Golden wedding anniversary


This is a commissioned card using Kanban foiled supplies and letters and numerals from The Works. The heart was chipboard that was swiped with versamark and heat embossed with gold powder three times.

All of the foiling on the card, including the corners, is gold, although here most of it looks black.

A summer birthday


I used to blog a lot ... in fact, now I wonder how I had the time to do so. My husband, John, died in November and since then I've only been blogging my own challenges. It's strange that I've actually had more time to do things, but just couldn't bring myself to share. I've still been crafting ... mainly commissioned cards ... lots of them, so I still have plenty to share.

So, here I am blogging a card that is nothing to do with my own challenges. I hope this is the start of more to come ... trying to get myself going into the right groove again.

A commissioned card using the photo provided of the little boy who will be 2 years old. The background papers are DCWV summer collection from a few years ago.I used lots of puffy stickers and the numeral 2 from stash. The card blank is an A5 that opens sideways.
