Sweet Anniversary

Hello, and welcome!

Thank you for the birthday wishes.....Doreen, you're just showin' off, lol!

I was supposed to be doin' some crafting today, but other stuff got in the way.....ggrrrrr......but, I do have a card to show...yaaaay!
Almost forgot that I hadn't posted this one, because it was actually given to my daughter (Gillian) and son-in-law (Ian) for their 12th wedding anniversary, 19th June.
It's quite similar to one that I posted a week or so ago, because I liked the layout, and that the sentiment is the focal point......would love to know what you think..........

I wanted the result to be soft and feminine.....yep....I know it's for a couple, and not just the wife, but fellas don't really care about the details.....or do they?....correct me if I'm wrong, lol........and Gillian is very girlie, in a soft and graceful way........

The sentiment is a TLC freebie, which I cut with a Nestie, inked with PM Soft Green, and yep....ModPodged around the edge....same with the label underneath..........the heart was black, so I ModPodged away, heehee......

I thought this second freebie (freebie from McMahon Designs) was perfect for the card, and I cut with a Nestie, coloured around the edge with Soft Peach PM, and Soft Green.......MPodged as per.........

I would love to say that I doodled these gorgeous flowers, but they were yet another freebie digi....again, sorry, not sure where from.....let me know if you recognise 'em, so I can give due credit, because I think they are delightful........coloured as above, and glittered as above.  Have I ever mentioned that the famous MP gives a kind of thickness to the paper, so the image becomes more substantial...that stuff is miraculous, lol.........used a Martha Stewart border punch, inked........

I like the contrast to the soft colours that the black and white gingham ribbon gives...........the pins were clear crystal topped, so coloured with a black Sharpie...........

How d'ya like the ickle butterfly? I won her, and three other fabby digis, from  I coloured and glittered as above, and thought she looked lovely in that corner, lol!

By the way, the DPs are from a WR Memorykeepers stack that I found for £1 at T.K.Max, when we were in Cornwall....bargain!
Hopin' to get at least one card made tomorrow....can somebody please come and stand guard on my porch......must do somethin' about that flashin' light that goes off, every time I step into my craft room!!
See you later,

Anything goes
