I Got You Babe!

Hello Everyone from a dim and drizzly Inverness, yes it's a dreich morning out there, but not in here as it's our Wedding Anniversary, a whole nineteen years and everyone of them just got better.
We will be going out for a meal tonight to a restaurant that is pretty popular here in the town, Urquhart's, gorgeous food.  I'm going to be like a house end with all this eating out, I'm half way there as it is. What with the Indian meal last Friday then at a night out at our Assist. Manager's home where she wanted to have her leaving do rather than go to a restaurant.  She cooked the most amazing food and baked gorgeous cakes, and you know what's like, you keep going back for seconds..... then thirds. What a lot of work was put in to feeding us. Now out tonight, and tomorrow is Alistair's birthday, not going out but I usually cook something special, I hope he just wants scrambled egg!

Here is the card I made for him:
When I saw this image from Justinklined it was if it was meant.  Alistair a few weeks back asked me to see if I could download the music and words for the Sonny and Cher song as his little band was wanting to learn to play it, they sound awful at it by the way, lots of practise needed. I thought this was a fab image for an anniversary card.
First Edition New Leaf Papers
Black card
Spectrum Noir Pens and WOS, except it doesn't show up
Card Candy
Gloss on spectacles
Papermania Sentiment
I don't know if Alistair ever dressed like this back in the Day, but I certainly did, oh I shudder at the memory.

Anyway he loves it, and the new Leonard Cohen album I gave him, it's a brilliant album, not so much music to cut your throat to like his older stuff, more country/blue.

I hope you are all well, but kind thoughts and hugs to those who are finding life difficult just now.
Thank you also for all the lovely comments on my CCC snowman card, you are all very kind.

Well I've decided I'm not doing much today, a sort of chill out, have a good day whatever you're doing and see you tomorrow with the Birthday Boy's card.

Hi Kate,
what a super Anniversary card.
I love it and it's so perfectly coloured too.
It's funny how you look at a image and know that's just right for what you want.
I can't tell you how many times I have made a card, and just by chance it's the right image for that person, even though I don't know them.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
