Not a Christmas card!...hooray!

Good evening my lovely friends! Today I finished making and writing my Christmas cards, hooray!!
I've put all my christmas stamps and papers away! I can see my desk! I can see the floor!- it's amazing!! (well the floor isn't amazing, just being able to see it is!)
Anyway, it's my daughter's wedding anniversary this week, 7 years ago we were in Mauritius, lapping up the sunshine and anticipating the big day!
I made this card for her using the beautiful 'Love is' stamp by Indigo Blu (seemed appropriate for the occasion!). I kept the design of the card simple, just inking the stamp with 2 colours of distress ink, doesn't really show in the photo, as light is not good, but it's a nice effect.
Entering the card in this week's Less is More challenge, the theme this week is 'anniversary'- how fortuitous!
Enjoy the rest of the evening
