Another 40th wedding anniversary and glass fusing

Well I think we have just been to the last 40th wedding anniversary celebrations for this year.  This time it was my sister Val and her husband Jim's 40th.

I made them a Bookatrix card using Serif Digital Scrapbook Artist for the images on the front of the card.

After my great summer school doing stained glass I went for another day with the same tutor at his studio as I wanted to try fusing glass.  This was to be the present for Val & Jim and I ended up making them a large fluted bowl and two matching candlestick holders.  It was great fun and I think I will certainly be doing more glass work - also it makes a really unique present.

Talking about the stained glass summer school here is a photo of the main piece I made.  It's an art deco tree of life lamp.

Thanks for looking.


  1. What can I say Karen your glass work is just fabulous, Val & Jim must have been over the moon not only with their card but all the different glass peices that you gave them, stunning work and just loved your art deco lamp...


  2. Wow you have certainly been keeping busy and these glass pieces and the card are brilliant. How great to be able to give such unique gifts - I bet they love them.


All your comments and thoughts are really appreciated, as is the time you've taken to leave them :o)
