It was my Sister in Law's wedding anniversary yesterday, so a very Happy First Wedding Anniversary to Sarah and Paul! I wanted to make something that incorporated paper for their first anniversary as tradition states that is the gift to give! Therefore I made a card, and decorated some blank MDF letters that I brought at the NEC craft show the other week, I used some mulberry paper flowers on those, thinking that counts as paper, right?! I used the colour scheme they had for their wedding last year too. I painted the letters with Annie Sloan chalk paint, then sanded the edges to give a distressed look. I then used some small background stamps and Tim Holtz distress ink to add some texture and depth to the background, not sure this shows up in the photos! I used another rosette on my card, told ya I was loving those at the moment ;) I love that sentiment on the card, one of my favourite quotes, I used this on our engagement announcements back in 2007, so I was happy to find a Papertry Ink stamp set with it included. The Out on a Limb set is my all time favourite quote set!
I really enjoyed making these and I'm so pleased I brought a K and A for us too, really looking forward to decorating them! I also brought a small blank tray, pen pot and a little house shaped shelf unit. Really love altering items and making home decoration projects. I have so many ideas for projects that I can display to add a personal creative touch to our home.
I really hope that you are having a lovely weekend. Happy Easter! Wishing you all many blessings. We are having a lovely weekend seeing our family.
