I'm back home after a lovely 2 weeks away visiting family and friends in Western Australia. It was warm and humid there, so I was a bit shocked to come back to Melbourne's chilly Autumn weather. It is wonderful for sleeping at night, but it will take a while to get used to the day time chill.
I haven't had much time to create since I've been back as there were lots of household chores to catch up on. However, I did make this card to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary this week. I was married 5 days after my university graduation, so I'm not really that ancient!
My Mum informed me that this is a 'Pearl Anniversary' in traditional terms. I still remember our first anniversary which is 'paper' in traditional terms, when I made a huge paper banner using our work computer (yes, there were mainframe and mini computers back then!) on continuous computer stationery. Thirty years later, I'm still playing with paper, although it is much more colourful and fun to create now.
We celebrated with a lovely dinner and rather than pearls (although I love them), we will be spending 8 fabulous weeks in Europe during August and September to continue the celebration. The 'Sent with Love' DSP and stamp set seemed very appropriate for my husband's card.
