Happy Anniversary

Morning all you Oldies and Goodies (won't say who falls into which category - I'll let you figure that one out yourselves), but what I will say is that there were a lot of goodies in my Hat challenge last time around and I must thank you all for your super entries.

Today it's the turn of Fran to set the latest challenge over at an Oldie But a Goodie - and she has chosen the theme of,
Anniversary
(Remember also to use an item of over 6 months on your project and to tell us what it is.)

In my case it was the cat stamp, made by Stampelkallan - which funnily enough I won over here at an OBAG before I was on the DT.  It's also a great theme for me this week as my 26th Wedding Anniversary is tomorrow.


My card also uses more lovely Bo Bunny papers - this time The Avenues Collection and is finished off with die cut hearts.  

It's also a handy card for me to have as it's our 26th Wedding Anniversary tomorrow - but I can't decide whether to send this cat card or my tic-tac-toe card from last week...which do I pick?

Challenges;
As You Like It - Feather or Fur - Fur obviously - Merlot cat would look daft covered in feathers!
Chocolate Coffee & Cards - Circles & Squares
Cute Card Thurs - Paw Pals
PB@ Allsorts - Anything Goes
Crafting for All Seasons - Lots of Layers
SSW2 - sketch 

Finally, I just thought I'd let you know that I've added a link to my Just Giving Page for the Race For Life, supporting the charity Cancer Research UK.  I have to admit, neither training nor fundraising have gone particularly well this year.  I've only raised £20 from an unknown sponsor and I still can't run the distance - so unfit!  Further to that, the race has been brought forward by a week as it clashed with the Commonwealth torch relay, so now things are serious.

The six week training plan starts today...and MUST be followed!  Progress reports will now appear weekly and once Colin finishes his exams I'll get him to help me personalise my Just Giving Page - can't do that either!!! Jx
