GLORIOUS weather today in Blackpool! Hope it's like that for you, too, wherever you are.

My four days off went by very quickly, and I've only one completed card to show unfortunately!
A close-up of the kids ('A kiss for Chloe, Sarah Kay), which shows the colours pretty much true,
And the completed card! This is for my parents - it's their 45th Wedding Anniversary.

Not a great photo, it's a bit washed out despite trying to fiddle about with editing. I dont often do gatefold cards, and once I'd decorated the inside it wouldn't lie flat for a photo!

Supplies: PP is Basic Grey 'Two Scoops'. Flowers by Prima and the metal flowers are charm brads by Dovecraft.

Copic recipe
Boy: Skin E00, E21, Hair - Y28, Y21, overalls - W1, W3, W5, W7, Shirt - G00. Hat E31, E33, E35, E37
Girl: Skin - E51, E93, Hair - E35, E37, E49, overalls - B93, B95, B12, Shirt - R35, R32, R20, Hat - Y21, Y28, E37
For their knee patches/ hair ribbon/ hat band I worked with colours I'd already used. I should have perhaps given the boy one red knee patch, or his hat band could have been red. I've outlined with W1 and then went over that with E51 as the outline was too similar to colour of the boy's overalls.

How to make the Pebble/Gravel ground is here on Marianne's blog. I practically stalk this blog! LOL


  1. Where does the time go eh? Well I'm glad you managed to find a bit of crafty time anyways! Loving the gatefold card - I never think to make these! The pebble/gravel is really effective too!

  2. Love the card Alison, wow 45th wedding anniversary, congratulations to them both! Beautiful card, not often I do a gatefold card, so thanks for the inspiration.

    Bye for now,

  3. Beautiful again Alison :o) Your colour is amazing as always. Really love this image too ... it's so sweet!
