Anniversa-trees!
Happy Anniversary to my lovely Mr Hippy. It's our 5th Anniversary today. I won't tell you how we met, but our first proper date was at a gorgeous country pub on a beautiful clear evening five years ago today - the stars were out and it was crisp and cold. We had a wonderful evening and vowed to meet again.

It became clear that we both loved nature and the outdoors. So our third date, this time in daylight hours, was a lovely walk on a crisp autumn day. We went back to the same spot at the weekend for another walk, and it was a beautiful day just like all those years ago.

Today's project 
To celebrate our special day I paid for a tree to be dedicated to us, and it has been planted in a woodland in Surrey, very close to where we first met. Of course the card had to be tree themed, too.

To make today's card you will need the Lovely As A Tree stamp set, which is also available in Wood Mount. You can use 'normal' colours if my eccentric colour combinations are too much for you!

Watch the Tutorial
You'll find everything you need to make this project listed below, just follow the video for instructions. You don't need the Stamp-a-majig (now retired) for this project, you can stamp using your eye, or with the Stamparatus if you have one.




Here's a very happy anniversary to Mr Hippy, thank you for all you have done over the years, especially your support with Stampin' Up! I love you very much! xxx
