Complete change in the weather here on the island..we have had some snow on the mountains at 700 mtr's and tonight its forecast for 400 mtrs..its been very cold,dark and windy today, looks like its in for the next few days.l love this type of weather, and we have had lots of nice warm days for several months,so a change was on the cards at some point..
The card l am sharing today, is for a 25th wedding anniversary.l have made an easel card and used silver mirri, pearls, silver beads and cut some hearts out. The little verse was out of a booklet of vellums that someone had sent me ages ago. l tore the edges and attached using the bead and pearl to cover the glue. The pretty paper was one l have had for a while. l also added a couple of little rings and a senitment 'To the one l love'..l am entering this card into the following challenges.... Wishing you all a lovely evening ! Hugs Susan x
