My lovely Blogger followers!

I hope you are all enjoying this weekend so far. My brother and his wife and son, William, are visiting at the moment from Hong Kong. We spent today bowling with them and the rest of my immediate family up at the Trocodero in London. I haven't bowled for over 15 years but I wasn't too bad, thank goodness!

Onto the card! My friend asked me to make a card for her husband for their wedding anniversary coming up. I thought the Kraftin' Kimmie Vivienne would be perfect - she looks just like my friend! I haven't completed the inside yet but it will probably be along the lines of "Happy Anniversary. Can I tempt you for at least another year?" - love it! And luckily the challenge over at Kraftin Kimmie today is a card for a boy/guy- it's like I planned it!

Hey, look at that bow! Impressive huh?! I'd like to say it was down to my bow tying skills, but it just happened without any faffing around with it! I love it when a plan comes together....

Papers/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Core'dinations Gemstones cardstock
Stamps: Kraftin' Kimmie Vivienne, CC Designs sentiment, Hero Arts background flourish stamp
Copic Ciaos, Glamour Dust
Accents: ribbon from stash, pewter flat backed pearls

Tools: inverted corner punch, Martha Stewart border punch
