 Good morning, I have two cards to share today- the first is for this fortnight's challenge at 
the theme is LOVE , you can interpret this however you wish, it doesn't have to be a Valentines card- which is good for me as I don't really make them! 

I made this card for my daughter's anniversary back in December- I made a similar one for my son's anniversary too- also in December! So kind and thoughtful of them both to get married in the same month at the busiest most expensive time of the year- bless them!! At least the weddings were 11 years apart and they couldn't have been more different- my daughter and SIL were married in Mauritius, blue skies , beach and hot sunshine. My son and daughter-in law chose Canterbury, here in the UK, freezing cold, a heavy frost and bright blue skies.  I have treasured memories of both wonderful days!

The cards were quick and easy to make. I die cut a heart shape from the centre of a piece of cardstock to use as a stencil, stamped and masked the rabbits ( so sweet, Anita Jeram, Colarado Crafts) in the centre of a die cut square. placed the cardstock with the heart aperture over the top and blended Distress inks through it, removed stencil and mask, coloured the rabbits and some grass. I stamped a few little stars from the same stamp set and embossed them with with white EP.  

There's more inspiration from the Sweeties over at the Challenge Blog, hop over and take a look! Then we'd LOVE to see your take on the theme so please do join in if you can. 

I'll be back later with my second card

Perfect card for a wedding anniversary Chris, so sweet, especially with the heart shape. We had two weddings back to back practically 5 years ago with both my sons getting married within 4 weeks of each other! Exhausting work lol.
