Peas In A Pod

Good morning everyone.
I hope you are all well!
I've just finished up work for a week & we're having a little 
stay-cation here in our lovely city of Edinburgh!
If I get any good pics, I'll share them with you!
Now, todays card is a sweet & simple little Anniversary card,

The image I have used was taken by a friend of mine, Ana,
who kindly gave me permission to use it on a card & to blog it!
Thanks Ana, I love you & your pic too as you already know!
I was inspired by the YNS Sketch & photo inspiration 

Two little peas nestling in a pod! So sweet & a little cheesy! lol
The checked paper was from Craftwork Cards, the textured greem is from
American Crafts & the Kraft is from Southfield Stationers

I made up a little verse for the inside . I can't share it with you
just yet but I might do soon! The font I used is Pea Aimee,
you can download it or free here. The twine is recycled from a tag
that was on a top I bought. I often by this brand of clothing
& I love using the twine on cards as it gives a great rustic feel!
 The buttons are from my stash!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great day!

  1. Hi Dawn, I am dying to get to the festival this year, not been a good week, for pain, might still get there and am glad you are enjoying Edinburgh, as it should be enjoyed, love this city...

    Onto your card, LOL, fabulous hun, so cute, and will be greatly received...our Challenge at Emma's Crafty Challenge is "Floral". The anniversary was a one off using Kanban Products, which is now closed....Emma has been on holiday and maybe has not let you know on Paper Playfulness that it is closed, I did see it on the challenges the other day...maybe you can take it off, hun, or change it to Floral xxx

  2. I hope you have a fabulous week off and looking forward to seeing some of your stunning Photographs.

    A simply gorgeous anniversary card Dawn, love the topper and the sentiment is fabulous.
