Without Words (DT) September: Happy Anniversary

Here we are again gang, the first Monday of September, and you know by now that this heralds a new challenge from WITHOUT WORDS.

When I had the hair-brained idea to start this challenge I wasn't sure how it would be received, but with the most amazing team behind me who have colouring skills beyond my dreams, our loyal sponsors and all our wonderful Followers who have gradually found us, we have now been running for a whole year!  And this leads us nicely to our challenge for September which is HAPPY ANNIVERSARY.

There was a personal reason for setting this theme, not only because it is our challenge anniversary, but in just over two weeks, it will be my wedding anniversary, so a great excuse to make an early start on my card for my beloved Toad.

I have used
Tiddly Inks clear stamp set - Some Bunny
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are from leftovers box
Martha Stewart grass border punch
Sentiment is also from the Some Bunny set

I know this is not a traditional anniversary card - but Toad will understand the thoughts behind it.

I found out that 15th anniversary is supposed to be Crystal but we have had a chat about this and decided that we are changing it.  To Cake!  I like the idea of a Cake anniversary, lol.  That'll be the diet shot down in flames then.

Anyhoo, I hope you are able to join us for our Without Words anniversary celebrations this month - your card doesn't even have to be for a wedding anniversary, it could be for the anniversary of another event, just remember to tell us what it is.

We have the lovely Elaine of Quixotic Paperie sponsoring us again this month, so not only can you have fun, you could win a super prize too!

Remember that for your entry to qualify you will need to follow the rules
A clean and simple design
Handcoloured image
Minimal or no embellishments
Sentiments are allowed

Hugs, Squirrel xx

what a fabulous card for your Anniversary - and love the idea of cake instead of crystal - although both would be nice .. .. a big cake on a crystal glass stand perhaps? Enjoy your day, whatever cake it brings.

Awww! I love this card with the cute little bunnies on it and the patterned grass. I was just thinking the other day that I really need to start using my border punches again and the grass one would be a good place to start!
