One for the Hubbie...

Hello Peeps

Sorry I have not been around much the last week or so,  Hubby and  I went away for a short holibob and I have come back to a whirligig of Nativity Plays and appointments and things....Busy busy!

You remember I told you that I found some old photos of projects I have not shared?  Well this is one of them....

It is my Anniversary card for Hubby a little while ago....


Very plain and simple but he liked it.  It does what is says on the tin!!  

I took two bits of cream cardstock out of my Snippets drawer...yep, cream and white card goes in a drawer!!!!  I die cut them using a Sizzix die then taking my Stampin Up embossing folder that I was forced, yes forced to buy, and I ran one of the hearts through it, before layering them, punching holes with my faithful crop a dile and then stringing some Maya Road string round the card.  My little stamp with WV Potting Soil before attaching this piece of card onto the card base.

I am off to the Snippets Playground with this.  I understand the dress rehearsal for the Natitty Play is on Friday afternoon so I hope to see you all there in your costumes.  My Mum has washed some tea towels up ready, just gotta iron them but not before the day or they will get creased!!  Does anyone know if Parsnip and Fergus have got parts yet?  

Thanks for popping over.

Parsnip is Baby Jesus. I have an opening for a sheep dog. The last one was barking! Please do not iron creases into your tea towels. Hugs Mrs A.

Your card is lovely Hettie. My hubby would like this too. See you in the playground tomorrow. Mrs. A said I could be a sheep so I hope she can keep that dog under control. Barbxx

Brilliant LIM/CAS card, looks white on my dashboard but still looks great. lovely card.
Was going to tell you that I had not heard about Parsnip or Fergus but I see Mrs A has confirmed Parsnip as the Baby Jesus and looks like Fergus, could be a sheepdog, hope he doesn't bark too much.
See you 4 p.m. sharp tomorrow!

It's 10 to 4 Sam - I need to hobble over and peek out of the bedroom window to see the shenanigans! Parsnip is already outside in the Playground, waiting for you all :)

I just LOVE this card - stylish elegance indeed.

Gorgeous... simplicity is really my favourite thing (for all my layered creations my preferred living mode is simplicity - just check my Pinterest board for How I want to live if you don't believe me!) - and this is a beautiful example of why. It's just lovely.

Such a precious card. Love the twine and Kraft and white are one of my favorite combos! You are right about meeting very few autumns. Most are younger than me. :) hugs, Autumn
