Two Word Sentiment

Hello! How is everyone?

It's my wedding anniversary today! My lovely husbandshape has put up with me for 4 years, all my little quirks and the backing from double sided tape and an air that seems permanently glittery floating through the house, and I am very appreciative! We also made an incredibly cute baby, who has just turned 9 months old!

Anyway, it is time for another challenge at Aud Sentiments!

This one is eeeeeasy, too - just use a two word sentiment on your card. Break out those happy birthdays, roll out those Merry Christmasses, and make us a card!

We are sponsored by the lovely Delicious Doodles, who provided me with A Scottish Castle (the image, not the building, dang) to play with.

Here is my card:

Here's how it was made.

Living in Scotland is pretty awesome. I live in Glasgow, a big city which has loads to do, but if you drive for a mere ten fifteen minutes any direction out of the city you come across the most amazing landscapes. One of my early favourite dates with the hubs was a walk through a place called Clachan of Campsie, with a little waterfall, gorgeous plants and a tiny church retreat centre next door called Schoenstatt. You should google it - it's gorgeous!

So I printed my image and used prismacolour pencils and cheapy pencils to try to capture the gorgeous scottish skies. I hope I managed.

Then it was matted and layered on my card just kept really plain. The only other thing was to put some navy blue gems around the sentiment.

I hope you like it!

P.s. for anyone who has been collecting my free sentiments over at the blog, WAIT til you see next week's! I think you will like!

A sentiment for a guy

It's nearly Father's Day so my lovely hubby will be receiving his first card from Chael! I remember buying him a picture frame that said Daddy and Me a whole year ago while we were pregnant - where does the time go?!

Over at Aud Sentiments we have a great challenge sponsored by the brilliant Bugaboo Stamps, and we also have two free sentiments from meeeeeee. Go ahead, sneak over and steal them.

Here is my creation:

I hope you like it!

I decided not to colour the image but to crop it in my circle instead. The details include paper flags, stitching and some stars! I hope rock star daddy likes it.
