The Anniversary Waltz

Morning girls
Well the big man in the red suit has been and gone thank goodness. Why we get ourselves into such a tizzy for one day is beyond me!!! Just the New Year to get out of the way now and we can get back to normality, what ever that is:)
Anyway, we're not having a break from the challenges over on Karen's Doodles so I'm hoping you find the time to play along this week.
It's nice and simple and great to get away from the Christmas cards, although I'm keeping to my promise to join the Christmas challenges out there this year. So, what's our challenge?

Isn't this the sweetest image? I don't know how Karen manages to get the facial expressions the way she does but you can just see how these two old dears adore each other can't you? This is one of the new valentine images , Sweep me off my feet but I've used it for an anniversary card for me Mum and Dad (still to be personalised) as it's their wedding anniversary on 30th.
So there you have it girls, hopefully you'll play along and don't forget to visit me teamies to see their wonderful creations too:)

I've coloured with copic markers, papers are SEI, pearls and lace are from me stash.

  1. Hi Anne, I know exactly what you mean and I have good intentions of joining you on those christmas challenges throughout the year. I have sooo many that still haven't met my ink pad, lol.

    Happy New Year.
