Digital Page and Golden wedding cards

Hello Everyone. I am late posting today as I seem to have been doing so many other things. Thank you for visiting Jumbled Crafts.

Art Journal Journey still have Birds, Beasts and Humans for us to think about. Really wonderful entries so far as always.

Today instead of using one of Valerie's photographs as a background I used several of her bird photographs on a background of our plant house. Thank you Valerie for the joy you bring to us with your wonderful photographs

It was lovely to imagine that the birds have flown over here from her balcony near the Rhine to say hello to us near the NE Yorkshire coast.

I have also been making some Golden Wedding Anniversary cards.

 I wondered why so many of my friends had Golden Weddings in March then I remembered that way back when we got married in March before the tax year began in April. That way we could reclaim married allowance for the whole year before and almost pay for the wedding.

I won't be doing much crafting at weekends as the rugby is on for a few weeks and I wouldn't ever miss that for sure. I usually stamp things to colour them but rarely manage to do any of them as my eyes are glued to the television.

Have a lovely weekend

 Chrissie xx

  2. What a fabulous collage of photographs and so wonderful that you used photographs by Valerie. Her balcony seems to have a wonderful view and lots of visiting birds. Your Golden Anniversary cards are gorgeous. Have a great weekend, Shirley xx

  3. I didn't know about this now defunct tax break! Not quite the romantic reason to fix a date... Beautiful cards, elegant with the detailed die-cuts.

  4. Nice collection of birds and the quote is so couraging to those who cant sing well like me ;)
    Happy Valentine's Day to you,

  5. A gorgeous collage using Valerie's bird photos. The Wedding cards look beautiful and will be treasured by the couples I'm sure. I'll be glued to the Rugby again this weekend as well.
