It's My Anniversary! (Oct. 21, 2011)

That's right! My hubby and I were married 23 years ago today! Wow, sure sounds like a long time but doesn't feel that way. I wanted to share the card I made for him. It's not very manly but that's okay, he knows I have a tough time with cards for guys. :)

I used some paper from the Studio Calico, Memoir, 6x6 pack for my background. The smaller panel was done by using the layered, emboss resist technique. It's not easy to see, but La Letter is white embossed behind the butterflies. I love brown and pink together - actually it's Tattered Rose distress ink, which is more of a peachy color. The sentiment is a fun one from the Hero Arts/Studio Calico clear set called, My Happy. Hope he likes it!



I have a couple of special things I'm working on but am not able to share with you yet. (I must admit, I read that statement all the time on other people's blogs and it sure is nice to be able to write it on my own!) It's exciting stuff and I can't wait to tell you!

It's been a cold week here but we're rising back into the 60's for the next few days and I, for one, am going to enjoy it! Hope everyone has a great weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by! :)
