the card that just kept growing

This 50th wedding anniversary card ended up with a life of its own as I began working on it.  I wasn't happy with it, so I kept adding....and this is where the poor thing ended up!  On the inside I did the verse on parchment paper.



I boxed up the thank you cards (see previous post) in this little box I enjoy making for card gifts.
It is made from a SU designer paper.



And now I'm out the door for the gala afternoon of celebrating.

Daffodils and other things

I made some thank you notes for my sister.  Next Saturday her kids are having a grand Open House to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary.  The decorations will follow the theme of the flowers that were used in their wedding, which was daffiodils and pussy willows.   So.....with that in mind, I made her some cards, which I'm sure she will need for after the party, even though the invitation said, "no gifts please".

These images are all from clip art sets from PC Crafters.  The mounting papers are from SU, as well as any stamping.  Two of them have DP from the sets I used from PC Crafters.  The ribbon and pearls are from my "bling" drawers!

I am so thrilled to be able to make cards again. It was a wonderful week for me, and I'm brimming with ideas.  I am waiting for a huge order from SU Saleabration offers.  If any of you have contact with a SU person, this Saleabration has many, many freebies one can earn.  I'm so anxious for my order to arrive!!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I'm back after weeks down with a very bad back.  Tomorrow, I have been invited to a friend's home for a Valentine Brunch.  This is a tag card, I made to attach to a bag of goodies, as a thank you.

I'm looking forward to my second outing since Christmas!  Praising God  for easing of the pain!
Hope to be back at card making very soon.
