Wet bank holiday!

What a surprise...bank holiday Monday was sopping wet and the day we went back to work the sun was shining!  Alex was on good form though and we had a lot of fun with him dressing his teddies in caps and laughing at what they looked like. (I took this photo with my new phone!).
As it is Wednesday it is time for WOYWW and my desk is relatively neat as I am in the process of making a Wedding Anniversary card for Tim.  On the desk you can see my distress inks, my nearly empty mug of tea, the card I am working on and embossing powder which I am trying to add to the image using a Versamark pen (only having semi-success at the moment). Can my PIF person get in touch as I am unable to comment on blogger at the moment.
I did eventually get it to work so here is the final card which I am entering for Crafty Cardmakers 'love of the lasting kind' (we are celebrating 10 years of marriage), Simon says stamp and show 'your favourite stamp' (I love this Anita's stamp), Spoon Full of Sugar 'flower power', Stampin for the weekend 'blue, buttons (I used tiny ones) and bling and Pile it on 'sprinkles' (I used sprinkles of gem stones and embossing powder).  That is all from me for now. Have a great rest of the week.
Love,
Caro

Hello Caro love your Anniversary card and congratulations. I think I should start to think about my card to DH for our 40th Anniversary this year. I am also finding it difficult commenting on some blogs and cannot get on to the cardmaking forum for some reason. Have a lovely week off. Anne x
