So apologies for being M.I.A. this last week, what can I say, life happens and I wasn’t able to get anywhere near my craft room, and I didn’t even have time to find an old card to blog about, but here I am hoping to get back on track. I am also a few days late for the Crazy4Challenges challenge this week. I am going to add my card anyway as I have just finished making it. This weeks challenge was to incorporate music into the card. I needed to make an anniversary card so I decided to incorporate the Lyrics to the song “I’ll Always Be Right There” as this was the song that was played for the happy couples first dance.
The weekend has rolled around again so that means another Crazy 4 Challenges challenge. This weeks challenge is called “Cut up Stamping”, this means that after you stamp an image or a background you cut out a section of the image. Most of the examples that I have seen usually it is a strip that is cut out, but you can try cutting it anyway that works for you. I watched a Jennifer McGuire video months ago so I was kind of working off some tips that she suggested in that video. In a lot of the samples I have seen the images tended to be floral, I wanted to do something different so I opted to do some autumn trees, this is an anniversary card for a couple that I am very close to that has an autumn anniversary (and they don’t go on the internet EVER (besides Netflix)so it is safe to post. (if you are reading this and can guess who this couple is DON’T tell them about this card 😀)

This card was fun to make but a little on the tricky side (both chairs have to line up perfectly or the card won’t close). But I was determined to make his and her chairs with his and hers drinks. In the end, it came out like I planned and my sister and her hubby got a real kick out of their card.
WOW, how’s that for a title. This is another card that I made for a friend to give to her parents for their anniversary. I know some of the panels seem a little random but I will try my best to explain. The mountain scene is a reference to their Honey Moon in the mountains, the little house with the birdhouses is something that the happy couple has in their yard. They work together to make and hang these pretty little birdhouses all over their little garden shed. The last picture is the happy couple just sitting and enjoying each others company. The blank pages are for their children, and their families to sign. This card has already been given and it is my understanding that they quite enjoyed it.
