Golden Wedding Anniversary

One of the cards I've made recently that I had to wait till the person receives it. It does look rather busy but in real life its not that bad.

First of all I embossed two Bricked by Tim Holtz you may be wondering why two, the reason is simply I made a square card and the folder is for a rectangle. My join is under the ribbon which I wish I just used my white grosgrain but it was stuck and wasn't going to be moved.

My Arch Window is from Spellbinders back with gold and the numbers I think are Simon Says Stamp numbers but I cut them twice and layered.

My flowers are Memory Box Fresh Foliage and the flowers are memory box too along with Weeping Willow finish with some gold pearls. The sentiment is LOTV that is gold embossed.

Glad to hear the couple who received it loved it.

So this was the empty alcove in the dining room that had three shelves on bars at the back, which housed the PC and a lot of other stuff. 

Here's the alcove now looks much nicer although the fitter was annoyed that the display shelf in between the glass cupboards wasn't bubbled wrapped like the bookshelf and was damaged. But it should arrive this week and his is making sure it does because he doesn't get paid till the job is finished.

The other stuff apparently isn't allowed back so muggins here has to find new homes for everything. I have one little cupboard that now has 6  7lt really useful boxes full of Penny Black stamps and I've even sorted out some to give away. Now I have to find somewhere for the next 12 drawers of crafty stuff.


  1. Nobody does wow quite like you Debby, it's a delight. Good luck with the reorganising, it always seems like a never ending job to me.
