After I gave my colleague the butterfly car card, her friend asked me if I could make a card for her parent's 60th wedding anniversary.  She wants the card for tomorrow so i didn't have a great deal of time to think about it.  

When I came home from work tonight I discovered a parcel containing goodies I almost forgot I had ordered.  These were Joanna Sheen silhouette stamps which were mispriced on Create and Craft about a fortnight ago.   So I ordered all 6 packs which were supposed to be £9.99 each, but were, in fact £4.49 each.   And included in this little collection were a couple of stamps which could be suitable for the card I needed to make.   Including the Happy Anniversary text stamp.

And here 'tis

It would have been portrait, but I misinked so had to cover it up.

Bedtime now



  1. Beautiful card, I love the image and well done on getting a bargain :-) x

  2. smashing card and what a super purchase you got as they look like lovely stamps.


Some stuff about the stuff in the blog


Very new at this blogging lark, so forgive me if I get a bit befuddled. User name is derived from my maiden name of George and the fact that by the time the Olympics are held in the UK in 2012, I will look as if I could compete. And not as a sumo wrestler.

For starters there is only one blog with contain my thoughts, but this might evolve into 3 or 4 when I work out what I'm doing.

In the main it will cover my slimming journey, my quilting exploits, my get fit and stay fit campaign, and my photography. Not forgetting my recent TrollBead obsession.

Should I ever get a lovelife you might get glimpses of that as well.
