Young Love

It's challenge 71 over at Rosie-D's, and Saskia has chosen the challenge which is to do an Easel Card. There's a cute stamp for the lucky winner donated by Saskia, 'Kibo' is one af the lovely stamps from In2Stamps!!

So if you fancy doing an Easel card pop on over and take a look at the challenge and also for some inspiration from the rest of the team.

For this card I used a Lili Of The Valley image which was sent to me by my good friend Fiona, thanks love. The papers are my favourite at the moment Henbury Lane by Papermania.

There is a story behind this card, it's for my Mam and Dad and when I saw this image I knew straight away what I would use it for. My Mam and Dad got together when my Mam was 11 years old and my Dad was 13 years old. They knew then they were going to get married, My Dad wore glasses too, so as you can tell this image means so much to us. They are now going to celebrate there 41st anniversary on the 5th July.

It is Sir Stampalot's second challenge, it's the month of May and what better theme than Butterflies and Blossoms, a whole range of Tim Holtz stash is on offer this month, go on pop on over and take a look.

I hope you all have a good week.
Happy crafting

Hi Tracy

Such a pretty easel card, they are still my favourite shape of all the news style.

How's Bobby ? I told my boys about his little 'incident' and one reminded that my eldest did that to the one who is getting married.

I had totally fogotten about all those lovely golden curls (the milkman got grief for years after he was born, all the rest of the family are really dark?, but from memory he only cut off one side, so I had to even it up.
