Anniversary Card

Hello friends..........I am sorry for my absence over the last few weeks but I have been on holiday in Italy, which was stunning, if a little hot !!! (over 35 degrees) I hope you are all well and, if you live in the UK, that you are enjoying the sunshine. Can I also welcome my newest followers, its so kind of you to join me here at CNCT.

Just a little  6 by 6 kraft card to share with you, using Tim Holtz Wallpaper Stash Pad and some of Tim's stamps, Idea-ology, Distress and Archival Inks as well as Eclectic Elements fabric remnants.

As always thank you so much for dropping in and leaving a kind comment. Its my plan to catch up with many of you later this afternoon/evening.

Can I also share with you that after more than two years blogging/emailing/phone calls and gifts, my mum
( Rita of RMG Creations and Redanne of bollyanne blogspot) finally met up with one another.  Having met with Anne last November I knew how keen she was to meet mum, so it was quite an emotional get together and they got on like a house on fire. I also shared a few hours with Anne and her husband and it was wonderful to catch up.

    A wonderful card and I so like the touches such as the fabric.
    How amazing that Rita and Anne met, finally. A special time for them both to create warm memories in their time together and lovely that you also had the chance to spend time during Anne's visit.

  18. Your anniversary card is stunning, Annie!! I saw your mum's write-up and photos about Annie (as I call her) and David's visit and it brought a tear of joy to my eyes! This is a wonderful crafting community covering the whole globe and it's so heartwarming when bloggie friends get to meet IRL!! Hugs, Darnell
