40th Wedding Anniversary


Good morning everyone...we've just had a really severe downpour here and its feeling quite chilly...more like April than June! Just as well I've no intentions of going our today...I'm stuck indoors nursing a chest infection and feeling very sorry for myself...the doc has given me some steriods but I'm having some really weird side effects from them not least my legs feel like lumps of lead!

This is a card I made recently for some friends of ours who recently celebrated their 40th Wedding Anniversary...I was a bit stuck what to do as I didn't want to go all cute and cuddly so another fairly clean and simple design from me! I added some stickles to the embossed background but had terrible trouble getting them to show up in any pics I took!

Card Stock: SU! (Ruby Red)
Embellishments: Ribbon, Pearls & Stickles from my craft stash!
Tools: Scalloped Circular Nesties, CB Embossing Folder, SU Border Punch & numbers cut on the Cricut Expression
Circular Sentiment: Created on the PC

p.s chest infections are very nasty so its good you have a prescription. If the side effects make you feel even worse than the original illness, don't suffer, ask the Dr for different tablets.

Wow - 40 years...lovely couple and good for them for lasting so long. It's a gorgeous card. I can see the stickles on the swirls you embossed; so lovely. I love this simple style as it is so very elegant, Donna. You poor dear - feeling so bad and the steroids not helping. I'm down with a nasty cold...in June, mind you! Ugh! Stay out of that horrible weather or you'll get worse. I do hope you get better, sweetie. Nothing like a cold to take the creative craftiness out of ya! ;-) But what a great reason for everyone to wait on ya hand and foot...someone outta tell my husband that's how it goes! LOL
