Happy Anniversary.

I've had a bit of a wasted day today! I don't know what I did in the morning apart from catching up on a few of my favourite blogs. Then in the afternoon my daughter was going to Peterhead to the bank and she asked if I wanted to go for a coffee. To be honest I really wanted to stay at home and make some cards but I didn't like to say no. She did buy me a coffee and a muffin and then we went into Thornton's and I bought some sweeties and she bought me a present from Yankee Candles for my birthday. I think it's a diffuser...is that the right term?

So by the time we got home I didn't have much time to make anything but I wanted to get my card made for Penny Black's 2nd Anniversary blog hop. I needed an anniversary card for my husband....for today! Yes I was daft enough to get married on my birthday! That means he only has one chance to forget my birthday and our anniversary lol! Actually he never has in all these years....and it is quite a lot of years.

Sorry for the quality of the photo. I had a reasonable photo but when I looked at the Secret Crafter challenge I realised that I had written down 2 embellishments instead of 3 so I had to add the little heart charm lol!

Edited to add :- I've changed the photo. So if you think this one's not very good you should have seen the one I took last night lol!!

I used :-

Image and sentiment :- Penny Black.

DP :- Tim Holtz - vintage shabby.

Colouring :- Promarkers.

Card candy :- Craftwork Cards.

Ribbon from stash.

Challenges entered :-

Penny Black :- Sketch and image.
Secret Crafter :- 3 embellishments, 2 papers and 1 image.
Pile it On :- Cute and Cuddly.

Now I'm off to enter these challenges and start the Penny Black 2nd anniversary blog hop. Ooops nearly forgot I should also catch up with my DT work too. I've been out at a friends making cards. A few of us do this every fortnight and make cards and have a blether. I'm the slow one, the one that's usually last to finish lol!

Tomorrow I really need to get my DT cards done. I'm a bit late this week but I'll get them done in time. I expect I'll be at Mhairi's flat again this weekend! Still we should be finished before too much longer.

Looking forward to the weekend even though I'm either cleaning or decorating!
