Hello my lovely crafty friends, guess who did not have a card ready for my anniversary yesterday ???

I am hoping to restore normality after schools/college started back yesterday - until next week when we have back holiday monday and teacher training day tuesday. Back to my card....this is what l made for my hubby for our anniversary yesterday, the stamp was one of the bargain half price ones l picked up at the show in march.

Good morning my lovelies, my word these saturdays sure do come around quick these days lol. Today is the start of the new challenge over at Allsorts and l am host for this week and have chosen the challenge which is...
I love this style and am still in practice mode - my daughter bought me a papermania paper & embellishment kit a few years ago which has the most gorgeous reds and golds but l decided on much softer tones this time. I made this for my best crafty buddy Julie, she has received it so l am safe to show it on here just incase she is popping by.
My teamies at Allsorts have produced the most beautiful inspirational pieces to share with you, so looks like they enjoyed the theme too. I hope you all pop over to the challenge blog here and support me by joining in and we have some great sponsors too.
