WOYWW - Special cards for special people

Hello everyone and thank you for stopping by.

Well a quick post this week and no desk I'm afraid as nothing is going on there at the moment.  I am having a quick summer break before I launch into Christmas!

Firstly my photography page at the top of this blog is now up and running and it's where I'll be sharing  my trials and tribulations of camera class starting in September! The good, bad and the ugly! Do pop over and have a look. If I can impart any knowledge (Ahh, now there's the thing… Remembering stuff is not my strong point!) I will.

Two cards to share with you this week.  The wedding card I did for Saturday…all finished.

It really was a fabulous day and to be considered 'part of the family' when you aren't really was very, very special. 

The second card was for my lovely husband who celebrated his 60th birthday on Monday this week. After a long and fruitless search of the shops to find one, and with time running out, I made one. I hadn't wanted to because I find making cards for men really difficult. 
This one is in celebration of the many coastal walks we have enjoyed together. 

The background was done with DI s. The stamp is 'windswept' 3110 by Inkylicious and the embellishments on the right were stamps by Crafty Individuals, stamped on to a variety of scrap papers to get the right colours.  I used some  
glitter just to give them a bit of sparkle and then glued to a piece of bakers twine. He loved it!!!

 That's all this week, I said it was a quick post so I had better go. Won't be here next week as we are off on our travels…
 Have a happy week

  1. I LOVE that card for your hubby! The twine and seaside stuff is brilliant, no wonder he loved it. Have the best time on your special hols next week, hope it's fantastic :-)

  2. I'm with LLJ, that's a great card you made for your husband. I think we all find male cards tricky, but you've done a lovely job of that mini landscape. Re the sewing machine just get it out and have a play. I've found it's the only way to really learn. Getting the feel for it.

  3. I like both your cards, but my favorite is the one you made for your husband's 60th - Happy Birthday! I love the trim you created with the twine and miniature stamps. Happy WOYWW and have a blessed trip!

  4. Beautiful cards but I love the heart wreath best :) And lovely photo of the couple. Camera class sounds fun and worth doing - I'll have to watch for updates on that. Have a great holiday trip and of course,
    Happy WOYWW!

  13. I love how you embellished this card! I also find making masculine cards difficult..they just don't seem to like the bling like I do...
