Happy Anniversary!

Good morning- August has arrived- it will be a bit strange this year for those families that usually have an overseas holiday this month and are having to stay at home - but better safe than sorry, after the last 5 months we don't want to risk the virus getting a hold again. I'm hoping that the weather is kind to us- not too much of a hardship staying in the UK if the sun is shining.

This week's challenge theme at Sweet Stampin' is Wedding/ Anniversary, it's my crazy, but much loved sister's 25th Anniversary next week so I'm sharing something I made for her and lovely Trev. 
As it's their silver wedding celebration I was going to make them something elegant and sophisticated but somehow this happened! It's a fairly large (about A4 size) chipboard block thingy that stands up by itself. I 've painted it a pale silvery white and covered the front with silver glitter card. The cute gnomes are from Sheepski Designs, coloured with copics, then fussy cut. The daisies are Polkadoodles stamps, again coloured with copic then die cut. Butterflies, stamped and die cut, coloured with copics and Wink of Stella. Wooden letters painted pale blue The little banner is hand made. I'm going to stand this in a pot with a Rose bush. It was a lot of fun to make.

Thanks for stopping by- I'll be back very soon...
