anniversary day!


Happy day! Today is our third wedding anniversary! Roger and I got married here in Vancouver at Heritage Hall in 2006... wow, seems like only yesterday (insert dreamy sigh here). Here is a pic of our wedding card that we illustrated together and the mini button magnet sets we made as wedding favors.... the whole event had a pink and chocolate brown theme. We googled to see what the traditional third anniversary theme would be (1st is paper, 2nd is cotton), and found out year #3 is... leather?! I know everyone is snickering right now... 'cause that's what we did too. Anyhoo, we will be heading out to a nice dinner tonight to celebrate... can't wait! 

ps. thanks to Lori for featuring one of my prints on her blog So I was Thinking today!

Love this post. I've been hoping to make some buttons and magnets too.

Thanks for linking my blog...I ended up featuring you the same time as a friend of mine who writes The Jealous Curator did. Great minds think alike I guess.

Hollyrocks said...

I hope you two had a wonderful anniversary! Your wedding sounds like it was very pretty, and I think it's sweet that you designed the cards and favors yourselves.

Have fun with your leather gifts to each other, hehe. ;-)
