Therapy - card making!

I've just finished making a special card for hubby for our Ruby Wedding Anniversary which we're celebrating next week. Decided to make a wordbook type of card because I wanted to include a couple of old photos of our wedding. Only black and white photos but I think the effect is quite good. Just hope he likes it when I give it to him and cheers us both up as we've had rather a rough time recently (though not domestically!) Think we might be making some life changing decisions in the not too distant future.

With a wedding in the offing, my creative thoughts have obviously been turning towards wedding cards. I downloaded another great svg cut file from the very talented Penny Duncan (see sidebar for link) and took inspiration from another crafter on her Artsite blog and came up with these. It's going to be fun playing with designs before I decide on a VERY special card for Libbie and Stuart's wedding next year.
Then while I was in 'creating mode' I made a few more cards (some of which I did before I even got dressed this morning!)A different style from my usual cards but it does you good to step outside your comfort zone occasionally doesn't it?
