Lucy and Ricky's Anniversary!

Well, it's Monday evening and I'm going to post this card finally. I made it for a couple in England and I had to wait until I was sure they had it as they do sometimes check out my blog.

I have lived in Canada for 42 years now and these folks are friends I knew before I ever emigrated with my husband. We are all from the same village, in fact Ray and I lived next door to each other. I went to school with Joan and she was a couple of years ahead of me. I will always be grateful to Joan as she gave me typing lessons when I was about 13 or 14. I still remember going to her house, she tried to teach me shorthand also, but I didn't do nearly as well at that. Anyway, Joan and Ray have been married for 45 years now and we 'found' each other again due to my cousin, who went to visit them and gave me their address about 9 or 10 years ago, I think. We have been emailing back and forth ever since, as well as talking on the phone once in a while. It's wonderful to rediscover a friendship. Anyway, if you read this Ray and Joan, I hope you had a wonderful Anniversary.

Now to the card. I used 'Lucy and Ricky' one of the last release of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. I think these guys are so cute and I was happy to have an excuse to use the stamp. I'm going to have to put my thinking cap on as I sent it a while ago and I didn't write down what I used.

Of course I coloured those little guys with my Copics and I used S.U. Bella Birds DP and matched it with Going Gray and Pink Pirouette cardstock. I did some stitching on this card, which I love to do, added some Prima Flowers and some Pink Pirouette Ribbon and tied a heart charm on it.

Well, that's it for today, think I'm going to go and mount some Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps that I already have for next month's release!! I'm not a tease or anything, but they are FABULOUS.
I can't wait to start creating with them. Tee Hee!!

I'll be back soon,
