Spring LOTV wedding anniversary!!

Hello again Peeps!!

We had an awesome day of family togetherness today and it was fabulous. Mo went to bed super happy and that feeling is magic when you are an owner of little peeps! 
This morning we took Holly out for a walk so we could deliver this card to one of my gorgeous friends from work who lives in our village. It is her first wedding anniversary tomorrow and I just had to use this little LOTV stamp because as soon as the nice weather started a couple of weeks ago Sarah and Jack got busy on sorting out their garden and putting up a little summerhouse too!!

This stamp was just perfect for the glorious spring/summer weather we were having and its all romantical for an annivesary with the little  couple working together on the little heart tree :) 
her little dress is coloured red because sarah has one that is red with white spots that she lurves and some red shoes that are her fav!!! yey!!! I try to stick to around 3 main colours when I am colouring ( though judging by less than little pile of pens below I am not sure how well I managed that today!!!)

Here's a better piccy of the little sweethearts!!!
I nestied out a little circle window and popped it up on foam so that the little stamped circle was set back into the window. I absolutely love my new big shot for helping me to do this, I think it is definitely my new favourite tool! I am so pleased I got it!!!

I also stamped my LOTV circular special day  stamp and added in the date for their first anniversary. I think your first anniversary is so special as that first year just flies by, I think its 'paper' for the gift too so its a good job I made a card!!! lol!! 

Oh and off course a Lord Timmie tattered florals flower was extremely needed on this card!! :) (...mmmm I don't think there is really ever a time when Lord timmie is not required in some way on one of my cards....)!!! and a sizzix swooshy thing behind the special day stamp.
Here's another piccy from a different angle so you can see my Lord Timmie flower better :)
And I added a little heart button too, I love that button! it came in my do crafts bouffle button bag and its too cute!! the centre of the flower came from the same bag too. It has all sorts of gorgeous buttons in.

The papers are the nitwits papers called Crab Apple Too  that Fleury made me buy....:)

Here's my not so small  'promarker pens used' in an elastic band piccy !!! I do love this idea!!!
Challenges I am entering with this card are...

Tomorrow we have another kinda lazy day planned, though we do need to pop and get some new toy storage for the garden as Mo's little toy shed has broken and his toys are getting wet. He loves being out in the garden so we are going to look for some kinda storage bench he can sit on too. 

Hope you had a great day everyone and thank you so much for popping in on me
