50th Wedding Anniversary

Hello All and thank you for popping by. Welcome Jacquie, Myra, Sandra, Cheryl, Hazel and Patricia. I think I've found your blogs, if I haven't huge apologies but I'm not very techy at the best of times, but I'll keep trying to find you. You all make me smile
So, todays post is a card and gift I made for my cousin. I was one of their bridesmaids!

The card was inspired by the great Sue Wilson and I just "dressed up" up the bottle of champagne - it was a good one I might add! Knowing that they'd probably get a few gifts of champagne and wanted mine to be a little different.

If anyone is going to Ally Pally on the Sunday I'd love to meet you. Wise words from Sandra too. Go armed with a shopping list AND the cost of the items you would normally pay elsewhere. I just hope that there will be stuff left! ideally I'd like toI to see CE card in real life. 

Square card blank - can't remember the size
Gold mirri card 
Black paper - to use with Patsy May Foil it machine

Sizzix die for sentiment

Have a great few days, see you Thursday
