Hi Everybody and a very warm welcome to my new followers.  My cards today were made for friends.  The first one is for a Wedding Anniversary and the second one is for a birthday.   The first I made with a spellbinders lattice die and cut the frame with spellbinders square dies -  a very simple card.  I put some patterned paper behind the lattice and finished with a bow and a few baby's breath flowers.                                                    
                                                           


                                                             

The second card is made with a Sue Wilson die.  I cut the back in a pink card and then cut it down the middle and offset it from the top layer.  I covered the split with a piece of ribbon and decorated with a few flowers.  Again a very simple card as unfortunately time always seems to be in short supply.
                                                                   

                                                                       

Thank you for taking a look.

Now that Anniversary card is just stunning. My in-laws are having their 50th next month and I'll be casing your blog to find a gorgeous idea for them and the birthday card is just wonderful.
Thank you so much for your messages the other day. I have been having the same problem with a few blogs on my sidebar too. I know it's a blogger glitch. Hopefully it works itself out soon!
hugs to you,

Marie Louise these are both stunning and elegant. I love how you use the dies on your cards. Thanks for stopping by and for your kind words on the loss of my mum xxx

Hi Marie-Louise. I think your cards are great. They are not over fussy and I think knowing where to stop is an important artistic talent. Incidentally, there is a park some 2 miles from me in Didsbury called Marie-Louise Gardens. Nice to be recognised, isn't it?
