21 Today!!

Ha ha no,not me.It’s been soooo long I can bearly remember it!LOL.It’s actually my DH and mine’s 21st Wedding Anniversary.Yes,on the 21st!And it’s on Digi Doodle Shop Challenges day!What better pressie could a girl (I use the term loosely) want.Well…apart from the pretty flowers and yummy chocs.

So on to the challenge for this week.We’re looking for your Clean and Simple cards/projects.To be in for the chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate for Digi Doodle Shop please visit the challenge site for full details.You don’t have to use a Digi Doodle Shop image but if you do your entry will count twice!Don’t forget to take a peek at the DT’s wonderful work!

Because I’m totally rubbish at lining stuff up to print off I used a template from My Verse Editor Plus by Crafty Ideas by Kaz to allow me to position this beautiful and graceful Swans image from Digi Doodle Shop  directly onto a watercolour card base.I wouldn’t do this for just anybody and I’m certain my DH won’t have a clue how privileged he is!I watercoloured with Distress Inks and once dry embossed a frame around it using  a score board.I took some vintage seam binding and squelched it around in some Distress Ink that I smooshed onto a glass mat then spritzed with water.I dried it off ,scewing it into a ball,with my hairdryer. I added the Circular Word Art which is a freebie at Digi Doodle Shop and matches the image perfectly.

Supplies :
Image : Swans from Digi Doodle Shop
Sentiment : Freebie Circular Word Art from Digi Doodle Shop
Medium : Distress Ink Pads
Tools : My Verse Editor Plus from Crafty Ideas by Kaz,X-Cut guillotine,Martha Stewart Score Board,Woodware 1″ circle punch

    Congrats on your anniversary Lisa, your card makes me feel all soppy and mushy when I look at it. The image you have chosen is just perfect for love … the colouring of those swans is just amazing.

    Please forgive my late comments hun, it was such a poorly household last week in our house. Love this CAS card so much!
    I couldn’t tie a bow that big and do something this eye catching and still have something CAS but you certainly have. WOW and WOW again! LOVE this!!! xx
