Silver Wedding Anniversary Card

Two weeks after we got back from our big trip, we celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary.  I made my Husband this card for it.  

It is a 'Bookatrix' card made with a template.  I have alternated the layers with a white finely patterned card and a holographic silver card.  The heart is cut out of the top layer so that you can see the underneath layer.  Each layer is trimmed with some Peelcraft strips.  The verse was printed on the computer.  The ribbon bookmark has a pearl buckle and pearl bead.  

The flowers are silver and white roses with the white one has some silver glitter on the edge.  The leaves are punched out of several green papers.  There are little daisies with pearl centres and pearl beads threaded on nylon poking out of the arrangement. 

I made a box to match with the heart I had cut out of the card, edged with some of the hologram silver paper a bow and peelcraft frame.  

Mediterranean Road Trip and Cruise

As you can see, it has been a while since I have done a post on my blog!  I have been busy preparing for our big OE.  I have never been further than Australia, but we set off to do a road trip firstly in the Italian Riviera region - Rapallo, Portofino, Cinque Terre.

From then up to Lake Como.  From there we travelled to Venice where we picked up the cruise on the Holland American 'Nieuw Amsterdam' Ship. 

From there we went to Dubrovnik Croatia, Corfu, Kefelonia, Santorini, then over to Catania Sicily, then Sorrento and Pompei, Rome.

From there we went to Florence and Pisa and then over to Barcelona Spain.  We had an absolutely fabulous time and saw some amazing places.
