Hi everyone and a special hello to my new followers from our World Cardmaking day blog hop! Hopefully you will check in on all the days as there is some amazing blog candy on offer:)
We are just back from a lovely weekend in Portsmouth to celebrate my DIL's birthday and had a fantastic afternoon in Hamble.
Lara's card is a cross over card, which is two square cards joined together and each flap is cut in half diagonally so that the decoration on the centre panel can be seen. She loves Forever Friends and anything sweet, hence the cakes in the box!
The paper on the front is an embossed one from some candy that I won a while ago. The label with the sentiment was cut from my silhouette and the bear was stamped and coloured with PM's and mounted on a beaded oval nestie. I punched 2 holes with eyelets and threaded brown ribbon through and tied a bow.
Today is our anniversary (41 years, how did that happen!) and I used the same stamp to make a card for Jim. The BP was from the same candy and I used an MS punch to edge it and added some ribbon and mounted the bear onto a nestie.
As I write this I think Jim is frantically making me a card on Publisher and Dom(eldest son) is cooking a wonderful risotto:)
Thanks for visiting and we are off again on Sunday to Zante so apologies for the lack of comments on your blogs but I will try to visit if I can get internet access!
