Special Moments

Happy Saturday my friends…  First I’d like to say thank you to some special ladies who’ve been a great help to me in the last few days. Pam is always so kind to answer any questions I have … It ALWAYS costs me money because my questions are mostly “WHERE DID YOU GET THAT” ???  She tells me & then my checkbook takes another hit !!! She can’t help it if she makes the cutest cards & I just HAVE to have what she has … Which then makes my friends here want to have it … We’re just helping the economy, right girls !!! Then there’s Patti Jo, she makes the most beautiful paper flowers & was kind enough to not only tell me how to make them she also sent me a card with those beautiful flowers on it so I could see them up close … Also included the same paper & some little sticks used for curling the paper petals so I could make my own .. So please check out the wonderful blogs these ladies have & you’ll be glad you did. I have several more amazing ladies to thank but will do that on my next post.
Today I’ve made a simple Anniversary card using only black & white ….

I used a Spellbinders Lotus die on the front & again on the inside for the sentiment … When I cut it out the negative was so pretty I decided to use it for the opposite side … I made several flowers from  punches & attached to the centers of the die.
I took a picture outside so you could see how I embossed the front with my wonderful Scor-Buddy … Love that handy little tool.
No coloring on this just simple basic black & white …
Supplies used :
Black & white cardstock from Stampin Up
DP is Diecuts with a view
Punches, Nellie Snellen & EK Success flowers
Spellbinders Lotus die
Cuttlebug for embossed black flower
Front sentiment is from Great Impressions & Happy Anniversary is from PTI …
Thanks for stopping by & if you like leave a comment so I’ll know you were here …
