Anniversary time...

I'm still here! 

I know I haven't been around much lately...
we are in the middle of a hectic, but exciting time.
Don't want to jinx anything, but will let you know when 
we are a few steps further ahead with our plans...

I have been able to get back to a little crafty time -
and oh, how I have enjoyed myself! 

I made this card for my Mum and Dads
anniversary, coming up next week.
I *think* they have been married 45 years... 
so wrote about that on the inside, but wasn't quite
sure enough - so didn't put it on the front. 

At the moment, I am working with limited supplies,
but created this clean and simple card.
Infact, I love the paper pack this came from 
(The Works, 99p per pack - 6 x 6 papers)
and have created 3 anniversary cards from that pack, which I 
will be sharing with you over the next week or two. 

So, this card was made with one paper, one stamp,
and 2 diecuts. 
 A little glossy accents picks out each of the hears on 
the paper background, but it's hard to see on the picture.

I would like to enter some challenges with this card...
Brown sugar - atg - 4 Aug
Jo's scrap shack - atg - 6 Aug
Aud sentiments - atg - 3  Aug
In the pink - use a stamp - 4 Aug
Southern girls - atg - 4 Aug

At Patties Creations this month,
 we would like you to...

 "make a splash! - include water in your image "

I used Patties gorgeous image,
Seagulls Roost
and thought this would be perfect for a fathers day card
for my father-in-law, as he loves holidaying at the seaside.

I coloured the image with my promarkers and
layered lots of colours, to give depth and a realistic feel.
The seagull in the middle, I decoupaged.
I did a little inking on the sky, to age the image a little
and mounted it all onto a woodgrain effect embossed piece.

I would like to enter this  into the following challenges:
