Aged Perfectly

This set from My Favourite Things is one that I purchased from the craft show last month, actually I purchased a few MFT sets.
My Daughter turns 21 next month so I am working on cards with drink glasses, not that I would send her this one, I think it is more suited for someone who is 21 again rather than the first time around. I love the paper piercing, so much easier than colouring the dresses in. I used sketch MFTSC73 for this layout.
Stamps: MFT - Girls night out
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Riding hood Red. DPS - Bella Rose.
Other: Cuttlebug EB Folder - Bubbles, oval punch, copics, Kaiser pearls

25th Anniversary

This is a very quick post as today is my 25th Anniversary and my Hubby and I are heading off to spend a few days at a golf resort.
Wow 25years together, it just seems like it was the other day that we met.
Your love has brought me happiness
Your touch has made me warm
And all you do and say to me
Makes my heart begin to swarm
Each happy day, each moving hour
That you are by my side
I know and love just who you are
And there you will abide.
I love you.
Happy Anniversary
