Inspired by Kerryjo

My hubby came home from work on Friday and asked if I could make a few cards for his work collegues. The list included, 40th birthday wife, funny anniversary bingo card, 2 more anniversary cards......panic bells set off in my mind. I started off with the 40th birthday card. A while back Kerry made a card for my bling challenge and then very kindly gave the card to hubby and I for our 10th Anniversary. I loved the papers and colours so much that I thought they would be appropriate for the 40th birthday card, I hope you don't mind Kerry. The papers are from Craftwork Cards. DCWV diecut 'flowers' which have gone through my Big Shot using 'swiss dots' embossing folder, velvet and satin ribbons, diamonte ribbon slider, black sequins, cuddly buddly sentiment stamps have been heat embossed with silver embossing powder.
This card was meant as a joke. The lady is apparently a bingo fanatic and is always after her hubby's money to go and play, so I am told. Stephen found this image via google and he thought it would make a funny bingo anniversary card.....I'm not too sure if it will gone down very well with the recipient!!!!! Stephen did check with his mate first and he thought it would be a great anniversary card. To be on the safe side, I did make a proper sloppy card to go with this one, with lots of sloppy verses, just incase the lady in question wasn't impressed with the one below, I didn't get chance to take a piccie of that one though, as my hubby was in a rush to get back to work and he whisked it away.
I hope you all have had a great weekend. We were out all day yesterday, took our daughters to see Kung Foo Panda, the bits I saw were very funny, but I did fall asleep every now and then. I often do that in the cinema......hehehe!!! it must be all that popcorn pmsl!!!! We also quickly popped into the Papermill shop. OMG!!! not been in there for a while, had a huge shock at the size of the boxes, crikey have they shrunk. You used to be able to get loads of paper/card in the boxes before, now they are half the size, didn't notice a reduction in price though. I shall do some blog hopping tomorrow after work, lol!!! still seems strange saying that hehe!!! didn't realise how late it was, better get off to the land of nod now. ttfn xx vicki xx

Really beautiful and funny card. What did you put in google bar to get the picture? The colours on the top card are so beautiful, and go so well together. I bet your husbands mates were chuffed.
I know what you mean about The paper mill. I went in on Friday to get Square envelopes and they've gone up 5p per envelope, what's that all about!!!!!
Happy crafting Vicki x
