"Golden Wedding Wishes"

Hello friends, hope you have had a good day.  Weather here was dull, cold and not very nice at all.  
Looks like I did not pack enough sunshine in my case to last more than a day.
When I arrived home at the house from my holiday late Friday evening I was greeted at the door by John.  I don`t think I was in the house 10mins when John asked would I make a card for Fiona and Gordon  good neighbours of John and Audrey`s.  It was their Golden Wedding, they were having a party in the Village Hall Saturday evening.   John and Audrey would take the card for us, they were going to the party with the boys.  I rushed to get the card done and finished yesterday.   When Audrey came along with the boys I told her I had rushed to get it ready.  Audrey just looked at me and said there really was not that much of a rush.  Guess why!! the couple were having a Garden Party in their very own garden and it was this afternoon................not a lot of difference......................MEN!!!

Here is my card, sorry the light has caught the right hand side
I normally would have made a far more elaborate card if I had had the time

Base card approx A5 cream card stock
Ivory Centura Pearl card embossed with Sue Wilson`s Heart Lattice Folder, matted onto dull gold card
I stamped the image three times on cream card stock and Heat embossed with Gold Powder
Matted that onto dull gold card and attached to the embossed panel
I used pale Gold/Brown organza ribbon round these panels and attached them to the base card
Tied a triple bow and attached that
Sentiment was computer generated mounted onto dull gold card and attached

A very quick card that I hope they will like.

I had been reading Sue`s Blog while away, I made a determined effort to get the hearts on the embossing folder up the right way.....!!!
That`s it for today
Thank you so much for stopping by.  I really appreciate that you take time to visit me.
Till next time

  1. Love your card big Sis, and you have got the hearts up the right way, and that ribbon looks great again, glad I asked if you could use it as it would have just been left the drawer. Like you I didn't pack enough sun shine either.

  8. Morning Patricia, Glad you and Hazel enjoyed your holiday, hopefully you are both feeling re-charged and refreshed.
    Your card is beautiful, albeit quickly made, they will absolutely love it. Men, eh !! ha ha.
    I saw your post on Jenny's Blog about the Ebosser, I have one and I absolutely love it, I got mine from Oysters but when I was in The Range last week, they had them for £149, the lowest I have seen them. I use mine all the time now, I absolutely love it. I always use the magnetic sheet (provided) when using Spellbinders dies, and unfortunately in my haste one day, I put the die upside down and it was a border die, so now I have a lovely border down one side of the magnetic sheet ha ha, I am still using it though. Hopefully if you get one, you will love it too.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  9. A lovely card despite the rush Patricia. Typical men! I remember John doing something similar. He asked me to make a baby card for friends of his who just had a new grand bay. It was a girl - or it might have been a boy, he said. You just have to laugh don't you? Love from Christine xx

  10. Love your card Patricia, gorgeous stamping and love the bow. I like that embossing folder, it makes such a classic background. Sorry had to laugh, we never have enough toys to play with. My car is off the drive first thing this morning as the delivery of joists is coming this morning or afternoon (I would have written it down, lol) Have a fun day. xx Flora

  14. Good morning Patricia. What a lovely sophisticated card. I must get me one of those folders but they are as rare as rocking horse poo at the moment.
    Mrs Confucious say "never give a man a message if you want it to be passed on correctly!"
    Is that a Clarity stamp or am I thinking of the wrong thing? x
