Our Wedding Anniversary

Today is one of the three occasions a year you get to see my husband's handiwork as well as my own, as today is our second wedding anniversary!

Here is Sam's masterpiece.  He took the greatest care even with the envelope:

From a clever bit of masking on the outside of the card...

... to selecting a suitably embarrassing photo on the inside!  I've airbrushed out what he wrote so you sticky beaks can't read it!!

Considering he's made about 5 cards in his life, I'm a little in awe of him!  But then he does point out that he has an excellent local SU demo!

Here is what I made for him:

Mrs. Owl even has a diamond on her ring wing:

Mr & Mrs Owl were made using my owl punch and are perched upon the swirl from Everything Eleanor, stamped in Pear Pizzaz.  The banner is made from a scrap of Twitterpated paper and the base is Crumb Cake card.  I'm not going to do my usual supplies list as we'll all go a bit mad from reading that for both cards, but do get in touch if you have any questions about what we've used!

Have a lovely day!  Thanks so much for visiting,

I was so taken by the romantic couple that you are, I almost forgot this is a blog about cards. I love them both. The script and the packaging of his was very inventive and quite awesome. Your owls were sweet, neat and just fab. Happy Anniversary!
