Mum and Dad's Anniversary

Good Afternoon everyone.  Hasn't it been a lovely morning, but going a bit nippy now and the weather lady has promised us gales and rain for this evening.  No sign of it yet though.

It's mum and dad's wedding anniversary tomorrow (48 years) so I've been out with her today to buy their present.  We went into Stockport and got them some new placemats, coasters, cups, egg cups and a vase from Dunelm Mill.  I am going to pick up some flowers on my way home from work tomorrow and drop them off with my card.  While I was in Dunelm I had to check out the crafty section.  There were some lovely paper pads but not a single one had a price on!!  This is one of my pet hates, so left without buying anything.

My card today is being entered into a few challenges:

Meljens Design Challenge - U R such an animal
Friday Sketchers Challenge - The Sketch
Stamp Something - Digi Week
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Pink, Polka Dots
Paper Playtime - Digi Monday, Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - Signs of Spring
Wild Orchid Challenges - Anything Goes
The Crafty Pad - Ribbons
Charisma Cards - 4 Legged Friends

I've used this lovely digi image from Meljens Design called 'bunny love' and coloured with Promarkers.  The papers are a freebie from My Minds Eye which came with a magazine.  The ribbon and gems are from my stash.  The flowers are Kaiser scrapbook and are flat but I have layered them up following the instructions here and painted over the edges with irridescent medium to add a little shimmer.  The sentiment is Paula Pascual.

Hi Debs!! :)
What a gorgeous card- the image is very sweet and I love the colour tones (those are some of my fav papers- I'm still hoarding most of my free pack for something *special* enough- 48 years of marriage would count, I think!!lol)!! :)
Thanks for your popping by my blog again the other week- what are the chances of us both being in the same little place!?! :) The internet is huge but can be such a small world at the same time!! :)
Hope you've been able to make the most of the beautiful sunshine we've had this last week- 6 days out of seven, I think... can hardly believe it!! :) Shame it seems like it's nearly over for now!! ;S
hugs, Rachel x

Paula said...

those flowers look rather interesting & I love the way the ears of the lady rabbit extend over the top of the image panel with that little heart - some nifty cutting there. Your colouring of the flowers in the rabbit's bouquet matches those of the patterned paper beautifully. I too hate it when there aren't prices - as if someone is going to ask??
Hope your parents have a lovely day & many congratulations.
