Rub-on's and Ribbon

Hello All,

I've had a very busy week having a new boiler fitted so I've had workmen here 4 days in all and the house looked like a bomb had hit it. Thankfully they are gone now, the house has some semblance of order and I'm very pleased with the new boiler and hoping my fuel bills will be a lot smaller now. (The last boiler was installed circa 1975 !.)

Anyway enough of all that, I made this card last night for my cousin who celebrates her first wedding anniversary next weekend. I wanted it to be green as that was her colour theme at the wedding and I also wanted to use some ribbon which was tied around the napkins at the reception. (Also used in a card a few posts back)

It's a very simple card and I used Rub-on's for the greeting so I could enter it into CAS-ual Friday's latest challenge - Here's the Rub. I always look at LIM's challenge first thing on a Saturday morning and this week it's Ribbon/Buttons so I can enter this card there also.


I used a new embossing folder called Dandelion Whisper which I bought at the Newbury show. Think I will do another card for LIM as I'm not sure this one is 'less' enough. No time today though as I need to make a Banoffee Pie this afternoon for my SIL's 40th birthday party tonight and then I will have to tart myself up..... will there be enough time???

Thanks for all your lovely comments last week, not only to me but also to my niece Em.
