Happy wedding anniversary!

We've been married for 19th years today! How did that happen?! Hearts and flowers are not really my husband's thing (!) so I made a card to make him smile instead - come and see:

Don't you love this penny farthing image from Timeless Talk? It's one of three fabulous vintage-style images and there are some great sentiments and a useful speech bubble stamp too.

I chose to make my sentiment in MDS though. Aren't I rude?!

Here's what you'll need to make this project
Stamps: Timeless Talk
Ink: Early Espresso
Card stock: Whisper White
Other: MDS, candy dots, stamp-a-majig

As I mentioned yesterday, my husband is a keen cyclist - some would say over-enthusastic! It does sometimes gets him into trouble... like the time he cycled across a field and was chased by a herd of stampeding bullocks! Are you beginning to see why I feel that 19 years is quite an achievement!

See you tomorrow,


  1. Happy anniversary!
    CUTE card.

  2. Happy Anniversary to you both, Vicky! Hope you have something special planned to celebrate. And I'm sure your card will be much appreciated!

  3. You beat me too it, Vicky; I always forget about the huge time difference! I wanted to impress you that I had your anniversary written on my calendar! Your card is a riot, and best of all, perfect for your cycling guy!! Happy Anniversary and many, many more!! Hugs, Darnell

  4. Great card Vicky,and that sentiment is just fabulous!
    Perhaps you should have received a medal (for long service LOL!) instead of flowers today-I don't know how the years can fly by so fast-we celebrated 25 years of marriage last year-how did that happen in the blink of an eye!
    Hope you have a lovely day,Hugs,Nessa xx
