Anniversary Wishes at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees the new challenge at the

and today I was lucky to chose the theme of 


Matt and I are celebrating our 12th Wedding Anniversary on Sunday, we have nothing planned and have treated each other to nothing..........................oh please don't feel sorry for me I am going somewhere really special and Matt will be getting treated when he goes to the Dragon Carp Tackle Tour...............I will be able to tell you next week what my very very very special treat was........................oh cannot wait to tell you all, but you must be patient just as I have had to be.

So here is what I created
Now as you might have noticed I have learnt with the help of one of Mike's mates, how to create some fabulous frames for my images and how to combine lots of images in one image, I am so enjoying cropping and playing with the photo's at the moment, I will try not to go OTT though honest.

So the image above shows the card, taken at an angle, straight on and the inner return.

Here they are separately
I have used one of my new purchases from Grimsby Crafts yep you have got it some more little Critters.  The sentiment is from MSE.  The papers are from The Papermania Capsule Mono collection and the ribbon, flowers and velvet edged ribbon tape is from my stash.  

Here is the front shot
That is me with my head hidden in the red rose, look how Matt is holding it for me, he is so special.

Here is the inner return
Oh adorable I just love them, they are all part of the same set.

I coloured them with my copics.

I would like to welcome my new followers and say thank you to those of my wonderful visitors that leave me such wonderful comments, love them thanks.....

I am going to enter this creation into the following challenges
CCEE Stampers - Flowers
Paper Pretties - Flowers
House Mouse - May Flowers
Anything Goes - Bingo!!!! (Ribbon, die cuts, flowers)
Craft Your Passion - Cutie Pattooties

Hugs and hope your day is as great as mine
