7 years ago.....

......................I became Mrs. Gale, and every year I end up making a card the night before our anniversary and this year was no exception ( why do I do this? I had 364 days to get it ready why did I ended up staying up till 12.30 am to get it finished??) Oh well, never mind is how things work. I also needed to make a male card so did those both last night as well as my project for UStamp. For Mr Gale's anniversary card I have used The level 3 hostess set Window Dressing ( WOW you need to spend big bucks to get this level which is a shame ) but I loved working with it, so cute and you can do so much with it. Colour scheme is Old Olive, Ruby Red, some chocolate chip wide double stitched ribbon. I have coloured my window using markers and ink pads and I have used a reverse image stamp to make two birds facing each other ( all together now...Awww!!!). A stamp from the Pocket Silhouettes was used to add the leaves behind the window( I wanted the greenery to be like a house plant trailing, but ended up like a tree !!!???/!!) The sentiment was perfect and it reflects how I feel about my hubby, I am a very lucky girl indeed .























For the next card I ve used the star from the Fun and fast notes set , basic phrases to spell Birthday Wishes, Short Order Alphabet was used to spell son and a frame form the * Frames with a Flourish was used to keep it all together, that s why I love having a big collection of stamps you can mix and match to suit you. A couple more stars from the Perfect presents set and job done, hope my customer will like it.




















Colours used Really Rust, Choc. Chip, Brocade Blue, linen thread, really rust button and can you see what I did to the white stitching on the ribbon? I ve dyed it to match my star with a Bashful Blue marker. Hugs M xx

I like the Birthday greeting for a son! It is so difficult to come up with ideas that are for males!
