Silver Anniversary. . . . . . . . . .

Good morning guys and gals. Hope this find you full of the joys of Spring. Beautiful weather again the last few days but I think we may be in for a spot of rain mid week.

Welcome to Sylvie. Thank you for pressing the button. Sylvie is a team mate over at MAWTT so you can see what we have been up to on Thursday when our next DT post is on the blog.

Poor Mr D is still in a bit of pain and his cheek is still swollen, bless him. Soft foods are still on the menu but hopefully he'll be chewing like a good un again soon. 

As for me, the diagnosis is Achilles Tendonitis. I have to now go for a podiatry assessment for something to alleviate the problem but still rest it in the meantime. 

Now, my friend from school Elaine and her husband are celebrating their Silver Wedding Anniversary this week. I remember their shiny youthful faces when they first met each other (ah, those carefree teenage years) and here we are now, older but not necessarily wiser lol!!!
So, along with the Silver Wedding rose bush gift, this is the card I made for them.
Apologies for the top photo. Trying to get a great angle with mirror card with the card standing up, was a nightmare.

White card
Silver mirror card
Platinum card (Lime Tree)
CE Tied Together embossing folder
Presscut Square dies
SB Captivating Squares
SB Adorning Squares
John Lockwood Flower Hearts Elements stamps (Happy Anniversary)
Hobbycraft stamps (Silver and little flourishes)
Silver embossing powder
Silver ribbon (Mei Flower)
CE big pearl bling
Teeny silver bling (Mei Flower)
Slightly larger bling (Dovecraft)

I loved playing with the bow on this. I always find it easier to use a glue gun with this type of bow and yes, I thought I'd be different with 2 sizes of bling on the intersections of the embossing.

Right, hot chocolate has been placed beside me (I'm scheduling this) so time to tootle off.

Hope this week is kind and gentle to you.
