Anniversary Cards!


Happy Sunday!  We're having a lazy day here today.  In a couple hours, we're going to head over to my mum's to help decorate her tree, but in the mean time, I have a couple of cards to share with you.  The first one is inspired by the Cloud9 Blog Hop.  I loved the gorgeous inspiration photos.  It is for a co-worker who is celebrating her five year anniversary next week.  

The second card is for another co-worker who celebrated his 15th anniversary yesterday (I'll be a couple days late).  It is inspired by the sketch at CASE this Sketch. Karen commented the other day that I have a rustic, clean style.   I have to say I've been laughing as I've been crafting the last couple of days...it does describe the style that I like the most.  She has me pegged.
 
I hope you are having a fabulous weekend with your family.  I'll be back at 8 and midnight with more inspiration for you!

  5. No matter how your cards end up looking, I think they are all great. But gosh, I sure do love it when they turn out rustic and clean and simple. There's just something about these two cards that resonate beauty. That second card looks like a scene out of my window right now (minus the fun red bird).

  14. Rustic and clean would not really go together in my mind, but you pull it off wonderfully! I love the little pop of red on all that 'natural' colour, Lynn. Thanks so much for playing along with CAS(E) This Sketch this week!
