Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.

A neighbour popped in the other day quite late in the afternoon to ask if I had any Anniversary cards as it was her 57th Wedding Anniversary the next day, and she needed a card for her hubby.
Now I only make Anniversary cards when asked , and don't keep any stock of them which I must rectify.
So I made her this card specially in about an hour. 

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The papers are Graphic 45.
The numbers are wooden which I painted with Starlight paint Agean
to try and match the papers.
This paint dries in mins so it's perfect.
The heart die is a Tonic one.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Well you have made a grand job of Jenny at such short notice, I hope she was pleased with it, xxx

This is superb and I'm sure it will be much appreciated. I always find with anniversary cards and baby ones too that even if you have a stock people often look and say they'd like something a bit more personal maybe, or else the colour/year/anniversary is wrong so I don't keep many to hand.
