Happy Saturday to all of you. Wow, this is my 2nd post for the week which is good for me even though I know I should be posting more. Also I have 3 cards - which is also a first for me. I suddenly realized I had 3 anniversaries to make cards for. Unfortunately, my cards never seem to load in the correct positions so I am unsure as to what order they are going to appear. I'm hoping the first one is the Sketch Challenge for Splitcoast Stampers - it's great fun, if you haven't tried it out, please click on the link in the sidebar and check out the site and the challenges - it's a great way to expand your creativity. I made this for my daughter and son-in-law - hope they don't see it before I get it sent.
The other two are similar in that they use the same DP bought at Michaels awhile back, but since they tend to carry the same papers forever, if you like it you may still be able to find it there.
Happy Anniversary is for my in-laws. The CS is Bazzil, the ribbon is from Michaels, and the hardware is from Paper Wishes, although you may be able to find them locally. The stamp is from Treehouse Stamps "Elegant Sentiments".
Mi Amour is for my husband. We will be married 12 years tomorrow - it's been great. I wanted this to be a little more masculine, so I distressed the edges, paper pierced around the DP and then drew in the little lines between the holes. I wanted ribbon, but not a bow, so I played with it and came up with this what-I-feel is a more masculine look and I really like it. It didn't seem finished - a little too plain - so I added some gold stickles to highlight the leaves and acorns. Hope you like them.
Well, I'm off, DH and I are headed down to Apple Hill for apples, asian pears, apple cider and the best of all - apple doughnuts - YUM!!! Have a great weekend and take care.
