To The Happy Couple

Challenge time once more at MAWTT, and today Gail has chosen

To The Happy Couple

So that could be an engagement, a wedding or an anniversary card - it's up to you.

I went with anniversary, as my husband and I celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary last month.  I looked it up and apparently the appropriate gift for said occasion is a sculpture, so I'll keep you posted if one appears!  (Perhaps not!!!)


Anyway, back to my card and the stamp used, it's a Penny Black showing a lovely sun set, and it just reminded me of our honeymoon in St Lucia and the sun sets there.  I had never seen a sun set so quickly and was amazed that you could be on the beach sun bathing then about half an hour later the sky was black and it was night!

I know exactly what you mean about those sunsets in the Caribbean Janice, they are amazing and probably the only ones that perhaps beat it are Upper Egypt where you can literally watch the sun disappear seemingly into the Nile. ALl lovely memories.

Back from daydreaming and onto your very sweet card, the image is perfect for a romantic occasion.

Oooo i so love this stamp, he he he, i wonder why ;-), a great scene and such a stunning sunset too - although when i was in Oz 11 years ago for 3 months, i had had enough of sunsets, as they are so not the same on your own !!, Luv Sam x
