Totally Gorjuss 190 - Wings.

Good morning everyone, it's time for another challenge at Totally Gorjuss. This week our theme is "wings." I've chosen to use butterflies on my card this week.

Here it is.


I used :-
Sentiment :- Rubber Stampede.
Butterflies :- Papillon Potpourri from SU cut out with SU punches.
Pearls :- Hobby House.
Ribbon from stash.

I made this card for my lovely niece and her husband who will celebrate their Silver Wedding Anniversary on the 1st of July. Yeah I know difficult to believe I'm old enough to have a niece who's been married 25 years lol! My brother is 9 years older than me so I was quite young when Angela was born.

Sorry the photo isn't very good. I should have checked it before I posted it but it's on it's way to Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis now.

Challenges :-
Creative Card Crew :- No DP.
Simon Says Stamp :- Anything Goes.
Cute Card Thursday :- Fly Like a Bird.
Addicted to CAS :- Take Flight.
Crafting When We Can :- Keep it Simple.

I've now got another Silver Wedding Anniversary card to make. One of the girls at work celebrates hers on the 9th of July. So that'll be three in a row. 1988 must have been a popular year for weddings.

I may be a bit missing in action this week. We're meeting my daughter and her family this afternoon to collect her dogs. They're off to the Lake District for a few days and the dogs are coming to us instead of going into kennels. That means 4 Labradors instead of our own "gruesome twosome." Not sure how this is going to work out!! So if you don't see me around you'll know why. Between all these dogs and working full time again next week I might be a bit busy!!

Thanks for looking and I'm looking forward to hearing what you think. I'll try to catch up later.
