Anniversary Card

I'm loving the pretty Eline's Huis Winter pastels collection at the moment ... the pretty colours remind me more of spring than winter ... I've done a few cards with this pack which I can share in the next few weeks ... mostly DT projects ... but today I have a card for a friend who is celebrating her wedding anniversary 


See how pretty these papers are ... I'm particularly loving the blue 
With all the new releases following CHA ... I can't wait until the UK suppliers get their stock ... I'm loving the Prima ranges and of course Melissa Frances ranges ... 


I guess I really should use up all the papers I have first ... 

On a different note ... do you ever watch a film and it stays with you ... I'm like that with books too ... I plucked up the courage to watch a film the other night called The Last Lions ... you all know I'm a big animal lover ... what I didn't know is that the Lion population has decreased from 450,000  to just 20,000 in the last 50 years ... due to our ever increasing population we are robbing them of their lives and their land ...


This film sees the perilous journey of a lioness ... a mother of 3 cubs and devoted to her mate ... as she fights for survival and to protect her young following an attack of a huge pack of rival lions that saw her mate fatally injured.  It was gut wrenching, brutal, and at times hard to watch ...
Not for the first time I thought just how much we can learn from these beautiful creatures ... their parenting skills ... their love and devotion ... their courage and strength in the face of adversity ... and even the forgiveness she showed to her enemies ... It is a film that will stay with me for a long time to come ....

Thank you for stopping by and for all your sweet comments
Have a lovely weekend
