Sizzling September

Well, not quite but it is warmer than I was expecting! And most unusual for a school holiday..... 

The boys and I were out this morning for our annual Dedication of the Uniformed Organisations service at church and then went straight (well, almost straight) from that to rugby with Scott and then we went straight from there to the shops. So I think a wee sit down now is called for!

Andy text me the other day from work as someone in his work had asked him if I'd be able to make an anniversary card for Thursday for her husband.  I had seen this gorgeous Tiddly Inks image and lots of beautiful cards made with it over on the Tiddly Inks Facebook group so decided that I would *have* to get it... I'm sure there's other images I could have gone for but I liked this one :) 

The first photo isn't the best. I finished making the card late Wednesday night so I took the photo early on Thursday morning before Andy took it to work. I love it though, I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

It's gorgeous, Susan - it's one of my fave Tiddlies and you've really done it justice here. I've got a half-finished one on the go at the moment so you've spurred me on to get it sorted! Hugs, Tracey xx

Hi Susan, love, love, love that Tiddlie image! I don't have it, as don't do that many wedding cards, but I'd buy it in a shot if I had an excuse!!

Love your card as well, beautifully coloured and very elegant.
