Second 60th Wedding Anniversary Card

Thank you one and all for continuing to comment on my posts.  It is wonderful to see that I can please many people with my creations, you have been the mainstay for me continuing to post as sometimes I look and wonder if my cards are up to the standards set by others.

Brrrrrr it is getting colder up here, had the heating on yesterday, my poor wee fingers were so cold I could not cut paper but the heating soon remedied that.  I have been trying to make a few cards other the past few days.  I bought some new dies from Tattered Lace, the dandelion and the shoe.  As is normal for me I cut a few using different paper and card just to see how they perform and no problems encountered.  Now all I need is inspiration to pull it all together and that is what I lack at the moment, inspiration.  It will come though once I settle down and think.

Here is the second card I made for my Brother in Law to give for a 60th Wedding Anniversary.

8 x 8 card
Lilac, White and glitter card from Stock
Spellbinders Grand Decorative Labels One
Cricut Mini to cut out 60th
Tattered Lace Sentiment die to cut Happy Wedding Anniversary and Congratulations sentiments
Spellbinders Rose Creation Die
Feather,  Deep Lilac Rose, ribbon and gems from stock
Box from Stella Crafts (Lazy way I know but time was short)
Now that the personal cards are out of the way, ( Oh forgot to say I passed the card I gave to Lana and Scott before I photographed it but it is on the same lines as the Peach and Ivory 60th Wedding Anniversary card I made for my Brother in Law), I hopefully can get back on track.  Not too long for Christmas and I have had enquiries as to when my "special" Christmas cards will be ready.  Well you know what that means more boxed cards.  I want to do flat cards for a change but I have forgotten how to do them now.
I am off now to search out my box with Christmas embellishments, sentiments, glitter and bits and bobs.  I also bought Chloe's Wreath Stamp to try, not very good at stamping, but thought I could give it a go as it is a big stamp and I may get away with it if it is not quite right.  Who am I kidding, get it right girl.
Before I start I must get round to commenting on your wonderful post, been sadly lacking in that department and must return the compliment  as you have taken time to comment on my posts.
So take care you all.
