Diamond Wedding

Good Morning All!!

They said today was gonna be nice, yet to see it mind, it's dull and damp.  Was hoping to give my car a good old clean today but hat's looking very unlikely now as we are off out this afternoon to check out hopefully one last venue for my 40th Birthday in September, gosh it's been a headache trying to find somewhere, everyone seems to want to get married on my  Then this evening Steve is taking me out for a lovely meal at our favourite italian for a valentine's treat.  Anyway on to my card for you today....

I made this on the evenings earlier in the week for my manager at work who wanted a mnore personalised Diamond Wedding Anniversary card for her OH's grandparents.  Gosh, 60 years of marriage, thats definately worth celebrating, don't you think?  The image is from Just Inklined, and has been coloured with Promarkers and Sakura Stardust clear.  I am entering this card into the following challenges...

Sparkles Forum Monthly Challenge (now on a brand new forum!!) - Anything Goes

A Spoon Full of Sugar - Lets See Some Love

My Time To Craft - Hearts & Flowers

Passion For Promarkers - Let There Be Love

One Stop Crafts - Love Is In The Air


I only really have weekends to sit down and join in with challenges, I only really look at the challenge themes and not always the rules such as how many challenges I can combine with as my spare time is precious and with so many challenge blogs I just don't have the time to read everything, so if I have broken any rules with the amount of challenges combined etc.., then please accept my apologies and please remove me if need be.  I enter the challenges for my own personal enjoyment not for the prize on offer.


As mentioned in my challenges list the Sparkles Forum has now changed homes and you can find the new forum HERE, please pop along and join for daily friendly chatter, swaps, challenges, tips & advice etc..., it caters for many crafts not just cardmaking.  Hope to see you there!!

Enjoy your Saturday and weekend everyone, and thanks for stopping by.
