As Time Goes By

Hey guys, 

For this next card I have a slight confession to make! I didn't make this card in its entirety! My grandparents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last Friday and my sister wanted to help make a card from her and her son rather than just made by me, I was really proud of some of the choices she made although I did guide her in the right direction with some of the things she wanted to do haha! 

We have used dies from the Sue Wilson Italian collection and heat embossed a sentiment which says 'As Time Goes By' 

We misted some white paper roses with cosmic shimmer vintage mica mist and I made some hat pins using the beads in my stash! 

I have some more anniversary cards coming up so keep your eyes peeled. :-) 

Hope you are enjoying the tennis and let's hope this weather keeps up! 

More coming shortly! 

Love and crafty hugs

Hey guys, 

How are you all doing.......?

These last few months have been so busy and lots of changes have happened which has forced me to leave my crafting behind temporarily! I just completed my degree in Archaeology at the University of Manchester. Writing my dissertation took so much of my time and drained any brain power I had left I couldn't think creatively for crafting. 

I moved house and all my equipment has been in storage until I could find a suitable place for it all. My sister kindly gave me access to her garage and I have a lot of work to do for it to be a working craft area but I am so grateful to her for the space. She lives two doors up so it's nice and handy! 

Today I have a male birthday card I made. I didn't get chance to get a picture of the card with the sentiment attached but you get the general idea of the theme. 

The black card stock is heat embossed with the tail section of the main image using ranger perfect medium and cosmic shimmer black detail embossing powder. The gold card is from my stash and I think it was originally purchased from pay-per-box. 

The main stamp is from inkadinkadoo and is a gorgeous peacock. I love their stamps and due to the colour of the rubber you can always find them in your stash because the bright green stands out a mile! I used cosmic shimmer flake and glitter glue and cosmic shimmer golden gilding flakes! 

I hope you all like this card as I really do struggle to make cards for men! Anyone would think I had a natural advantage due to been a man but I really don't like making them haha! 

I have a couple of posts which are all going to live in the next day or two! I'm playing catch up so sorry if you all feel bombarded! 

Crafty love and hugs!
