WOYWW Part 2 - Happy Anniversary Darnell

I would have included this in this morning's post but it was still far from complete - like Di, over at Pixie's Crafty Workshop, I'm a slow crafter, particularly when I aim for a clean and simple look :) However, better late than never!

Happy Anniversary to you and your husband, Darnell. 

I hope you have a lovely day and many more happy years together too. 

These two sweet little love birds seemed perfect for the occasion.

Materials used:
a square white card base
Sheena, A Little Bit Sketchy Best Friends Swirls stamp set
BoBunny, Love Birds Clearly stamp set
Memento Rich Cocoa ink pad; Colourbox Cat's Eye Chalk Queue, Pink Pastel
Kanban Crafts, In the Garden paper pads

Edited to add this photo of our wedding taken sixteen years ago:

  1. Wow you've a head for a hat! My mother in law (lives in Peebles in the Borders) is the same - I think she scopes out weddings to go to just so she can buy a new hat! lol! Thanks so much for sharing your photo with us and joining in all the Anniversary fun! I love your little love-owls,too and the soft pretty colours!

  2. Don't you two look a lovely couple and that lovely auburn hair too. mind you I love your silver locks now too. Just wait until you see mine soon from almost 47 years ago. Still happy together and I bet you are too.
    The quilts are only small and needn't be complex so have a practise sew and see if you fancy a go at one! Thanks for even thinking of it!
    love Jo x

  3. I absolutly love your card! Great pic of you and the DH. We will hit 40 yrs this coming October. People think the weeks fly by, but I'm not sure where the 40 YEARS have gone LOL

  4. Hi Elizabeth, This is stunning what a great clean and simple card your images are brilliant and the colouring is too! lovely photo of you and hubby l'm 40yrs next month.........GOSH you get less for life wouldn't change it for the world xx

  5. Oh I love your card - the owls are so adorable. And I think your Wedding photo is so elegant - love your hat. You both look so happy!

  6. Beautiful card and such a lovely happy couple Elizabeth. Great outfit, I love a good hat but nobody ever wears them these days!


  7. These are a couple of sweet owls, Elizabeth! What a lovely wedding picture! I wish I could look half as good in a hat!

  8. Oh Elizabeth, what a beautiful romantic wedding photo! Don't you both look sooo lovely... This is the most fun swap for ages - just signed up for it. What a great idea.

    I love the dear little owls too.

    Happy belated WOYWW,

  9. Oh, Elizabeth, I'm in a snit! Or I'm totally losing it! I swear I left a comment here. Before I responded to all the many comments leaving well wishes on my posts, last week I visited everyone that linked at Ardyth's. I don't know what happened to yours.

    Today I am getting to the comments and I only just came by to look at your original WOYWW (finally!) and first I looked at the comments here to see if I had mentioned about linking your photo, in addition to your card. My mouth fell open when I didn't see a comment AT ALL from me here.

    So. My dear, thank you VERY much, so much, for dedicating a special post to me and Mister and our anniversary. Thank you, too, for your sweet wishes in the comments on my blog.

    And thank you, especially, for the darling owl card made just for us! I absolutely love it! I have pinned it to a Pinterest board I've set up for all our cards.

    You must think I'm so rude and I don't blame you! I did take some time off the computer to celebrate so that's why I am just now checking out the WOYWW posts.

    I went back to Ardyth's site and see that you haven't linked a second time to add your absolutely lovely wedding photo! Please do that; she has set it up so people can link again. You two look so happy and spiffy! You look devine in that scrummy hat!!

    Finally, can you let me know the month and day it was, sixteen years ago, so I can return the flavor of leaving a comment on your blog on your special day? Please.

    Mwah!! Darnell (#64)
