Hi Folks

I'm a bit late getting my Tuesday Taggers contribution up on my own blog this week, life is a bit hectic at the moment what with the two newest additions to our family (Bertie and Yuki)claiming a lot of my time and attention, not to mention to fast approaching school summer holidays which always means extra music lessons to ferry my 15 year old daughter to - she always seems to have a music grade exam on the last day of term - this time it is Grade 6 Singing, school prize giving is this week too, and we are in the middle of the show jumping season ..... the same 15 year old is a really keen horsewoman..... and I am trying to get ready for a weekend craft retreat that I have organised with some really good friends and fellow all know who you are..... I think I will need the weekend to recover from this and next week isn't any quieter, looking at my diary.

To cap everything I got my themes muddled up and made a card for a theme that is comming up in a couple of weeks by mistake, and then had to set too and make this week's on the upside, I do now have that other card ready and waiting.

Anyway to this weeks challenge at Tuesday Taggers, Teri chose Anniversaries as her theme as she and her OH are celebrating 21 years this week, so a huge congratulations are in order.

I decided to use Suede Brown and Cream as my theme colours and Stampin' Up! Fresh Cuts rubber stamp set and punches. I didn't have a stamp which actually said "Haappy Anniversary" so I combined two seperate stamps from the Fresh Cuts Set which said "Thank You" and "For You" to create a suitable sentiment.

In real life the colours of the card are much warmer and are complimented by the gold brads and ribbon.

Have fun everyone.
