Card Week 23/”the marriage of true minds”

I didn’t go with the card challenge for today although I will do it at some point this week. Instead I thought I would share the card I made for my friends, they married on Friday and it was the most lovely day.

I used my lovely new eclips to cut the hearts in a variety of sizes in no time at all.
So the Shakespeare quote this week had to be about love. I especially admire the line love is not love, which alters when it alteration finds. I have been thinking a lot about that over the weekend after hearing them making their vows.
Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
O no, it is an ever-fixèd mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wand'ring bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken

Sonnet 116.
If you wanted a quick glimpse of the wedding it is on my photo challenge blog here.
I hope you are enjoying the Jubilee celebrations, I have finally finished working for the weekend and have this evening and tomorrow to enjoy the celebrations. I have just heard that Prince Phillip has gone to hospital so that is sad news. I imagine the Queen would rather not be at the concert tonight.
