Happy Anniversary Mr D................

Good morning everyone. Hope everyone is groovy.

Busy couple of weeks ahead for me as covering another store whilst their manager is on leave so extra days at work.......boo hiss! Will still try and keep on top of my visits to you. It may not be on the day but I'll get there eventually lol!!!

Thank you for your comments on "Boo !" I'm guessing that people do use them as invites perhaps as I'm not quite sure I would send someone a Halloween card unless they were madly into it. I've put mine into the window of the shop as we have a Halloween display at the moment. I shall then give it to our friends daughter at Halloween with some sweets, I think.

Now, I forgot that I hadn't actually posted the card I made Mr D for our anniversary this year. I have mentioned before that his favourite colour is red so whatever card I make for him, it has to have red in there somewhere. This time, he gets a hexagon of red roses. . . . . . and hey, Karen, Piggin Love has made an appearance again (this is one of the Piggins I don't mind dusting lol!!!)

White card
Red card
SB Bitty Blossoms
Sissix Hexagons
CE Swirling Hearts embossing folder
Crafts Too Love Hearts embossing folder (on centre hexagon but difficult to see)
John Lockwood Flower Hearts Elements stamps (Happy Anniversary)
Docrafts relations stamps (Husband)
CS Red PVA pearls

Mr D still has this on his chest of drawers next to our bed, bless him. Just the right amount of fussiness for a fella lol!!!

Elaine, Maureen, Val and Darnell, you are all funny and make me laugh out loud.
Jackie, so sorry your holiday turned out such a scare. Hope you are on the road to recovery and that your Mum is ok too.

I should also explain Kate's comment about Cid. Cid is a kitten from across the road, who tries to get into our house at every available opportunity. She even tried to get into John L's car the other week! Just didnt want everyone think Cid was anything to do with the local constabulary lol!

I promise to try and keep up with blogland the next couple of weeks and before you know it, it will be NEC time, yay! Nesta has said she will come this year to look at the gifts rather than the crafty stuff (that's an extra pair of hands to help me carry stuff hahaha!)

Until next time, take care all and be good.

  1. Don't work to hard over the next few weeks lol ... I would love to see a picture of Cid I hsve three cats myself.
    The card is great I really like the embossing folder your hubby must have loved it.
    Take care xx

  2. Hi Ang, such a lovely Anniversary card, no wonder Mr D keeps it on display. Take care with the extra workload, look after yourself. Bx

  3. Super card Ang, love the design. Belated Happy Anniversary to you both. Don't work too hard, Jx

  4. Hi Ang
    Gorgeous card! I love these bitty blossoms. Just the right size to have them 'en masse' on a card. Yes, just over two weeks to the NEC - can't wait! Hope work goes well. Best wishes, Anne O

  5. Ahh Happy belated Anniversary to you both .
    Mr Ds card is just awesome, loving the deep embossing and the beautiful shade of red .
    Just take care Ang , look where your going and don't slip on anything , we don't want you having any mishaps between now and NEC.
    Have a lovely day
    Elaine H X

  6. Hi Ang,
    Happy belated Anniversary to both of you.
    What a wonderful card, and very beautiful roses too.
    A great idea putting them around the hexagon .
    Fab embossing as well.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  7. I love this card Ang., fab design.
    Enjoy NEC, just aswell I cant be there, skint anyway. xxxx

  8. Morning Ang,
    Love your card.

  9. Good morning Ang, wow all your flowers look so good, I can never get two to look the same!! Eye is still a bit of a bother but I will have to learn to live with it, some say it could take a twelve month, what fun.....mums ok thank you though getting a bit more forgetful. I hope to go down at the weekend but it might be on the train, haven't decided yet got so much to do for our girls craft retreat weekend which is the following weekend. Not going to the NEC this year so will wait for your report. Take care and don't overdo it working, love from Jackie xx

  10. Ha ha, we only have your version of CID, I will keep my own Counsel there!!!
    Love your Card, this is one of my favourite embossing folders. George got the usual one again in October, and never noticed!!!! He forgot to get me one - oooh - but I got a lovely meal out of him instead.
    Don't work too hard, I just look in every day anyway, so I'll catch you around the pond.
    By the way, a good verse to put inside the card for your friends daughter is:-
    Trick or treat,
    Smell my feet.
    Give me something
    Good to eat!!
    love Maureen xxx
