Love Is.... 60 Years Married

The current Challenge 96 over at Wild Orchid Challenge BlogSpot is "Love Is" so I thought I would enter this card made recently for my great Aunt and Uncle on their Diamond Wedding Anniversary.
 All flowers are Wild Orchid as are the little pearl hearts.  The image is Lili of the Valley.


 I also made a little box for it to go in.

Well there has not been much scrapping of late with the beginning of the school year and weekends away.  Last weekend we went to Wanaka to the Rippon Festival for DH's Birthday Celebration as it was one of those special ones ending with a zero.  The actual Birthday was 3 January but we had the cake this weekend made by the extra talented Zarlene from Arbitrary Cakes.  I had sent her a pic of our legend boat (which has now moved on to greener pastures) and this is what she came up with.
 Above - DH and Zac
The image on the right is what she modelled the figure on the left from. Pretty good likeness.
 
With the legend 'Banshee' in his favourite place - Haldan Arm with Aoraki Mount Cook in the background taken at least 10 years ago.

The next project is a wedding card which I must get onto on Sunday for next weekend.  Hopefully that gets my mojo going for the year.

Well that is all from me today.  It is Waitangi Day here in NZ tomorrow.  We are lucky enough to be getting a visit from our 3 girls and DGS's for a few days.  Lovely to see them two weekends in a row. 
 
Thanks so much for visiting.  Would love to know you have visited by leaving a comment.
 
Have a lovely weekend.
 
Until next time...
Dianne
