A Bugs Anniversary!

Hey, 2nd post of the day, oh my!

So I would like to share a card I made for my other brother’s wedding anniversary that’s coming up in November.  Yes I know I’m a tad early but I am making Christmas cards so like a boy scout I am being prepared!

I remember my brother’s wedding way back in 2000 for being absolutely freezing!  It was a beautiful sunny day though and he got married in the gorgeous grounds of Stowe School in Buckingham.  The trees were covered in golden leaves (they have some amazing wedding photos) and the ceremony was held inside one of the stone temple thingies.  However this temple thingy was completely open to the elements (bracing north east wind anyone!) and as the name would suggest the stone temple had stone seating.  No cushions provided!  I will let you imagine what that was like!  But thankfully my sister-in-law was forward thinking enough to provide copious amounts of mulled wine (mmmmm mulled wine).  Beverley you’re a genius!

Anyway I hope they like this card.  I used one of the fab toppers from Hobby House that you can get here, a gorgeous drawing by Sylvia Zet called ‘Love Trip’.  They are just too cute. My DP’s are very old but matched perfectly and the dies I used are Spellbinders A2 Filigree Delight and Heartfelt Creations Sun Kissed Fleur; I also used the matching stamp set.  I do love my flat backed pearls so they had to make an appearance along with a bow made from Sheer Wrinkled Edge ribbon.

So there you are.  Another brother’s anniversary covered.  My third brother’s is not until July.  Too early to make that now do you think?

See ya!

Smiling always (I’m too organised for words!)!

Scribbly hugs
