Ruby anniversary

Its my parents Ruby Anniversary next week-its also my in-laws ruby anniversary this year-but I'm not going to cheat and make them both the same card, however tempting that idea is!!

I used the sketch and stash template for this card. The new stash is the ribbon, a free gift in a magazine, and the stamp although I've had it a little while its the first time I've used it. I also used up some paper I've been holding onto for a while-one of those I like it too much to use it ones, you know? I think it came in a self addressed kit-I do miss those

The second card is for 2 challenges, I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers for Linnies challenge of brown and pink. I love the colour scheme, in fact I like lots of brown combinations, it goes so well with so many other colours.

The image is a cute daisy may download from Linnie. I love these little ballerina's they remind me of illustrations in a children's book from when I was young-I just can't remember the name of them! Linnie has a DT call out if you'd like to enter.
I've decided not to add a sentiment for a change, that way I can use it for any occasion

I had planned a tiny bit of gardening today- Dad gave me some geraniums and bunny rabbits he had left over but the weather is yucky. I have to stay in today to have our fridge freezer collected-it died last week. Just hoping they don't take too long with the new one!
