Happy Anniversary Hubby


It was our Wedding Anniversary on Monday and I really couldn't decide what to use for hubby's card this year. He really appreciates a handmade card and the thought that goes into it. I remembered I had this Inkylicious stamp and as we love our little breaks and holidays went with a transport themed card. He loves classic cars and steam trains so I wanted to incorporate those into the card.

The map paper is from a Papermania Mr Mister pack and the piece at the top which is about aeronautics is from Carta Bella Well Traveled (I know that is spelt wrong but that is the American spelling!). The patterned burlap is from America. The dies are Cheery Lynn train, Marianne car, Die-version suitcase and plane.

Challenges
Dies R Us masculine
The Ribbon Girl a card

This is the verse I put inside, based on Beatles songs as we had planned to go to Liverpool last Sunday for a few days for our anniversary. However the weather forecast was so bad we changed our booking to July. I know you can't guarantee it will be better then but as we only have two and a half days there we want to get out and about and the forecast for he beginning of the week was cold, windy and heavy rain.

This card comes From Me to You
For All you need is love
And I want to hold your hand
Eight days a week.
So Hold me tight
Because All my loving is for you.
You’ve really got a hold on me
So whisper Words of Love
And Tell me why You love me do.
