Golden Anniversary


I went to youngest Grandson's Christingle service this morning which is held at the school church.
It is always so lovely to see all their bright little faces so serious when their candles are lit while they sang one chorus of 'Shine Little Light of Mine'.
The occasion certainly lit up a very dreary morning.

This card is for an anniversary this weekend.
It is very much like the 30th anniversary card I made recently but with different layout and BP

Challenges ;
Our Creative Corner SASSC43 - a lovely sketch which I have rotated

Crazy for Challenges - use punches

Simon Says - So charming!

The little padlock charm

This is just so beautiful and elegant Irene I love the image and that little charm is just the perfect finishing touch. I am so glad you enjoyed the Christingle I remember when I used to go and see my little one at school in the play...awesome feeling isn't it.

Such a gorgeous card and so elegant too.
You guessed correctly that the aperture that I cut on my 'Bride' card was cut in two passes through the Cuttlebug.

Now Irene you already know that I adore it when you make this style of card, they are always so elegant and this one is certainly no exception.
Why can't I ever find these wonderful images that you use? My poor PC is groaning under the weight of all the images it holds for me, and yet you always manage to come up with the perfect one that I don't have lol!
