Oh L'amour, what's a boy in love supposed to do?....

Well in case you haven't worked it out yet, Jo and I have just got back from the Royal Centre in Nottingham where we saw the amazing Erasure. I can't believe i've waited over twenty years to see this amazing band, there was so much love in the room for them it was palpable. Andy Bell's voice is as good today as it's ever been and they pumped out hit after hit after hit, a fantastic night and a big thank you to Jo for my early anniversay pressie.

On to this weeks card and still a guest designer at I Love ProMarkers. This weeks challenge #88 Ain't it Cute actually came quite easily to me. We were all given a choice of 5 different sentiments and I immediately chose the wedding one because I knew I wanted to make a card for friends of ours who are celebrating their silver anniversary soon. I used a Make It Crafty background and a Magnolia image (when are Tilda and Edwin NOT cute?), with the box being made from an A4 sheet of white dotted swiss card. The blooms were all already in my stash and I used a couple of Nesties. All in all a quite successful effort I feel.

Hope you like it, see you again real soon.
