Happy Anniversary

  Hi everyone,
  may I say a big THANK YOU to every lovely person who has joined my blog, and everyone who 
has commented on my creations.

Today's card is one I made for my sisters Wedding Anniversary in July. Next year is her big 50th one.
I started with an 8x8 card made out of Crafters Companion A3 White Pearlised Card.
I matted and layered it with silver mirror card and mint pearlised paper with roses embossed on it.
I used some lovely lace again that I inherited from my mother. Flat back mint pearls from my stash.
Spellbinders lacy circles, Parisian Motif, Parisian Corners, Bitty Blossoms to make the roses out of 
the left over paper. This paper makes lovely roses, the dark green card to make the leaves, and white to make the leaf spray, form Spellbinders foliage dies. The ivy was from Hobby Craft. A large organza 
bow with button in the middle. The paerlised hearts were from eBay. This was a quickie so I had to
put a peel off for the sentiment, as I was in the middle of making my granddaughter's wedding cards.
Oh and I forgot Glossy Accents for the drops of water on the leaves and flowers.
I hope you like it.

Hello dear friend,
what a beautiful new photo and I must agree with Christine, such a lovely smile. Isn't it funny how a smile can light up the face and make others feel welcome; and that is exactly how it feels to enter your blog now and see that warm smile.
I adore the colour scheme you have used on this latest card and the card itself is absolutely beautiful. So well constructed and the flowers are stunning, anyone would think they were ready made, they are so perfect. I definitely need to purchase the bitty blossom dies as they look like they are worth every penny. I will put them on my wishlist for next months paycheck.
Have a great evening. love Linda

Hi sweetie, it's me again
I have a little tip that may help any newbies in bloggland.
If you would like to see a card on a blog in closer detail (as long as the creator hasn't limited its size) instead of just left clicking on it to bring it into a black page, right click on it instead and then select 'Open in new Tab'. Click onto the new tab and you should see a plus sign as the cursor now, click this onto the image again and it will blow the image up even more. Sue Wilson, you, Christine Harrop, myself and many others don't limit the size of our photos so the tiniest of details can easily be seen when using this method.
Love Linda x
