Happy Anniversary my Steve

Well it's been a long and busy week and now for the fun part. I've finished work for the summer holidays and today's my Anniversary, plus my Nicki's home later today. Then tomorrow my Mandy is going to be 11. So I'm doing a quick posting while my Steve has taken Mandy for a bit of fresh air, nothing to do with going to pick up my flowers lol.
This is the quick card I did for Steve. I'm afraid I was so busy trying to make sure all the kids at school had birthday cards for the holidays I left Steve's to the last minute. I did a double fronted card. For this I used paper from a QVC kit and added Tilda tree which I painted with watercolours, then added our initials (bless lol) I added chocolates and saying, cos Steve knows how much I love chocolate lol. Then on other edge I added Tilda with basket of hearts and Anniversary note. Inside I put this poem that I found
Our anniversary makes me love you more than ever
You're such a wonderful husband and not a day goes by when I don't think of what it means to be sharing life with you
I wish I had the words to tell you how thankful I am for your love and tenderness
All I can do is keep loving you with all my heart the way I do every single day.
Soft I know, but after 22 years I think he deserves lovely words. So that's me for today. I'm off to enjoy family time and then once Steve is back to work Monday the real crafting begins hooray. Enjoy this beautiful sunshine big hugs Vicki oxo's
