When you make a conscious choice to be happy, no one can take it away from you because no one gave it to you: you gave it to yourself.

Some Odd Girl Anniversary card

Hello Monday morning, well what's left of it!

I confess I'm not so good today so I stayed in bed and slept for a couple of extra hours, hopefully that extra sleep will allow me to finish off my latest Bristol Rovers article after lunch.

Today I want to share with you an Anniversary card I've made for my friend and her husband.  I used Some Odd Girls digital stamps 1920's Gwen & Kody -

For once, because I usually forget to do so, I chose my paper first & I used this gorgeous door design from BoBunny's Timepiece collection 6 x 6 paper pad. I simply matted & layered it with some white and navy card.  The card base is an elegant edged 8 x 8 card blank by Craftwork cards.  The sentiment is from my stash I've had for years!

This fab couple are actually separate digital stamps so I took them into my Serif Craft Artist Pro 2 and positioned them together, slightly overlapping Gwen to make them look more of a couple who perhaps are out for a stroll or maybe they're going in through that door! 

I coloured them with Copics and enjoyed colouring this style of clothes - what fun!

Hope you like it, let me know what you think!
Take care Zo xx

Hi Zoe, sorry to read you have been poorly - hope you're feeling a bit better today. Asthma's troubling me today so I'm keeping out of the cold and upping the steroids as prescribed ... hopefully, it will blow over in a day or two. In the meantime, when I feel up to it, I'm deep into sorting and organising in the craft space ... too much stuff getting out of control, and I do like to be in control :)

Your card is terrific - that's a neat bit of manipulation you've done in Serif, you would never know that they began as two separate digis I see Gwen has ankles just like mine :))

Hope you got the article completed in time too. Take care and rest up as much as possible. Elizabeth xx
