There is No One I Love More Than You

Hello, its been awhile...

My husband asked me to make a card for a work colleague to give his wife on there anniversary and after a few WhatsApp messages I had an idea of what I was aiming for...

Unfortunately I took this photo and sent the card on its way before actually uploading the images and for some strange and unknown reason it looks a little blue. 

I so need to fix my DSLR... can't use this compact camera at all.

Now I have to confess, this is way too soppy for me... I prefer a little more cheek!

Right then, the image is from Altenew called Precious Peonies and stamped with Ink on 3 and coloured with Prisma pencils.

I'm definitely not as confident with colouring flowers as I am with cute animals, hey ho practise makes perfect.

The sentiment is from My Favourite Things just stamped with hickory smoke and spun sugar Distress Oxides.
