Frustatrated!!!!!!!!

Hi girls! 

I am frustatrated (see I can't even spell it right! Frustrated!!!!!!!!!)....I have nothing to show and I have been at it all afternoon! I have to make these cards for my aunts anniversary and it is very traditional here to have some gold on a golden anniversary card.....and that isn't really my thing - unless I do Christmas cards and even there I try to avoid gold! So I have been stamping, gold on white, white on gold, flowers, couples all sorts and I don't like any of it! Gold on black or black on gold would be ok in my opinion but I know what my mom would say...are you sending them your condolences?????? So I am a bit stuck here.....maybe gold and blue??????? I must come up with something......I better go back to my craft room....

Sweet dreams and hugs
from a "frustatrated" Cardarian

  1. oh so sorry to hear your mojo is missing with Gold. If my Mother was alive she would say the same thing about the black LOL! I am leaving you a link to a beautiful 50th Anniversary card I have seen - it might give you some inspiration

  3. Oooooh I sure hope your creative juices started flowing when you went back in the studio! I know you will come up with something that works.

    Thanks for stopping by today :)

  4. Ah - the frustration of trying too hard - how about making a nice card and then embossing gold ink around the edges for a frame, and the inside message in gold too? For me there's no more classic a combination than gold on cream, but you're going to get a lot of advice about this!
    Relax....remember me and the silly silver wedding invitations! Good luck!

  5. I think black and gold can look quite classy, have a look here or try cream and gold as this always works.
    Thanks for your comment on my blog, I've bought a lot of my stamps from the stamp attic and another good one is happy-daze.net xxx

  6. I'd go for gold and blue or gold and green. They work nicely together
