The Anniversary Waltz

It's Keryn's turn to set the challenge on the Daring Cardmakers this week and when she asked us to make Anniversary cards I had a whoopdedoop moment!
This was because just a few days earlier an order for two personalised Anniversary cards had popped into my mailbox - what a result! (Thanks, Keryn lol)

Please check out the wonderful cards from the Design Team over on the Daring Cardmakers Blog, if you follow the links to our personal blogs you always find out more info about what we used to make them. As always we'd love it if you'd join in with our dare - so if you do, just add your link to the message thread and we'll come and see what you've made.

So, here's my card for this week, the first of the anniversary cards I need to make (hopefully it'll spur me into actuion and I'll get the other one done soon too!)

Basic card is a 14cm sq gatefold
Papers Bella Bella from MME, Robo-cut monogram, hearts and flower Cuttlebug dies, Prima Artful Flowers, tiny gems from Anita's gem wheel, lace, ribbon, glittered brad, other flowers from stash.


This was much more of a struggle than it should have been - do you get days like that?
Today I need to make a "Congratulations" card as our eldest niece Aimee got her A level results yesterday and scored three A's so will be on her way to her first choice Loughborough Uni next month.
Hope all your kiddiwinks did equally as well!
See you soon
