Ruby Wedding Tag Card

Hello there Blog friends ..................I have 60 Followers now, I can hardly believe it, doing a wee Happy Dance here.    Welcome to my latest followers, thank you to all of you who have been so loyal since day one.  I would not be doing all this without your support and encouragement. 
I have to say that this has been an incredible journey into Blogland.   I have seen so many wonderful creations from so many talented people.  Everyone is out there sharing, helping and giving so much welcomed inspiration. 
A few of you will have noticed my sister Hazel is commenting on some Blogs.  I think she became interested when we were on Holiday in the sunshine back in September.  She had her iPad with her, when were relaxing in the room I would have a look at what you were all up to and of course would show her lots of your creations.  Once home I think she enjoyed browsing and having a look in.  Now that she is commenting all we have to do now is try to get her Blogging.  No point her asking me for help .......!!!!    I did tell her just to keep pressing buttons and she would manage to comment.   She has managed this far pressing buttons, some more button pressing might get a Blog up and running...........watch this space.

My card today is one I made for my friend Elaine and her Hubby.  Sunday was their 40th Wedding Anniversary.  They went off to the sunshine to celebrate, arriving home sometime this week.  For that I am grateful as I just did not have time over the past few days to get a card made for them.  I have not really done it Red, it is the same dark pink I used to make Hazel`s card for them.  Elaine does not like red so this is the next best thing that is not actually red!!!

Base card for Tag approx 7 x 4 Centura Pearl
Pink Pearl card stock
White card cut using Spellbinder Fancy Lattice Die
Roses made using Spellbinder Blossom Five Die
Foliage Spellbinder Dies
White tags cut using Tag from Spellbinder Antique Frames and Accents
American Seam Binding Bow and a red pearl .......there had to be a bit of red!!!

I now have to make a box for it, that will be tomorrows job unless there is the usual rubbish on the TV this evening.   I bought them Theatre Vouchers as their gift, the two things will go in the one box.

That`s it for today
The Rose Tutorial should hopefully be ready for Wednesday
Thank you for calling in I really appreciate you coming by to visit



  1. Beautiful card Patricia, I do like the lattice die for the background and the roses are wonderful. I'm sure your friends will love it and what a great gift of theatre tickets, I always feel it'd difficult to find appropriate gifts for couples who have been married for a wonderfully long time. Good for you, have a lovely day, kate x

  2. Hi Patricia, I think your friends will be delighted with this card and what a good idea to give theatre vouchers as a gift. It is so difficult to think of a different gift and you sure did. Hazel is progressing hope to see her joining blogland soon.
