Happy Anniversary!

This is a beautiful card made for my daughter and her husband's wedding anniversary.

I tried out a new medium that is so quick but very elegant, it is a 3-D decoupaged image of a cutie couple.  I used martha stewart punches and Cuttlebug embossing folder for the background on dark brown cardstock, and a rose pink bow and pearls.

Please leave a comment if it made you smile.  Thank you.

Friends Forever

My oldest and dearest friend Sylvia lives far away from me and I have not seen her in many years but we have kept in touch through all these years and this month she underwent surgery and I was thinking of her all that time.  The good news is that she is fine and already driving her car!  She was always a strong woman and I hope she recovers her strength soon. This was a 'get well card' I made for her.

Also, she and her husband just celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary and thats an achievement which is quite rare these days. The card was made with embossed dots on cream cardstock and a resin ornate frame enclosing the words "Best Wishes", using cream satin ribbon and pearls.  I have also added gold filigree photo corners and the number 50 in gold to give it an elegant look.  I wish them all happiness and much love, always!
