 over from the lovely
But first
I have to wish my wonderful husband a 
Happy 9 th Wedding Anniversary
Love you xx

Right on to business here is my card

I have used the 
The sponsor for my part of the blog hop is
Many thanks
and one lucky comment leaver will win 
$10 gift certificate to spend
(don't forget to leave a comment on each of the blogs as we all have prizes,when you have guessed the rhyme there is even a prize on the main blog)

The theme if you haven't already guessed is 
So what did I do
1. Use  a 7 x 7 card blank 
2.  Backing layers Silver miri ,blushing bride card, grey flower paper.
3. Sizzix cake die cut from Centura pearl card with a touch of Silver

I was asked to make a wedding card so I used the one I had made and personalised it.
The reason for the baseball bat is that they intend to break up their wedding cake !!!!!

As I have already told you we got married 9 years ago, today.

Steve is my third husband , and I his 3rd wife.
Well my excuse is I don't suffer fools lol
or I just hadn't found the right one . 
Hopefully this time I have.
It  certainly was the best of the 3  wedding days.
 Each wedding was totally different
  from the white wedding dress in the 80's (1985)
to a peach suite in the 90's (1996)
to how you see me in the 00's (2004) 
We only had a small do with close friends,
after we went to a local tearoom 
for our meal
 and it was all over for 2.30 pm.
If you have guessed my special word 
 for the rhyme on 
then hop on over to the lovely
to finish the rhyme.

If not here is a little more of a clue
SILVER is a sign of Purity, chastity and eloquence.
In European folklore, SILVER was considered a mystical element, and much like Cold Iron, was considered something of an problem for the supernatural. The myth of silver's mystical properties goes deep into human history. Silver is believed to have purifying effects, a belief that likely arose from the observation that water kept in a silver pitcher took longer to go scummy; in real-life, silver has been shown to have some minor antibacterial properties.
