Anniversary Wishes

Good morning all.

We spent a lovely day with my Aunt and Uncle yesterday.....a morning catching up, lunch in Paignton then hubby and I had a brisk walk with my Uncle to Sharkham Point - 4 miles in under an hour with my Uncle setting the pace at nearly 87 year old! Looking forward to spending some more quality time with them over the next two weeks.

An anniversary card to share today made for my niece and her husband who celebrate their first anniversary later this week.

Kraft card base; die from Memory Box; hearts stamp from Unity; sentiment stamps from Imagination Crafts; paper from Nitwits and sequins from my stash.
