This is my celebration card for my anniversary with my hubby. We have been together a total of 6 young years and it has been fun and we also needed the angels with all that has happened from my mom getting dementia to Michael now needing full shoulder replacement surgery due to his rheumatoid arthritis. I thought angels were a good choice. I created the backgound in sponging different blues on glossy white. I stamped the image in black and embossed it in black sparkle powder. I had these new leaves and stars which I added to opposite ends and added silver stickers and mounted it on glossy blue cardstock. Blue is my Favourite colour. Anything goes at Whimsy and Make It Monday so I entered them here as well. Everyone have a great day!

I can not believe we are already in September! At CCAYR their theme was presents and also similar was 52 Christmas cards throwdown. They actually show a beautiful picture of gifts. Christmas comes early at Anything Goes and I always try to recycle something and I hope we will have snow this coming year:) I also always love sparkles so it is on almost every card in some form. One of these had a quilty theme a while back so the first card was using that image and I had a present sticker and I used glitter to fill in the gift. I used an old ribbon and mounted the cardstock on top of the ribbon. I finished it with gold stickers and a Merry Christmas. The second Picture I recycled the stickers from the present to make a 2nd gift card. I coloured it and mounted it on shiny paper I had lying around. The 3rd card I used perfect powders and used a present stamp to make the background and then used several layers of paper I had, again, laying around and mounted the Christmas stamp that I also used the powders on to make a more manly card. My Mr. Penguin for the 4th card is done in purples. I had used powders for the background and then placed the penguin on top of that. I used silver cardstock, purple cardstock and an old ribbon I have had for ages and made a very sad looking bow to finish it off. My last card shows some snow. I used the cuddlebug and the snowflake design for the background. I took some very shiny sparkly cardstock and mounted the penguins on top and finished it off with some snowflakes(I got these new) and crystals.
