This week the challenge on Penny Black Saturday Challenge was All My Favourite Things.
I did a card for a winter wedding anniversary
I have used my favourite colour pink and my favourite of my new xmas Penny Black stamps - this delightful hedgie couple is from Jolly Friends t for transparent set. They are so cute and I have a feeling that they might end up on DHs Christmas card this year. I don't make many easel cards but I was impressed with the wonderful scalloped circle Christmas cards that my team mate Diane was making at the weekend and borrowed some of her large circle cutters so that I could make some of my own (I hope she might show some of the cards that she made at the weekend on her blog soon - they were really lovely). The ribbon threading die was also borrowed from Diane and I think it is a Marianne D die. The little snowflakes are punched from pink glitter card with a Martha Stewart border punch. The congratulations is a HOTP stamp and I used Stampin Up punches to mount the stamped greeting on. The pink swirly paper is from Craft Creations. For the snow on the umbrella I have used Woodware Fluffy Stuff which was lightly glittered with Stardust Stickles, I used Icicle stickles under the hedgies feet. So lots of faves included in this card - the stamped image, colour pink, stickles and glitter cardstock. The card is very sparkly in real life but sadly has not been captured by my photographs - if there is a knack to photographing glittery things I certainly don't have it LOL!!
