Happy Anniversary

Three posts today - not like me I know, but then again today is no ordinary day.

25 years ago today, I married my husband Craig at Kings College Chapel, Aberdeen in glorious sunshine. And so this second post is especially for him to wish him a Happy Anniversary.
- Hope he has a look on, cause I won't say!!!


I've kept the design quite simple, I did at one point have the card covered in flowers, but then decided in the end to go with die-cuts and a ribbon as I thought a male would prefer a less fussy card.


The embossing was done using my early anniversary present of A Big Shot - thanks Craig, just what I wanted, even though I couldn't make up my mind in the shop.  I think my cutlebug has seen better days now and isn't as good at embossing or cutting things in just one run.

My card also ties in nicely with the new challenge over at An Oldie But A Goodie, where Laurie has picked

Inspired by A Song
as the theme.

So my song is Love is All Around by Wet Wet Wet - not only a great song, but it was also at the top of the charts when I was due my first baby, Alan, so it's a song I've loved for ages.

As well as having a wedding image, I also tried to go old, new, borrowed & blue on my card.  My oldie being the embossing folders, my newbie being the image.  Borrowed - with the assistance of the lovely Debs, the die cut heart on a bow and finally little blue hearts on the sentiment!

Finally, cause I know you'll all be dying to see... a photo from 25 years ago. Jx


Sorry it's not that sharp, but that's cause it's a photo of a photo - digital hadn't been invented then!!!
