Love Grows


August is a busy month in my family for wedding anniversaries especially towards the end of the month and when added to the 4 birthdays this month including my own I have a few cards to make. 

The anniversaries stretch over several generations from my in-laws who will be celebrating 52 years to my step niece who will be celebrating her second anniversary with her husband and new daughter who was born a couple of months ago.


I decided I would have a play with one of my Die'sire embossing folders which has these lovely roses on its corners and I thought it would be the perfect backdrop for this fab lily of the valley stamp of a cute couple gardening. 

The sentiment is also lily of the valley and comes as a bonus with the couple stamp but goes so perfectly and I feel is so apt for an anniversary card as I feel the love between a couple who commit to one and other grows and matures and has different phases.

I coloured the image with promarkers  and used one of the dark green promarkers for the sentiment also.




I apologise for the quality of the photos and the lack of cropping from the edges but windows has a fault which has meant I don't have access to my account which has my photo editor on it and as yet my resident techy (my hubby) hasn't had time to sort it out.
