Good morning Friends, Followers and callers by..

Special day for my husband and myself...  Today it`s

Does not seem 50 years since our wedding day.. 

I made us this keepsake MDF heart, rather than a card to put away in a box.

This heart is 8" x 8".. sentiment was done on my computer.. I used Acetate to print the sentiment..Then added "Wow Twinkling Lights" embossing powder and heat embossed with my heat gun. Cut with Memory box..Open Studio "Crossed Stitched My Heart" die.. this was adhered onto a white heart.

Flowers are the new "Heartfelt creations"  Blazing Poppy Petals stamps and  Blazing Poppy Die.
embossed with Wow as above.
Stick pins I made.

Foliage in the flowers Lorelai leaf and  Grape Vine by memory box.
Stickles dry fine Glitter around the heart edge.

..Husband and myself..

This photo was taken in March on my 70th birthday, we took our family for a meal..lovely night..

Thank you for calling by and any comment you leave, really appreciate them.. Pam x
