Gardening and a Sunset

Last year Mizzie's husband asked me to make her a coronavirus themed card for their wedding anniversary. This year he concentrated on what she spent her lockdown time doing, gardening. He sent me a photo of their back garden and also the tools she works with and asked me to show her working there.
I showed Mizzie wearing green gardening gloves, with a plant pot in one hand and a trowel in the other. I carefully cut out paper versions of the tools she uses - a Bosch electric saw and some secateurs - then placed Mizzie in front of the photo of her garden.
"Card turned out great!" her husband wrote to me.
Mizzie also asked me to make a card for her husband on their anniversary. This has become a tradition of theirs and I rather like it! She shared a favourite photo of the two of them and I recreated it in paper. I carefully matched their outfits and added the beautiful sunset in the background. Finally, I popped a red heart onto the card. After all, it was their anniversary!
