Unicorn Challenge Blog - Anything Goes

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going?

The last challenge of 2017 starts on the Unicorn Challenge Blog today and the theme is  Anything Goes. The Design Team will be having a break in December and will be back raring to go on the first Tuesday of January. So let's make this last  challenge  of 2017 go with a bang.

Back in the summer I was asked to make a wedding card by the girl who comes to the house to  give me Sport's Massages. The colour choice was pink, cream and gold.

The paper was in my stash and I just had to use the pink lace. 

I used the Creative Expressions Heart of Hearts die set to create the hearts. The Mr and Mrs die is from Crafter's Companion. 

The bunting die is one from Tattered Lace. 

The Congratulations die is a Tattered Lace die too. 

We had a lovely time at the NEC. Unfortunately on the way there we were subjected to some road rage. A man got out of his car and swore at my husband and banged on the window. He had taken objection to my husband changing lanes though there was space and he had signalled. Fortunately the man got into his car and drove away. 

We had a lovely long chat with John Lockwood and he made us a Christmas card that he signed. I was taking the selfie so I look a bit strange. I wanted my husband in the picture as he gets on well with John too. 

I won the ticket to go to the NEC from Jenny Mayes Facebook page. We went to the Hobby Art  stand to say thank and the hand over a little gift and a card. 

I was rather pleased with how this wedding card turned out. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

Hi Jackie,
what a very beautiful wedding card.
Your design is so brilliant and that lace is gorgeous.
Love the 2 hearts with the Mr & Mrs.
Super paper also.
Don't these road rage people make you mad they think they have the right to their lane and no one else.
My Granddaughter has a new car .
that is an auto and she accidently slipped on the brake peddle and damaged ever so slightly the car in front.
Well the man got out and was so abusive to her, and my Great Granddaughter was in the back of the car terrified for her Mum she is only 6 years of age so you can imagine how she was.
I told my Granddaughter to get a dash camera fitted so the next time something of that nature happens she has it on camera for the police as it an offence to abusive to other drivers.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

A very elegant card Jackie. Beautiful lace and fabulous die-cuts.
I can sympathise with how frightening the road rage incident must have been as I've been a victim myself in the past xx
