A lifetime of love

Tomorrow is a rather special 36th Wedding Anniversary! Goodness knows where those years have gone but they have been the best of years.  I am lucky to have met and married my soul mate and been blessed with a lifetime of love.

We have a special treat planned..lunch at the Sky Garden in London and yes of course I will be taking my trusty camera away with me.

Today is my weekly inspiration post for Visible Image. I think that the sentiment I used for my card sums up how many people feel about the love of their lives...... however I was just one of those lucky ones who found mine when I was just eighteen 😍
I also used the time swirl, falling man and lady, the past stamp and the birds from the amazing Ahead of our time set.
I made an Infusions background
and used some very glittery WOW gold embossing powder to emboss the time swirl...
I then stamped the birds emerging from the end of the swirl. 

I embossed and fussy cut the man and lady and had them falling from the past stamp. I die cut some clock hands and turned my time swirl into a clock where the man has grabbed onto the the hands to "turn back time" and find his love sooner. 
Here are some close ups.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

  8. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving such a thoughtful comment. When I hit publish, I saw "comment rejected" so I must have clicked the wrong button, and I apologize for that. Your card is just over the top for me, with the man and woman falling and lost in time! The sentiment is quite profound and I love the whole concept of this amazing card! Happy anniversary - may you enjoy many more in the future as well!

  9. Happy Anniversary to you both. Brilliant card and I finally managed to get the sentiment stamp.
