Divas by Design - 'Weddings & Anniversaries'

Hello... I hope you are all well today... it's Team A's turn for a new challenge over at 

and the fab theme this week is

'Weddings & Anniversaries'

I thought I would use a LOTV Topper from the Coloured Art Pad - True Love. These images are perfect for Weddings and Anniversaries. I've gone with a white and silver colour combo to give it a classy and elegant feel... I'm quite pleased with how this card came out considering I didn't really feel in the mood for crafting when I made it.

Image: LOTV - Coloured Art Pad - True Love
Sentiment: LOTV - Sketch Pad 8 - Sentiments
Embossing Folder: Sizzix - Flower Rings & Clusters Set
Flower: Prima
Die: Memory Box - Precious Hearts
Punch: Tonic Studios Simplicity Geared - Vine
from Stash: Silver Mirri Card, pink pearl

I bought this Silver Mirri card to try and loved it so much that I bought loads more of it in different colours... so you will be seeing a lot more of it in next few weeks... I bet you will be sick of the sight of it by Christmas!! LOL

We are sponsored this week by the fabulous Lili of the Valley

I hope you can pop on over to our main blog at Divas by Design and see my Teamies romantic creations this week... they are all beautiful ... :-))

I'm loving the eBosser so far by the way. It embosses beautifully. The stacks/sandwiches are a bit heavier than I thought they would be... but I can kind of lean the stack against my desk and it's not too bad. The real problem with the Big Shot was the winding it back and forth... some dies needed it quite a few times to cut properly and boy it really pulled on the discs in my spine!! So at least with the eBosser you can just feed it in a couple of times... no cranking!!  I tried one of my most difficult dies which is a Vivienne Butterfly one by Memory Box... and it came out ok apart from one tiny area... so I think I will probably feed it through twice next time. But love it so far! 

I hope you are all having a good week
Take Care
Love and hugs

Hi Sue
Love love love your card it's really elegant the silver mirri is beautiful as a finishing touch. Sorry to read that dad has to go into care I hope you find somewhere you like for him it's a really difficult choice to make. You can review the care homes on the inspection sites (sorry not sure what they are called in England Care Commission in Scotland) Don't let the SOCIAL WORK DEPT PUSH YOU INTO A CHOICE YOUR NOT HAPPY WITH

Take care hugs Meg

This is a real stunner Sue. Glad you are liking your new machine. Sometimes if you put it through again you just need to turn the die on the stack so the pressure as it goes through is on a different part to cut. You probably know this anyway from your other machine.

Wishcraft said...

Such a lovely card Sue, love the silver and white and fab embossing. I love my eBosser... still need to put some dies through a couple of times but at least it doesn't have a handle to turn! If there's a bit that doesn't cut, try turning it so that part's at the edge as the pressure's greater there than in the middle. Hugs, Lisa x

Hi Sue, hope you are well and not worrying too much about your Dad. I have been thru the same with my Dad before he passed away. I'm sure he will get the care he needs.

Good to here you are happy with your ebosser. I've been thinking about a new machine for a while. I've only ever had my big shot and I do like it but fancy a change.

Your card is gorgeous, looking forward to seeing more of your mirri card!

Take care, Liz x
