Sweet Stampin - Out of the Frame

 


Good Morning :)  I hope everyone has some fabby plans for the Bank Holiday Weekend! :)
 
My card today is for our new challenge over at Sweet Stampin where this week the theme is 'Out of the Frame'.  We are sponsored by the brilliant Sew Sweet and our monthly sponsor is the generous Joanna Sheen.  Excellent prizes! :)
 
Now, 19 years ago on a sunny Bank Holiday Monday my wonderful husband David and I got married at Gretna Green.  I have never remembered the date - lol, so we always just celebrate on the Bank Holiday Monday.  I am not really a gushy romantic (I leave that to him - lol ;) but he is a keen photographer, and I know he will love this card :) 
 
I used a gorgeous Penny Black stamp, Prima Faery Belle papers, Spellbinder dies, twine from Joanna Sheen and camera charm from stash.  As you can see, I have also been giving my mini sewing machine some hammer this week too - I luvs it! :)

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

A Gem of a Challenge - Animals or Teddies
Penny Black & More - Whiskers or Wings
My Mums Craft Shop - Anniversary - this is my anniversary card for my hubby :)
 
I might be a little quiet on the grid the next couple of weeks as we have our holidays, but I will still be popping along with my usual posts and visiting when I can.  Have a smashing weekend,

Congratulations on 19 years!! Great card, just love all of it!

This is delightful & I love the very shabby chic colours you used. That little camera charm is brilliant & I particularly like your positioning of the mice. That 'smile' tag looks excellent offset with the steely blue behind & I just love that striped paper - brilliantly manly too (R has some pyjamas not too dissimilar which I absolutely love & shall try to obtain in a small size for myself (wonder how they measure my length of leg????)
Congratulations & have a lovely hols time with your lads.
