Oops...

...I forgot to post this - sorry Sweet Stampin' teamies!  It wasn't my team's week for posting, but the theme is 'weddings & anniversaries', and I had to make an anniversary card anyway.  So I joined in, and then forgot all about it!  This week's sponsor is Whimsy Stamps, with 5 digi stamps of the winner's choice, and our monthly sponsor is Joanna Sheen who is offering a £10 voucher prize.


Now I must admit, I'm not very happy with this card - it isn't quite how it looked in my head!  It was another of the cards that my Auntie asked me for, and she was happy with it, so I suppose that's ok!  I've cut the hearts from pearlised card, using a sizzix primitive hearts die, embossed the hearts with the divine swirls folder, and added some little red pearls.  The corner is a MFT dienamics die, and the sentiment is Stampin' Up.

We've not stopped today!  Visited my uncle, as it was his birthday today, then went shopping for school uniform... Dex tried on his little jade green polo shirt and looked soooo sweet and proud - I managed not to blub though!  Then we've spent the afternoon at my mum's, and I had to squeeze in a couple of hours in the craft room when we got back.  Hoping for a quieter day tomorrow!  Hope you've all had a lovely weekend :o)
