Good Morning, is it morning? (as i look at the clock) oh so it is.
lovely morning here this morning, very autumny - if that is a word? sky is bright but the brown, orange and red leaves are on the ground. I love this season, specially at night when your snuggled on the couch with the lights low and candles on (Yankee Candles) of course. Not that i have many nights like that just now s my crafting mojo seems to come to light about 3pm and is there till late at night. Seeing i have the mojo then i just work with it.
Franco's cafe in Carnoustie who sell my cards - Well a customer of theirs asked for an Anniversary card for their husband. Now alot of crafters say they find it hard to make cards for males, i dont. Maybe its cause i am a male but this card stumped me. How do i make an anniversary card for a man. No lovely dovey stuff, no reds, no pinks, no hearts, no bling non of that. so i scrolled the web for a lovely wee verse that i could use that would be suitable and then built it from there. Using browns, ivories, creams and tans i came up with this. using card candi in place of the gems and used a rosette that is always suitable for men - depending on the colour of course. I came up with this card, which she was very pleased with, so i was told anyway as i never actually seen her. Products i used are as followed;
