Yep it was me again . . .

. . . who set the challenge over at Polka Doodles. The challenge I decided to set everyone this week is to create a "Modern/Retro" themed anniversary card as hubby and I are celebrating 20 years of wedded bliss on 9th June ! ! ! We like to think that we still fit into that category (modern, retro & hip) although I think the kids might strongly disagree !!!

All the papers and digi toppers (or stampies as Nix likes to call them) are from the new "All around and Everywhere" CD and I have followed this week
2S4U sketch to start me off (as it were!) I have also used my Stampin Up and Martha Stewart punches to create the decorative edges.

Now the sentiment is a mixture of Letraset rub-ons, alphabet stamps & some lime green rub-ons (sorry, don't know the company as they weren't in their original packaging). The card is also quite big; 8" x 8" so hopefully hubby will be able to spot it!

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:

2S4U - followed this weeks sketch
Digital Tuesday Challenge - they want us to "get trendy" and I have chosen "Kitch Retro" as my trend.
A Spoon Full of Sugar - to make a celebration card

Have a great Friday everyone and I am off for a LONG blog hop. I have missed out on all the gossip and fab projects everyone has made so need to sort this out ASAP ! lol x
