Anniversary card


















Its been such a lovely day here in Surrey that I have only had a little time for crafting, I have spent the day planting my pots with bedding plants, it has taken a long time as I have lots of pots to fill.  I am looking forward to a lovely display of geranium's and begonia's I will post a photograph when they are out!

Its my best friends Wedding Anniversary soon so I have taken the opportunity to made her a card now so I can enter it in The Daring Cardmakers Challenge this week.  My friends favourite colour is mint green and its the colour she had for her bridesmaids so I have used green in the card.

I wanted to have a go at Joys watercolour technique, and decided to use my Hero Arts antique brocade stamp with Broken China and Bundled Sage Distress ink, I am really pleased with the effect and will definitely try it again.
Hope you are all enjoying the Bank Holiday weekend ( if you are from the UK) and to my American visitors wishing you a fun Memorial Day weekend.

I find it so interesting that so many of us love to garden, too....can't wait to see how your pots look when they're blooming!

What a beauty this is Sally, she's going to love it.

It was too windy here for me to do my pots - my hayfever is worse on days like this - so I stayed in and messed about with paper and glue!
