 Happy Wednesday everyone and an especially happy day to Annie and her hubby for their wedding anniversary. Below is the little card that I made for them. 
I used snippets of vintage embroidered linen, lace, buttons and beads.

It doesn't seem long since their happy wedding day when my little one was toddling round in a little smocked dress and pink coat. This week that little one will be a beautiful bride herself - where have all those years gone?!

As you see, my table - above - is back to normal and my lace box is overflowing onto it.
I have been making little card toppers or maybe ATCs using snippets.
I have a spare day next week so I will try and make a little bundle of ATCs ready for the WOYWW 4th anniversary swap. Follow this link for Julia's info.

OK folks - busy week this week so I will dash.
I might not get round all your desks this week but will do my best.

If you are following my Friday Pheasant saga - pop back next Friday for the follow up - it's amazing!!!
Thanks for calling.
x Jo

BumbleVee said...

ohhh look at all the goodies... and look at the goodies you are making with those goodies.... it's come full circle.

I'm using the ones you sent me to put together my blocks for the class...working on my third one now...embroidering and using techniques as I learn them. Today I tried my hand at some cutwork.Had to watch the video about 10 times to get it, but now that I did my first ...I think I can do some others a bit easier..

Your beautiful journal cover is actually much like what we are trying to accomplish..

Tertia said...

That card is just gorgeous! The ATC's are fantastic too.
