Night of Navy means Happy First Anniversary

hi all

well, with the clutter still on my desk from my last foray into the happy world that is Stampin' up! I was able to 'CASE' my own last card as an idea for an anniversary one for a  colleague - I guess that is permissible!

(you will be spared the 'what's on my desk, Wednesday ' chaos - er sorry,  artistic arrangement - I would be far too embarrassed to preserve said mess for posterity!)

but back to the card ..It just so happens the wedding colours in question had included a dark blue so Stampin' Up!'s Night of Navy was just perfect.

I opted for just a  simple matted layer of Very Vanilla stamped with a mix of of toning Flower Shop and Petite Petals - and a sprinkling of my beloved,  must have, Gorgeous Grunge background.

Although I have used a retired stamp for the banner-like sentiment, of course anything will work. I  hand-cut it with Stampin' Up!'s super sharp paper snips and finished it off with a bit more sponging and a little toning candy dot to indicate it is their first anniversary.. and here's to many more of them!

This week at work we have been starting our countdown to preparation for the various projects which we will be running over the  Christmas and New year holidays. This has certainly focused me somewhat with essentially realising I only have just a few weekends left for shopping and even less for my Christmas makes.. 

with that rather worrying thought  - well to me at least..- will leave you til next time.
very best wishes

  1. I'm having much the same worrying thoughts about Christmas creeping up behind me Jan! I'm sure we'll get there in the end! I just love your navy and white card with those stunning layered flowers - and can I just say that I really like the subtle touches of Gorgeous Grunge in the background too. Just gorgeous! Vicky x
    PS You REALLY wouldn't want to see my desk today!


Thanks very much, everyone. I so much appreciate them all.
