A Boy Card!!
Well I just loved the Royal Wedding, did you?....Started watching about 8.30am and did not stop until the gorgeous couple left the balcony after the "double" kiss!!
I know some people have had a little moan about the Royal Wedding being expensive and a bit too "Royal", but I loved it.
Unfortunately (as is the case lately, must be my age or something) I had several teary bouts. The worst one was when I saw William and Harry together in their uniforms, I thought about Diana straight away, and how they walked down the Mall that day behind the coffin....BUT then I was all smiles when I saw Kathrine's dress........How totally perfect was that, so understated yet just, so her. I was delighted she picked an Alexander McQueen dress by Sarah Burton, just a Perfect Day (as the song goes!)
So after a great day I decided to have a play while all my lot are out and I am here "Home Alone"). Yippee
I have not used this Edwin Magnolia Stamp for ages, and I do love it, I only have a couple of Edwin's but I do think he is a sweetheart!
I have used some papers from my stash, and I have made a button from the same papers. All I did was cut out about 6 star shapes from a NS die I have, I like making my own buttons, I have put two holes in the middle with my cropadile.
I have added a sentiment from the Fizzy Moon collection, and a few red staples.
The border punch is a MS, I used to think I did not like this punch, but it is perfect for a man/boy's card.
