Emerald Anniversary

A friend asked me to make Anniversary cards for her Nan. I had done several cards for her own Wedding a few years ago.

I used my Forever Friends cd to make one for her young son to give to his great Grandparents.DSC01649[1]

It’s a DL sized card as I folded the A4 sheet back on itself.

This one is an image from Romantic Moments cd from MCS. The original is a single rose but I copied, flipped and rotated it. I added a simple sentiment in a fancy font.

The final one is a large 8 inch square card. Again it’s an image from MCS Romantic Moments Cd. simply printed onto super smooth paper and mounted onto pearlescent paper decorated with another MS punch then onto green card.

This is a close-up of the sentiment. kelle close up

It took me ages to match up the font for the insert as i’d forgotten that i’d done the front on the laptop and realised that the fonts are not the same on the pc. Why I don’t know as they both use the same edition of Windows.

Sad moment

My Dad passed away at the end of last year and a couple of months ago we went with Mum to order the headstone for him.

I helped her with the wording and the etched image on it is taken from the card I made for her Birthday in August. It’s a fuchsia image from the MCS Cross Stitch Cd.

DSC01658 It was erected last week and I have just been to see it for the first time. It was very sad seeing it in place as it made everything seem so very real and final. I’m not ashamed to say that I shed a tear or two as I looked at it.
