Hello there I hope you are well, the days and months are flying at the minute and I have a feeling it will speed up even more soon enough. Yesterday we celebrated our wedding anniversary and naturally I had to make a card for my hubs so this is what i am sharing with you today.


It uses the gorgeous set from the Seasonal Catalogue called Affection Collection and it was the first set I bought and funnily enough the last one to use :)

I used a combination of  Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, some Very Vanilla and a partridge in a pear tree :) I hadn’t realised just how many colours I used until I got to name them.

The Chevron embossing folder added a bit of extra depth to my plain background while the layered focal point provides all the colour.

Lots of banners to let my sweet know that he really is the no 1 bestest husband in the whole world (well at least 70% of the time mwahahahaha)

I spritzed everything with the aid of the spritzing tool from Stampin’Up! and the espresso marker. The label was cut with the Apothecary Framelits, love that set of framelits.

I only have 6 more places left on my next April Retreat if you would like to treat yourself to a weekend of pure crafting indulgence in stunning surroundings sampling great food then read on HERE and email me to reserve your place. Thank you for stopping by hope to see you again soon till then big hugs xx
