The Queen and I......

..........share the same wedding anniversary (and hubbys of course), so today is that day! I have just received a beautiful bouquet of flowers in lovely shades of pink.
Aren't they lovely? Congratulations to everyone else who shares a special day today!
A couple of weeks ago I made a swing card as a challenge on Just Bex but I wasn't happy with it (it is further down on the blog). Yesterday I decided to have another go as it is a friend's birthday on Friday and this time it is much better.



I printed one of the Pink Petticoat papers straight onto ivory hammered card. Flowers are Prima and Papermania. The large pearl brad is Papermania and the small Primas have a Liquid Pearls centre (not that they show up on here!)

I also made a couple more Christmas cards with bits that were still on my desk.

Quick and easy! Blue fibres wrapped around a piece of white pearlescent card edged with blue finished off with glittery die cut snowflakes attached with eylets using my Cropodile.Quickutz snowman sat on a background of snowflakes stamped with a Debbi Moore background stamp. Paper is the DCWV Christmas pad from last year, eyelet set with Cropodile and ribbon from stash.
I just love this Santa stamp but DD says it is spooky! She's not a small child either, she's 14. Anyway, he is stamped with a black Versafine ink pad onto white pearl card and mounted onto black pearl. Spotty paper is again from Pink Petticoat tied with a white organza ribbon. Greeting is one of the little Studio G sets finished off with an ab crystal to dot the i.

And finally for now

This card also fits last Friday's DCM dare as the angels are mounted onto gold card. These two stamps have got to be amongst my very favourites. They are just soooooooooo cute.

I now need to tidy up then carry on with some jewellery. I may be back later with the midweek 'Little Extra' from the DCM team.
