Happy Anniversary Darling!


This week it is my wedding anniversary .... 27 years - blimey where did the time go to?? We will be out and about on the day, so I think I'm safe in posting this card I made for my darling husband a couple of days in advance as he never looks on here!!

I struggled a bit with this as I couldn't think at first what image to use ... all the ones I have with cute couples on he has seen already, and there's only so many new stamps you can buy for one use only (maybe I'm starting to get a bit sensible at last !!??!!) Anyhow, I did have this gorgeous romantic elephant image by LotV which I bought back in May and have never inked up yet (blush!!) , so I thought that would be suitable so long as the layout and colours aren't too girly. Here's the result.


Recipe:
Main image: LotV "Blowing Bubbles" coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Sentiments: LotV sentiment circles  on front (I masked "your" to make "our"); Penny Black transparent set "Every Which Way" (inside);
Papers: Craft Creations (gingham) and Papermania "Henbury Lane" (glittered dots);
Supplies: heart buttons from my stash;
Tools: large, small, scalloped and lacy circle nestabilities; Marianne D Creatables heart dies; Martha Stewart "valentine lace heart" edge punch.

I also decorated the inside of this card to make it a teeny bit more special ...


Challenges:
Ooh-La-La #88 - Anniversary
Totally Papercrafts #83 - Cute With Buttons
Paper Sundaes #86 - Finishing Touches
Charisma #36 - Inspired By A Song
("I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles")

That's all for today .. hope everyone is having a good week :-)
