More anniversary cards


Embossing and inking, ribbons and pearls, this one is quite large at 10x10 with matching box.

Hello Peeps, hope you all all OK and your week going to plan.

My plans to share some photos of the cake I made for our daughter and hubby went out of the window as when I switched my camera on Saturday it showed a memory card problem. Luckily Alex had his camera equipment with him which meant I could get some profession photos taken (the couple I had taken were all lopsided), but he is on a shoot at Wembley this week so has not had time to process and send them yet. 

So until then thought I would let you have a look at some of the other cards I made for various family members to give them. Although I now have a new memory card the photos are none to special, I think I probably need to spend a bit of time setting the camera up again.

This one is actually dark blue, although looks more black in the photo.

Simple embossing and die cutting.

A new nestie frame, stamped image and blossoms.

Today is our own anniversary and tomorrow we are off for a couple of days spa break, a Christmas present which we saved for this week. Thanks for taking a peek and will blog the cake photos as soon as they come through.

How incredibly beautiful your card designs are, Brenda. While you have inspired me with each one, I am especially touched at heart by the first card. GORGEOUS! hugs, de

Oh these are all so lovely! I especially adore the first one, and 10x10 is massive! Mine are all 14x14cm, as that's the biggest square I can get out of a sheet of A4 and I don't have any bigger card! lol. x

Kat said...

Fabulous anniversary cards Brenda. My favourite though is the one you showed last week that you gave your daughter. the flowers on it are stunning.

I'm still being a hopeless, not to mention lazy, blogger. Tonight for a change I've been able to have a lovely browse around all my favourite blogs as my internet connection has stayed on all evening. Hope I've not just jinxed myself saying that!! I have been around just not getting the chance to comment!

Take care,

Kat xx
