Wedding Anniversary Cards

Good morning,

I almost started off with an apology for my lack of blogging recently, but looking at my most recent posts I seem to start them all exactly the same way :( I honestly don't know where the time goes and feel a bit shell shocked that I'm posting during half-term, with the clocks having gone back an hour over the weekend...summer is officially over!

As I haven't made any cards recently I thought I'd share some anniversary cards I made a while ago but haven't had time to blog yet. I can't claim that I came up with the design though...I was inspired by a card I spotted on Debs blog (Especially For You) earlier this year and liked her design so much I 'borrowed' the idea for 40th, 50th & 60th Wedding Anniversary cards.

I really love this design, so thank you Debs for the inspiration.  I really hope you don't mind me 'casing' your original card design and I can't thank you enough for providing some much needed inspiration for these cards!
