When my friend Natalie saw the card that I had made for her parents Golden Wedding Anniversary she said that any she bought for them wouldn't be as nice as that one (she's very kind, although working in a card shop I know that there are some very nice ones available!!!) So, she asked me to make one for her to give to them. This posed a problem as I had pretty much exhausted all my ideas for a golden wedding card already! However, Natalie provided a black and white photo of the wedding day all those years ago, and I ended up making an A4 size card as when I reduced the size of the photo the quality was pants. I wanted it to end up a bit like a scrapbook page ...
I am delighted to report that Natalie loved it, and more importantly, so did her parents!!!
I stole a little bit of time in my Crafty Corner this afternoon, but nothing much to show, as I was doing yet more prep work for my Christmas/December Journal. I am determined to finish this journal after all the hours already invested, BUT the December rota for work has yet to be posted ... I know what I am going to do for December 1st, and Phil went up into the loft/attic this afternoon and retrieved our advent calendars so that not only can we fill them up but I (or Alex) can photograph them in readiness for my first journal page!!! How exciting!
