Love is all around - but don't look mum

Good morning to all my crafty friends and followers. I hope you're enjoying the continued sunshine! I know I am and so are my girls! Lets hope it stays around for a little while yet!

Today I've got an anniversary card that I've made for my mum and dad to share with you - hence the title of this post. Now mum and dad aren't quite as old as Jack and Ginger in this image from Mo Manning - but they're getting there! Sorry mum! I do so love this image though so I'm hoping they're not offended!

So I've used the image by Mo Manning and coloured it using promarkers. I've used 2 x-cut heart dies and run the card through my grand kaliber to make the window and then again in the card to add to the front. Finally I've used both dies together and cut the frame for the image. Along the bottom is a punch I've used from Martha Stewart. Inside the papers were free from a magazine (raspberry road?). I've wriiten all aound the outside of the front and the inside 'love is all around' which was the theme over at DP2 this week.

I'd like to enter my card for the following challenges:

DP2mosdigitalchallenge: Love is all around

We're off to see a friend this morning at a local church hall for a holiday club - then there's free dance classes on this afternoon in another village that I'll be taking my girls to! Should be good!

Hope you have a lovely time today and thanks for taking the time to pop over here!

Big Hugs
