Happy Anniversary To Us~

Hiya All~

It is our 26th Wedding Anniversary on January 12th. I know it's a strange time of year to get married, especially in this country when the weather is so appalling at that time of year however, but there was method in our madness......We are both skiers, or WERE both skiers...We loved our skiing so much that we even took a skiing Honeymoon in Austria!! I know...weird!

I did not have a clue what image to use on my hubby Chris's card. I looked through all the stamps I had, and did find a nice couple clanking glasses together, but I just did not want to use it. Then I spotted this pair of ducks I bought in September and have not inked up yet, it's a Penny Black Slapstick stamp, I think it is perfect for an Anniversary card, do you?
I think Chris and I could be those two ducks, I am the one on the left of cause!!

I have followed the lovely sketch on Crafts 4 Eternity, and the colours I have used are one of my favorite combinations ~ green and brown. The papers used are a mix of all my old bits and bobs, the heart punch is a MS, I have added a GF "love" sentiment and a Card Candy blob!

I would like to enter:

Crafts 4 Eternity--Sketch
Cute Card Thursday--Use old stash
Paperplay--Clean and Simple
Raise the Bar--Colour combo
Cuttlebug Spot--Inspired by a book (One flew over the cuckoos nest)
Polka Doodles--A Wish for the New Year
Penny Black at Allsorts--All you need is love

I was also going to enter this card for the Phindy's Place Challenge blog, BUT It's theme is "Food and Drink" and I thought entering yummy DUCK was just too cruel!!! Lol
