Wedding Anniversary

Hello to all my lovely crafty friends and followers  I hope you are having a great week . I want to start with a special welcome to my new follower Sylvie thanks for joining my blog I hope you continue to visit and enjoy my posts .
Today is our Son and Daughter in Laws third Wedding Anniversary and I'm sharing the card I made for them with you. I imagine their Anniversary celebrations will be a bit different this year with a seven week old baby more nappy lit than candlelit !!

Card Recipe

8x8 Blank card
Dots A4 Embossalicious embossing folder and  Heart embossing folder free in magazine.
Stamp LOTV In Love painted with Promarker and Copic pens
Flowers are Poppy Stamps the organza flowers on the top I think are from Boyes Stores
Magnolia Do Hickey leaf and swirl die
Ribbon was from Hobby Craft
Resin Flower Melissa Francis
Sentiment LOTV Greetings Postmarks
Spellbinder die Moroccan Accents
Sparkle hearts I won in Debra's candy draw thanks Debra they were perfect.
The pearl corner idea I got from the lovely Bev Rochester's blog I thought they were just right for this card.Thanks Bev for the idea. The pearls are from my stash
Sewing Machine and topstitch thread
The Ribbon and Swirl die were the ones I used on their Wedding Invitations.
 I used Promarker and Copics as I have yet to find a watercolour card as white as this and wanted a white on white background. I've bought a few different pads but they are always a pale ivory colour if anyone knows of any really good white then please let me know the make.

Well my week started out well yesterday when I met some friends for afternoon tea at Wynyard Hall the weather was perfect for a change and we enjoyed bubbly and tea on the terrace this is the photo the waiter took. It was great to catch up as I'd not seen a couple of my friends since Christmas. 

Well  I'm going out shortly to start the shopping for the weekend. Fiona and Martin are coming at the weekend so we are having an informal get together for family and friends on Saturday so they can  meet Miles.We are both looking forward to having Miles in our home for the first time and seeing all our family and friends.

I hope you all have a great week sadly its raining again here today I thought summer had finally arrived yesterday !! Hugs Carole x

  10. Oh my! what a very beautiful card, I adore the subtle colouring of the sweet image and all the lovely textures, and gorgeous embellishments.
    With regards to the white card I have been using Joanna Sheen's Satin Elegance recently which in my opinion is nice and white, and also lovely and smooth for stamping on. It is also available as paper as well as card. I hope this is useful.

  17. Such a beautiful card Carole! The subtle colouring of the image is just perfect for the card design and your embellishments are lovely. I'm pleased you found a use for my candy. It's a great idea to use some of the things you used on their wedding invites as it's made the card so much more personal to them.
    Bubbly and tea with friends sounds wonderful and you were lucky with the weather. Give Miles a cuddle from me. Did they like the socks? I thought they were so cute with the pom poems on them. Debra x
