Art Deco Anniversary Card"

Hello Everyone, I hope all is well with you and that your weather has not broken as ours has, foggy, drizzly and dark today. Not all that cold, just damp.
However, out we went for a lovely walk and a bit of lunch to celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary, always a bit overshadowed by Alistair's birthday tomorrow, so another celebration as he will be 70 years young. Here is the card I made for him;
This is how I like to think of us, in my dreams!!
Here is what we are like for real;
First selfie I've ever taken, don't know if will bother with another one LOL.

For my card I used a DoCraft image and papers from their Art Deco pad, gold card and SN Pens.
Now spookily, Alistair's card to me is an Art Deco couple too.

Our walk took us along Loch Duntelchaig, which is one of the Lochs that give Inverness our beautiful water, the colours of the trees just now are gorgeous, here are photos of both sides of the Loch;

We enjoyed the scenery, but enjoyed even more getting back home and putting the feet up, it really is a day for cosying indoors.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments on yesterdays card, It has arrived at Dale's and she is delighted with it, so it will be given to her sister at the weekend when there is a family co for Rachel's birthday, I'm sure she will like it.
Thanks too for the help regarding making the boxes, I do use my CC box maker, but you still need to measure so that the card fits into it. So Pam your instructions made sense, thank you, I might managed to make them quicker now.

Off  now to have a look at your blogs, see you all soon and take care,

A super elegant card Kate, I'm sure hubby will love it. I think your selfie is great, I take really bad selfies so don't take them! LOL.
Your walk looks beautiful and very autumnal, we are so lucky to live where we do. I can see from your photo how packed with people the area was! ;)
