Bank Holiday Monday..

Good afternoon all and thanks for looking in on this ( wet ) Bank Holiday Monday....hope your day is going well so far...

What have you been up too...? Anything crafty?

Have you managed to watch Hochanda yet? After a few minor teething problems , which to be honest is expected with a new venture...I have found the Channel such a refreshing change....full of great demos, and so inspiring , and off course Barb was on twice....yah....just perfect...

Today I am going to share a card with you that I made for a very special couple...as it was their Silver Wedding Anniversary last week,,,

I started with the wonderful Clarity stencil , some ink and my much loved brushes and a piece of Stencil card...

Then I added this wonderful bride and groom,,,,I do seem to use this wee couple so much..

Some charcoal for shading...

Some numbers...

And some embellishments..

Here is a closer look...

On Saturday I had the day off, the first one in ages...and boy did I need it....especially as I have a couple of really busy weeks ahead....

So Karl, me Tess and Eric set off in the van....we went to the seaside.....

We were so lucky as the sun shone all day.....

Now this was the first time that Eric had been to a beach...you see Tess doesn't do water.....I know ....she is a Labrador !!!! But Eric on the other hand....oh he loved it...he went straight in.....And he didn't want to come out...

And I am sure he was smiling on this photo....spot those pearly white teeth....

I do hope that last picture made you smile as much as its is me.....

Smiling is good....

Time for a spot of ironing now....oh ...not so good..!!!! But it has to be done...

Enjoy the rest of your day....

Thanks for visiting, and pop back soon.

Much love and hugs...

  1. Hi Jo, great card! I have been leaving comments but they seem to disappear so let's hope this one stays! In case it does I will say again how much I loved your fantasy card, lots of colours and I love those wee fairy folk. Looks like Tess and Eric had fun at the seaside. Xx
