Hello Bloggers!

Well it's a little bit raining here this morning!  Billy my black cat is lying on my desk sleeping right besides me whilst I'm typing this post!  This is a regular thing for him he loves it but it can be annoying because he comes and lies on my hand or the mouse lead and I end up making all sorts of mistakes!
Anyway, this morning I'm posting an Accordion Album I made back in 2006 for my Mother An Father In Law's 40th Ruby Wedding Anniversary! 
Hope you like it!

This project was made about a year after I started card making and I remember that it took quite a lot of work and also that I felt quite pleased with myself because at the time it was a big achievement as it involved lots of different techniques!

There were lots of supplies used but I won't bore you with the details and list them!

My Mother and Father-In-Law were absolutely delighted with it!

I would love to receive your comments!

  14. What a lovely idea to make such an amazing card for your parent’s anniversary. It looks amazing and you’ve added so many wonderful details into it. I’ve also asked my sister to make a nice card that I want to give to my friend, on the occasion of her wedding next week at one of the amazing event halls for rent.
