First Anniversary Card

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you had a good weekend. We had a lovely time. On Saturday we met our daughter in town and  after a nice meal we bought a beautiful tiara and a veil. One more thing ticked off the wedding to do list. On Sunday we had a meal at our local Prezzo where I drank a bit too much Prosecco. It was an offer for Mother's Day.

The couple I made the wedding stationery for last year had their first anniversary at the weekend. It is unbelievable how quickly the time has gone. I made this card for them.

I had some lovely images from a past issue of Making Cards Magazine. I used the backing paper from there too. 

This is a Signature die. I was making the card and I wanted a Happy Anniversary die but I didn't have one. So I ordered one from Joanna Sheen it arrived in two days and then I finished the card. 

I had to use this image for the couple. They have a story from a few years back when we had lots of snow. Well the girl had to drive home to Portsmouth along the A3 and she got stuck. Her partner walked for two hours through the snow to her and they spent the night together in the car. 

I hope they liked this card. 

Have a great week. 

Happy Crafting
