25th Anniversary

 Hi everyone, another card I had done but not posted, seems there are quite a few, so look out.

This card was for my Goddaughter and her husband. I had forgotten with one thing and another and had to do it quickly. Anyhow, as it had to be done quickly I knew I had something I could do in my files so, I went and cut it out with my Silhouette adding the 25 onto the heart shape. I had done one similar, though I can't find it now! I stamped the sentiment and the hearts, then added the cut silver card onto the heart shape white card, I decided to add a silver button gem. I had to deliver it by hand to get it to them in time. Photo quality is not good as it was dark and raining!

birds heart - Craft Bundles
gems - stash


We have the floor in the cupboard still drying out and waiting for the bedroom carpet fitter, the bed base is being replaced! Waiting for that to be delivered. So still in a mess, although not as it was, thankfully. I'm not particularly house proud, but hate mess. I hope we'll be sorted with it all completed in a couple of weeks. Keep your fingers crossed. 

I saw a quote recently, which I though appropriate for me at the moment.

Home - Breathe!
focus on what matters.

What a gorgeous cut Faith and clever to add the 25 to it. I can just imagine how shiny this is in real life - I'm having a struggle with photos on some of these grey days too. It's hard to be serene when chaos reigns all around isn't it but I love your positive attitude and that is a great quote. Sending more hugs! Vicky x

Hi Faith, love the card. I know they appreciated it, 25 is the first really big deal. Halfway there to 50! lol If we get to 40, I'm going with 40 is the new 50, heehee. May will be 35 for us, so we will try to eat dessert first! Dear friend, you are more than welcome to any of my sentiments! None are copyrighted and I'm pretty sure someone somewhere said it before me. One of those toga wearers said nothing is original and I believe it. Hoping your house gets back to normal soon, xoxo

Gorgeous card Faith, I know your Goddaughter and husband loved it too. I am so loving that heart file you used-perfect for an anniversary or wedding! Sounds like you have had some issues with rain (or a burst pipe) getting into the house? I'm sorry I'm so behind and don't know what is going on, but my thoughts and prayers are with you and hubby that you get it all resolved very soon! That is the perfect quote for all of us to focus on as life is challenging! Hugs, Brenda

This is such a pretty anniversary card and I love that heart with the love birds and noted number attached! You're amazing with your Silhouette machine always! I just love your quote too, and I wish you peace in the coming days until your project is finished.

Kate said...

So pretty! I pulled out my Silhouette a couple of weeks ago. It had been collecting dust for a couple of years!

I hope things are settling at your home. It's been a couple of weeks since this post.
