Wedding Anniversary

Good morning to all my lovely friends and followers and a special welcome this morning to my new blog followers Sue, Tracey and  Ann thank you for following my blog I really appreciate it and I hope you will visit often and enjoy my posts.
My post today is to launch a new challenge over at Crafty Ribbons Challenge Blog The theme is Wedding or Anniversary cards and you must remember to always add a ribbon. This is the great prize for the lucky winner this week.

For my Design Team card I decided on an Anniversary card and as I was going away on holiday and running short of time I decided to use a Lili of the Valley Art Pad image. I do like these and cannot think why they stopped selling these and the gorgeous papers. I used the Meant to be Image and  I think this is still available as a stamp.

  1. Very pretty card the delicate lilac and that pretty ribbon. Looks like you had a wonderful holiday...hope this inclement British weather is not too much of a shock! xx

  2. Gorgeous card Carole! Beautifully embellished as usual and another wonderful card design. I love the embossed background and the sweet image you've used. It is a shame they no longer sell the image pads and paper pads any more. I can only think it was the postage costs that had an impact on their decision but I do think it's a mistake just like when they stopped blogging. I often bought a stamp or paper pad because of a card I saw on their blog so it's good that they've started the blog again. Hope you're having a great week so far. Debra x

  3. I have this stamp but do miss the art pads and papers. Gorgeous colours and embellies

  4. What a gorgeous design Carole!! Such a sweet image and I love how you've made the background full of texture with your pattern, lace and pearls! Very romantic style!! :) HUGS

  8. Carole, this is perfectly dreamy and brings such joy to my heart! I have always loved that LOTV image and am grateful you had the convenience of the Art Pad due to your time crunch. Your sweet detailing throughout is always so beautiful. The texture and elegance are stunning. Thank you for making my heart smile extra brightly tonight, my friend. :o)

    Hugs and blessings,
