Anniversary Wishes.

It's our wedding anniversary today
and this is the card I made for The Doc.
The digi is from Bugaboo  and is called
'Make it Snappy - Congratulations.'
As soon as Isaw it I knew I had to get it 
for The Doc's card.
Remember the good old days when a camera had film
in it which  you had to take all the photos on and 
then send away to be developed?
The doc had a mate who when ever he offered to take a photo
would inevitably cut the heads off the people in the snap shot.
Course you wouldn't find this out till long after the event when the 
film cam back  from being developed!
I thought this image would bring back happy memories.
Needless to say we had a professional photographer
for our WeddingDay!! 

I have chosen to make another Easel card
mainly because it won't then  fall off the shelf it will be standing on!
Image is coloured with Promarkers and 
Pearlescent chalks.

Sentiment is a black plastic peel off and yes the 3 dots
were part of the sticker. I peeled them off and stuck them
down using a lot of  choice vocabulary and tip of a pin!

Side view of the easel section.
The black plastic  peel off edging on the placard holding 
the easel in place I decided to ADD after I had stuck everything 
else down. will I ever learn!! 
And no I won't be telling you what the GP stands for either.
Curiosity killed the cat you know!

The doc and I will be going out to a very nice 
Fish Restaurant later  for lunch.
We went there last year only to find it was closed on Thursdays
so  hoping being as it is a Friday this yr we will be in luck.
Cheers.

Happy Anniversary! Hope you had a lovely lunch to celebrate. Just love your card and the story behind it. It reminded my of the day we climbed Snowdon, taking four hours to get to the top. DH took my photo to prove I got there and managed to chop my head off in the photo! xx LOL!

Belated Happy Anniversary to you! Very fun easel card, Mrs A, the image is so fun, I remember those old photos, it was always exciting to wait for the result, red eyes and cut off heads! It's a pity they don't age well. Have a wonderful weekend sweetie!

Love and hugs
Maarit

I'm sorry I missed your special day, but happy anniversary to you both. This card is so cute and I do remember those days of chopped off heads. Or, I got the film back and didn't remember what the pictures were of!
