Love is the air

The wedding season is here and I want to show you a card that I made for my nephew (and now neice in law) who got married last Saturday. Sadly we couldn't go to the wedding as they live in the US but our thoughts and hearts were with them as they made their vows. Isn't love grand?

This Lili of the Valley image "Love Grows" suits the occasion just perfectly, don't you think? Aren't they cute together?
My husband will probably laugh at this image because when it comes to gardening, I suck! I just don't see what needs to be done and he has to drag me out of the house and tell me exactly what he wants me to do! But the symbol of the image is what counts - working together - come sunshine or rain and not forgetting that love needs to be watered and trimmed and looked after otherwise it will wilt and die.We wish the new bride and groom all the love in the world as they start their journey together!

Well, I'm off to get ready as we're going to a wedding apéro this afternoon - as I said, it's the wedding season and LOVE IS IN THE AIR!
