Catching Up!!

Well I finally managed to photograph my pile of cards and decided to post a couple of cards that I have handed out recently.

This first card was for my DH's birthday which was some time back in August. I am not sure where the inspiration came from for this card. I had it saved in a folder but it has no watermark attached so not sure who to give credit to. It was such a simple card but came up a treat.I have used Very Vanilla as the base for my card followed by Chocolate Chip then a layer of paper from the Outlaw DSP. I then stamped up the tree from Lovely as a Tree onto vanilla with Chocolate Chip. I used my Creative Memories circles to cut this out and also mounted onto Chocolate Chip. I stamped the saying from On Your Birthday onto vanilla cardstock then layered onto a piece of Chocolate Chip.

My next card is our Wedding Anniversary card (19 years!!). Our anniversary was on the 1st September a couple of days after my DH's birthday. Here is the card I made for him. He laughed when I gave it to him and I told him that I slaved away all day (not really!!) to make the perfect card for him!!

This set uses the lovely images from Forever in my Heart. I again went with Chocolate Chip followed by a layer of Baja Breeze and a piece of DSP from the Bella Rose pack. I then stamped the love border onto white cardstock with Chocolate Chip then stamped the heart onto white with Baja Breeze. The "love you" stamp is from Short & Sweet.

Hope you enjoy my creations and keep checking in over the next few weeks because I will be updating regularly and have some special things to share.
