Wedding special

Righto, you may need to sit down with a brew and a jumbo bar of chocolate for this post! I'll start off by saying Happy Anniversary to me as me and hubby have been married 6 years today. We've been together for 14 years though so we don't like to do things quickly, in fact we only bought our first house 16 months ago!

It's also our best friends third anniversary on Tuesday so I'm posting their card today and hoping she doesn't look! They were our Best Man and Chief Bridesmaid and then we returned the favour for them!

This card is for several challenges: Pink Elephants fabulous sketch, Charisma Cardz - 'Scrap It', Craft Challenge - 'Embossing' and Sunflowers and Dragonflies - 'monochromatic'. All the DT creations on these blogs are well worth a visit so please try and take the the time to pop over.

The papers are S.E.I. and the one with straight lines on has a lovely silver sheen to it. The photo is of the Bride and Groom, printed onto linen card to give it a soft look. My embossing is cuttlebug Swiss dots folder and the sentiment was printed on the PC.

My friend Michelle doesn't have a blog but she should. This is the anniversary card she made for us:

And I promised to pop some of my wedding photos on didn't I? So here goes:

Cutting our cake

My first pint as a Mrs - shame it doesn't say 'Boddingtons' on the glass, you can take the girl out of Manchester........

During the service - serious stuff - how scared do we look?
