A little bird told me...

It's my anniversary (27 years yikes!!!) on Sunday and I've spent the last 2 days trying to figure out what I want to use for hubby's card. Absolutely nothing was inspiring me and considering the amount of stash I have, that is tragic. I figured I would just pop in and out of my workroom in the hope that the stamp, papers, ink and Nesties would magically appear in a nice little pile on my desk and all I would have to do is put it all together! Since that wasn't going to work I had a good root route (look Sue!!) look around and spied a tiny DeNami stamp I've had for ever and got to work.

I have no fear of him seeing it before Sunday as he never goes on my blog so anyone out there that knows him and might bump into him...shhhhh lol!

This is what I came up with...

It's quite white lol but I like it

 I really wanted to try Gaynor's technique of running the image through the Cuttlebug in an embossing folder so I gave it a shot. I thought this heart embossing folder would be perfect for the occasion...I love it!

Isn't this little guy just the cutest!
I love these little tags and matching punch from SU! and think it goes perfectly. (The 'o' seems to have a's not my stamping honest!)

I've now 2 baby cards to make before I head to the hospital to visit Jean this afternoon. She's still hanging in there but her condition changes on a daily basis. She was moved to High Dependency on Friday and when I went to see her she looked great and was able to talk/whisper (she was asking for a cigarette!!!) a bit thanks to the valve in her tracheostomy but then the next day she was quite unwell and she needed morphine and a transfusion.

Don't forget to grab the banner for next weeks Blog Hop and guess the exclusive is yesterday's post to win a stamp :-D

My wonderful coordinator Lisa has made me a flabby button (it's top left and will be enlarged later today so you can read it!) for the special offer of 15% off when you place an order on the LCI website. You can take advantage of this until the end of November :-D

That's it from me today...hope yours is a good one.

Catch ya later x

Happy Anniversary to you and your hubby, Kerry. Your card is awesome. I love that white -on-white with just a touch of the silver showing. Very pretty. Now, as for the image -- I love Denami chicks and you've got a really cute one there. Hmm, I think I need to add that one to my collection lol!
