A Wedding Card

The theme this week at Kenny K, and at so many other Challenge Blogs at the moment too, is ANYTHING GOES ... Well definitely I had to join in, especially when I had this wedding card to post, which I made using my newest image from Kenny K... and which of course is just perfect for this challenge.

I really love how this card turned out, so fun and elegant at the same time I think. I coloured image with promarkers, leaves and hearts dies are Marianne Creatables, DP is Papermania, and centre die Spellbinders.

I have some exciting news now yay :) .. I won last week's Totally Gorjuss challenge

and so now have a nice £10 voucher to spend at Joanna Sheen woo hoo :) 
Kind sponsors 

Some photos today as well...
woops sorry it looks like it's getting to be a really long post!

Well, remember last time I was saying about being asked to contribute to the Christmas edition of the in-house magazine of where I work. .. It is finally out... and so in time too, as today was my last day at work for this year since I'm on vacation leave now for the next five days yay. 

This is the front page and that is my page.
I had finally decided on a scalloped easel card. Thought it would be something different and that someone who isn't crafty and who only has basic craft stuff can try. 
This is a close up of the card. I suggested they use pictures from old Christmas Cards.

These are another two pages from the magazine. That's me again at the bottom when I had helped out in the Crafts day for the kids.  

One last photo.. all dressed up nicely now at the Cocktail party with my colleagues woo hoo
