celebration of the years

well it is my in~laws wedding anniversary today~this is the card i made for them~ thought it would be a quick one but took ages..... (wish i had left it plain and not coloured he heart)

used the sketch over on :~




links on my side bar

used papermania paper, papermania confetti stamp, personal impressions word stamp, sizzix swirl dies, card candy, ribbon and flowers from my stash, finished with glitter and coloured with promarkers.

another wet school run.. came in, change of clothes and a hot drink was in order..... think i must have a clean up as lewis has a friend coming for tea tonight ~which lewis informed me he had invited his friend at school yesterday as he was going to bed....and the boys mum phoned last night to confirm her son had been invited~ we both had to laugh at the minds of 6 year olds!!..i really don`t mind as my boys have so few "friends"... being on the autistic spectrum.
