Today is my 25th wedding anniversary and the weather is so different to what it was 25 years ago. It was raining on and off all day and I wasn't able to have the train on my dress drag behind me as it was too wet but once I got in church I was able to put it down. It brightened up just enough so that we could have some photo's taken outside. Still, to me it was a wonderful day and I got to marry my soul mate and closest friend :)
Anyway, enough about me, you want to know what I've got to show you today, don't you? You may have guessed that it my be my anniversary card to hubby, well you'd be right. However, I only made it today as he was cleaning the windows...haha, how romantic is that? He was a good boy and didn't peek when he came in and out of the conservatory so it was a surprise to him.
I've also used none other than the Confetti White for the base card and teamed it up with Whisper White and Basic Black. I wanted some "silver" on the card and what better card to use than Brushed Silver from the main catalogue. Now what could I put on the front that would keep the card both masculine and show how I felt for Dean? Of course it was easy, love hearts. So I punched lots of hearts out in all the colours using the Heart to Heart punch and 4 large hearts using the Full Heart punch. I embossed some Brushed Silver card using the Stripes Embossing Folder and some Whisper White with the Manhattan Flower. I punched out one large love heart from the Manhattan Flower embossed card to give the look of embroidery on the heart. Here is the finished card:
I was very pleased with the finished result and it looks much better in "real life" if you know what I mean? Inside I didn't put a veyrse but wrote something to Dean from me. So all in all it was a very private card.
I have had a lovely day relaxing around the house and basically chilling out. I can't say that's going to happen tomorrow as we have the gas men here fitting a new boiler, so that should be fun ..... not.
