Anniversary Waltz

Good morning to you all from a very wet and rainy Blackpool this Monday morning.  Hope you all had a fabulous weekend whatever you did.  We had a fantastic time at my friend's party - what a shindig!  I have a picture to show you at the end of my post.

Today sees the start of a brand new challenge at Lexi's Creations and the theme this fortnight is Anniversary.  I decided to do a white on white card:

Always difficult to photo so I did it against a green background so it didn't merge in with the white background.  I have used Lexi's sentiment called Husband and Wife which you can get at Fairy Dust Crafts.  I embossed the back panel with a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder and used the following dies:

Spellbinders Love Locket and Rose Creations
Dienamics Mini Royal Roses and Rolled Daisy
Joycraft Corner
Marianne Creatables Flourish above and below sentiment
Cheery Lynn Anastasia Border and Exotic Butterfly Small 2
Tonic Flower Punch and Floral Leaf Punch

It does look a lot better IRL I find all white cards very difficult to photo with my limited photographic skills! Our Sponsor this week is none other than

Challenges I would like to enter:

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
ABC - Monochrome
Crafty Boots - Die Cuts
Creative Creations - Monochromatic
Love to Scrap - Monochrome
That Craft Place - Monochrome

Whilst I am here I need to tell you about a few things:

Crafty Sentiments have some new dies in store and a new look:

Maggie's party was brilliant we had such a fabulous time!  This is what greeted you when you went into the first marquee:

Its an ice luge her husband had done for her.  She is one of my annual trip to Las Vegas buddies so he had it done in the shape of the Las Vegas sign.  It is all ice and you pour champagne down the back and it flows down the channels at the side into your mouth!! 

Have a fabulous day and thank you so much for popping round to see me! Take care xx
