Miss August

I can't believe it's over 3 weeks since I last posted!! Bad Blogger!!

Well I'm glad to be back after a hectic 3 weeks.

Firstly the build up to my girls breaking up from school. I'd decided to make teachers gifts this year & can certainly say I bit off more than I could chew . . . .almost. . . .  but the girls were delighted with the gifts I'd made for their teachers & the teachers were pleased as well so job done!!

I also had so many ordes to finish before the end of term both for work & people at the school I wouldn't see during the holidays.

Then I had visitors arrive from Australia on 23rd & we've done all the sight seeing stuff with them. Great times but exhausting & certainly no time to craft!!

So . . . . enough of the excuses!! I'm back & am so pleased to have been asked to guest DT for Crafty Creations for their next 4 challenges.

This weeks challenge is Wedding/Anniversary so I decided to do a 25th Wedding Anniversary card. The stamp is from the Stampin Up set Cheers to You & is a stamp I use quite alot as champagne glasses are so versatile. I've stamped on handmade paper & then wet the edges & torn around the image. This has been mounted on silver miri card & then onto a square of printed vellum. The whole thing is then mounted on white card & I've stamped the four corners using silver ink. I've wrapped some thin silver wire around the card & vellum & am really liking this effect. The sentiment is computer printed & then die cut using a sizzix oval window die.
