Anniversary Card

 Hi everyone...I've been playing with some new Quatro D kits from Toni Darroch (Stamps By Me). It was my very first attempt at using stencils that made up the image and then stamping and then die cutting the image then putting the image in an embossing folder. I know you probably will have done this before LOL but I was rather excited to use a new product.

I've made this anniversary card for my wonderful neighbours next door..we have got on like a house on fire ever since they moved in next to us 10 years ago...but sadly they are both seriously ill..Ted has dementia and Brenda has cancer..to say we are both devastated is an understatement to see them both deteriorate after both being so lively and energetic. Brenda and I both love our gardens and when we bought new plants we always bought each other one...we all did so much for each other it's so terribly sad.

The sad news about the Queen passing she did so much for this country and beyond and will be greatly missed.

Take care and lots of huggles xxxxxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Love the idea of stamping colouring and embossing that gorgeous spray of flowers.
Your colouring is fantastic also.
Love the blue ink used and the spatters.
So sorry to hear about your neighbours not nice to see good friends deteriorate so when you have seen them so healthy before.
