Last week didn't turn out quite as planned, though when does life ever follow the script?
Phil ended up working the Saturday through to Tuesday, but we made the most of the rest of the week.
We had lunches out, did some gift shopping, got some jobs done at home etc, nothing too exciting but we enjoyed the time spent together.
There wasn't much time left to play in my craft room but I did get a bit of colouring done...now if only I can find the time to make it into something!
I did make one very simple card...
White cards are so difficult to photograph - It's lovely and sparkly in real life!!
I wanted something simple but classy for this occasion, and so lacking any imagination myself, I totally cased the card from THIS talented lady, after spying the card on Pinterest, and having one of those light bulb moments..yes, I have those stamps, so let's use them!
I took the advice of my wonderful Facebook friends and bought pale grey ink, and stamped it off on scrap paper first to achieve a lighter shade (thank you Dena!)
The stamps are Stampin' Up Hearts A Flutter, the sentiment was computer generated as I was seriously running out of time, and the crystals are Swarovski.
The card is of course for my Mum and Dad, who despite having 3 horrible children, have managed to stay married for 60 years!
I did buy them a card which I posted so they would have it today, and made this one to take over on Saturday when we are all going out for a family meal.
I will try to remember to take some photos of the occasion, I forget in all the excitement.
Happy Anniversary Mum and Dad ♥
Thanks for looking.
