Forgotten Friday- almost didn't make it!
Phew, it's Friday again, although only just. I'm preparing to go away for my Silver Wedding Anniversary trip tomorrow morning, and life is just very hectic. We are off to Paris, and are leaving early in the morning to catch a train up to London, where we are picking up the Eurostar.
It's hard to believe that it is almost twenty five years ago that we got married, the time has just vanished. I don't feel old enough for starters! My children have grown up and sometimes, (if I don't look in the mirror), I don't feel much older than them, LOL! Here's a photo of myself and Terry on our wedding day, and I am the same age as my Daughter is now.
It's not a great photo, as I just snapped the one that is hanging on the wall upstairs. My dress is from the eighties, so it looks a bit stylised these days. I won't even begin to describe my going away outfit!
Anyway, I've cheated with my Forgotten Friday project this week, as time was so tight, and have made a very simple card for my OH as my project. I chose a fabulous paper from My Mind's Eye, that I have been hoarding for ages, with the Eiffel Tower in one corner. As we are going to Paris on our trip, it seemed appropriate. I have used a mask over the top, and sponged Tattered Rose and Aged Mahogany Distress Inks over the paper. I then brushed Walnut Stain DI around the edges.
I've used another neglected item over the top- printable acetate, to add the words 'Happy Anniversary'.
It is a very quick card, but my energy levels are still quite low as I'm still getting over this bone infection in my jaw. No news of when my tooth is coming out yet unfortunately.
Anyway, why don't you have a rummage through your forgotten stash, see what you have been neglecting, and try to make something too. If you leave a comment, I'll pop along to your blog to take a look. Thanks for stopping by, xx
