A Bit of a Cutie

It's my Mum and Dad's wedding anniverasary at the end of this week, and so a card is needed. I looked at my skulls and zombies, but came up with this instead.



All the stamps are by Alice Palace for Crafty Individuals, and the backgrounds are made with Distress Ink and Distress Oxides. I only have four colours at the moment, and here they are.

Spiced Marmalade...
Worn Lipstick...

Broken China...

and Cracked Pistachio.


I know it's a bit mushy, but 58 years deserves a medal mushy card.
The Happy Anniversary has been typed on my old typewriter, and it's quite small - that'll get 'em reaching for their reading glasses mwhahahaha..... should have bought me a pony when I was little ;-)

I'm joining in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge, which happens to be these colours. How lucky is that, and also the Craft Stamper Anything Goes challenge.

Thanks very much for looking, and have a fun day xx

  10. Ahh, there's nothing wrong with a little mush now and then (and I can't think of a much better occasion for it), especially when it's as sweet and gentle as the Alice Palace stamps. Absolutely charming, and I bet your Mum and Dad love it.
