WOYWW 189 - and Happy Wedding Anniversary to Darnell

Things were just ticking along here yesterday - until an email kicked me into action:
Darnell, who is much loved in Blogland and is a regular on WOYWW as well as in the Snippets Playground has a Wedding Anniversary today - so out came the card, paper, Penny Black Stickeroos (no time for the luxury of stamping or colouring), ribbons and of course I found time to make a fresh cup of coffee.

I'm a very slow crafter so it was a little while later that this was finished:
Tah, dah!!!!!!!!!!! Happy Anniversary Darnell and Mister K - from all your WOYWW and Snippets Playground little Playmates  - hope you have a lovely day!

I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card stock

- a luscious deep pink snippet of backing card by SU

- patterned backing paper by Bo Bunny from the 'et cetera Collection'

- Penny Black Stickeroo from the 'Heart and Flowers' sheet

- deep pink and cream organza ribbon from the ribbon box, along with a sweet little 'double hearts' charm - tied with some iridescent cord

To join in WOYWW - hop over to our lovely hostess Julia's here - I suspect there might be more cards and good wishes for Darnell and her hunky hubby flying around :)

Lovely card Di, you certainly can pull a beautiful creation from up your sleeve at short notice. I'm sure Darnell is going to be so touched by everyone's efforts.

Happy WOYWW xxx

I like your in progress flurry Di, and the end result is lovely. Oddly enough, I pulled an old card off my blog that I know Darnell won't have seen and posted it up today.... and it's made with the same PB sticker sheet!

Hello Di,

Beautiful card! Man, you really perform under pressure!!!

Darnell said...

Great minds, Di! Those are my VERY favorite PB Stickeroos and they make the prettiest cards for VD. Or for a last-minute surprise-the-heck-out-of-Darnell anniversary card! It's really, really beautiful! That bow and charm are fantastic!!

(I've made a special Pinterest board for all the wonderful cards made for us!)

Thank you, dear friend, for all your part in this, spreading the word. I am touched, we both are, (overwhelmed really) by all the love and attention! It'll be days before I settle down and catch up.

You're the best! Mwah! Darnell

Darnell said...

PS Could you put a reminder on your next post that we would LOVE to see everyone's wedding photos and give them the link to Ardyth. If they aren't married, we don't care, or no wedding photo, any couple shot will do as far as I'm concerned. It's all about the love! And you join in too, BTW! Please and thank you!
