Happy Anniversary

What no Graph'It Markers?
Nope diddly no 
Although they kept wanting to jump into my hands and were screaming at me to use them and colour
I ignored temptation!
A 55th Wedding anniversary is something very special and I wanted to put a lot of love into making my card.
It is for my Sister and her Husband, Sadly we havent seen each other for many years but we are  in phone contact.
The lovely DP I used is Save the Date by Teresa Collins
The Tag, Birdcage, birds and Butterflies were cut on my portrait. The flowers and ribbon are from my stash.
I used Antique Linen Distress Ink and finished off with some White Liquid Pearls

It's Christmas time and a fond farewell

Before I share my card with you today
I wanted to let you know that this will sadly be my last post for Crafty Sentiments.
I joined the team and did my first card on August 4th 2011 funny enough that was a Christmas card too.
About a year or so later I stepped up to DT Co-ordinator
Which I have enjoyed loads 
A fantastic team who have been so supportive 
and I love them tons , a few will stay life long friends I am sure.
But time has come for me to say a fond farewell as I look for ventures new
I wish all the team loads of love and luck
My card is part of the new release Christmas stamps, how cute is she!! The stamp is called My Gift
and will be instore from the 25th 
Coloured with Graph'It markers
and I have used the fantastic white Graph'it Shake.
The background papers and all the elements are from the 
Iced over the Letter box with a frosting of Glamour dust
