Two Firsts

Hello, all you good people. I expect you have all got sunshine whereveryou are. In true Scottish style, we've had thunder and torrential rain here today. Mind, it's got to be better than the damp, hangy, foggy stuff we've had for about the last week. Didn't seem to be able to make up it's mind what it wanted to do at all until it poured down but we've had a bit of everything, except sunshine that is!

I think I've just about recovered from 8 hours on my feet at the Take That concert last week and then another 6 hours tramping about at the Royal Highland Show on Sunday. I have to say, I'd stand for 80 hours for Gary and the boys but I'm definitely getting a bit old for this lark. Next time, I'm sitting! The Highland Show was good but it's a bit of a tramp. By the time we got back to the car, I had to ask if someone would like to drag my other leg in for me. I didn't think it was going to make it - it was dead on the end of my body!

I've done this card for a friend at work who's in-laws are celebrating 40 years of marriage. It's a bit weddingy (if there's such a word) but I quite like it. If she doesn't like it, she doesn't have to give them it. It can go in for Papertake Weekly which is Dawny P's sketch. I love her blog, she's dead funny and so down to earth and her sketches are absolutely fab. I've been using them a lot but this is the first time I've entered the challenge. It can also go in for Stamp Something which is embellishments this week. I quite like embellies, in case you hadn't noticed. This card has ribbon, lace, flowers and pearls on it and just for good measure I used glittered paper as well. I've never entered Stamp Something before, either so 2 new challenges for me this time.

Suzanne gave me the image. She won it in a challenge and I had my eye on it. Since I've never won anything in my life apart from a bottle of vodka (which went down very well), I think she took pity on me and gave me it.


The other side is just an oval nestie cut with green and cream cardstock with Happy Anniversary on it.

Here's my recipe:
The image is a Miss Anya but I don't know which one, sorry
Coloured with Watercolour pencils
Kay and Company Wedding Romance Glitter Paper
Coredinations Cardstock
Lawrence Llewelyn Bowen Renaissance Collection Lace
Kanban Pearls
Flowers and ribbon from Hobbycraft - I curled the wee stalk thingies around a pencil

Tools: Cuttlebug; Swirls Embossing Folder
Computer generated sentiment - French Script font
Fiskars Threading Water Punch

I hope it's not too weddingy.

Will try to get something done tomorrow because I definitely won't get much done on Friday since I will be watching the tennis. C'mon Andy!!!
