Pansy Bloom & 50th Anniversary present!

Hi Everyone, I'm combining 2 posts into one, so lots to see and read, allow some time LOL. you have been warned!

Firstly the Outlawz Sketch challenge, I used
Sprite Pansy AuroraWings digitally coloured
Dp's and pansy by Alexis Design Studio
Spectrum Noir pens to edge paper and colour lace and ribbon, to match
Pin dot dies, oval Tattered Lace, square Susan Wilson
sentiment Doodle Pantry

Now for something different -

Our friends had their 50th wedding anniversary last week and a little while ago I promised to show you their present from us. What do you get a couple who have everything and don't want presents?

Luckily I saw an idea on the web and was able to buy the last glass cutting board for the kitchen top at our local Dunelm! The silver effect surround on the glass was already on it and I added a leaf shape, their names and when they married. I'm pleased to say they liked it.

Cut on the Cameo, vinyl was used as a stencil and
 I then used Armour etching cream,
 I found moving the cream around for about 5 minutes was a good result,
 I added it to the underside of the glass.
black paper underneath to show the etching

I then decided to add some fun with a couple of mugs,
adding vinyl, cut on the Cameo - wifey and hubby
and 50 inside a heart shape

this is the gift box for the mugs, cut on the Cameo
from a paper pack from The Range
