A Special Day and Friday Oldie!

Good Morning One and All, end of another week again, going fast! I do hope you are well, but sending out positive thoughts to all who are struggling at the moment.

Thank you all so much for your kind comments on my last cards, I do appreciate it.
So what sort of Special Day is it? Well, it's our Wedding Anniversary 21 years ago we were married, and it's flown by so quickly. We didn't have official photographs, did it on on a shoestring budget, and my DIL at that time Karen was going to take the photos, but she had a disaster with colouring her hair, that morning when she arrived in Inverness, and she was devastated about it. When Damian arrived to collect me, he was all harassed and told me not to mention "hair" to Karen, when I got to the church I could see why, poor lass. Anyway the result was that not many photographs were taken, but here is one that isn't too bad;
Now here is the card I made for my lovely Alistair;
As were are always talking about going to learn to dance, and he has a thing about hats just now, I found this lovely Crafty Individuals stamp. The embossing folder is from CC as are the sentiment dies. Papermania paper and Pebeo silver gilding wax.  He loves it.

It's also Oldie day where we join Erika with sharing an older handmade creation. This is just for fun, it can be anything at all just needs to be handmade, here is mine;
A lovely House Mouse image, I'd forgotten that I had this one.
So why not join us in sharing one of your previous makes, it's good to look back and see how your style has changed.

We aren't doing much for our Anniversary as it's Alistair's birthday tomorrow and it's that we celebrate, as he's a child at heart.  In fact, getting married was what we did for his 50th birthday, when I asked him what he wanted he said lets get married, well I hadn't planned of anything on that scale, but there you go, so tomorrow when will be going out with Damian and Moreen for a birthday meal.

That's all for now folks, I'm a bit behind with my commenting, hopefully I can catch up.
Enjoy your day and take care of yourselves and see you soon,

Happy birthday for to your Hubby for tomorrow and I wish you both a wonderful weekend. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

Happy Belated Anniversary wishes. Surely enjoyed seeing that so-happy photo of you folks on the Big Day. What a handsome couple. Loved the silhouette dancers, and it was a perfect card for Action Man. Also loved the sweet fall HM, and beautiful coloring on that leaf. The outline leaf background paper was lovely with the main focal point. Hope you've been having some nice weather! TFS & Hugs

Sue said...

Congratulations to you and Alistair, hope you enjoyed your meal. Such a nice photo of you both Love your Anniversary card, just perfect, I'm sure he loved it. Please wish Alistair a very happy birthday. We woke up to a snow storm this morning! but it turned to sleet and rain later this afternoon. There is about half and inch of snow on the moor roads Brrr..... and more forecast on Tuesday. Take care and stay warm and cosy during this cold spell. Oh forgot to say I love the house mouse card too, love how you have coloured the leaf.
Hugs Jennifer xx.

Hi Kate,
Happy Anniversary to you both sorry it's a bit late.
A wonderful photo of you both on your wedding day.
I have been married for 33 years next month, and we too didn't have any photos as the person taking the photos said they didn't come out.
As in those days there were no digital cameras.
Wonderful cards, and very super designs too.
I bet your hubby loved the Anniversary one.
By the way Happy Birthday to Alistair also.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Sue said...

Well I am late for the party, but Happy Anniversary. Love the card you make, that stamp is wonderful! And of course you know I love the little mouse and leaf card, adorable. Great picture of the two of you on your wedding day too.
Congratulations on 21 years, best wishes for many more.
