Crafts Galore Encore - Anything Goes

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you are enjoying the weekend and some of us have an extra day to look forward to tomorrow. We are off to see my parents to celebrate our birthdays. I share a birthday with my mother and my father's is five days later. My mum isn't too well and doesn't want to go out so we are going to take afternoon tea with us all bought from M&S.

Being the first of the month the new challenge starts today on the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge blog and the theme is Anything Goes. I am sharing a frame that I made as a wedding gift for a wedding we are going to in July.


I made a frame like this for the family wedding that was earlier in the year. This one is for another niece and her fiancĂ© I know she will be carrying sunflowers at her wedding. 

The Sponsor for this challenge is Di's Digis

I have a lovely set of sunflower stamps and I used it to create this background. 


Part of the set creates a layered sunflower. I made one for the frame. 


We had a few goes at laying out the words. 


This is the wedding card I created I used the same sunflower stamp set for the background just this time I stamped it in grey ink. 


The big plus about this wedding is that we will be staying 10 minutes drive from the Harry Potter Studio Tour, we have our tickets already, we are going on the Sunday after the wedding on the Saturday. It will make a very nice weekend. 


I hope that you enjoy the rest of the weekend. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
