Bluebell Woods + Wedding Bells

This morning after my mum and I dropped off the children at school we drove to Banstead Woods to find the Bluebells. I can tell you they didn't disappoint, but my photography failed miserably. Not until I got home and was looking at the pictures I realised what I should have done differently. Luckily the woods are nearby, so I think I will go back on another day.

Even though I wasn't too happy with the images, I don't want to withhold you from the amazing view of the purple carpet.

This variety of Bluebells is a lot smaller than the ones that bloom in our front garden.

I loved how the morning sun shone through these leaves.

Besides Bluebells, it's also wedding bells season again. Not in the sense of people getting married around me, but family and friends celebrating their anniversary. Today, David's eldest brother and his wife are celebrating their 9th anniversary. On the day they got married we were unable to attend, as we lived Oregon at the time and I'd given birth to Ruben just 4 weeks prior to the event. This is the card I made for them:

Supplies: Bazzill Basics Cardstock kraft | SEI Patterned Paper | Making Memories Patterned Paper + Brads | ribbon unknown | Papertrey Ink clear stamps Damask Designs | VersaMark ink | StampWorld embossing powder Psychedelic| Rangers embossing powder Red | brad black unknown | Martha Stewart border punch Hearts.

That's all for today.

Gorgeous card, Lisette. You always do so well on anniversary cards (well, actually on all cards *wink*). They all are so stylish.
