A Very Happy Anniversary!

Today My Man and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary. He surprised me by taking me out to dinner at one of my favorite places and he also bought me a box of See's Candy-the coffee lovers box-and he bought US a Wii Fit! We have been together since we were in high school and boy! do we look a lot different than we did in those days! I have been asking for a Wii Fit for a while now and I am really glad to get it. The girls are usually the ones who score software for the Wii. I ordered him a pound of his favorite Pecan Brittle from Ethel M I made him a card too and here it is...



I decided to use another digital stamp from The Greeting Farm. I colored the image with Copics, cut it out, mounted it on foam tape then adhered it to my paper that I cut with Nestabilities Labels One. I had to put a bit of bling on it, so I sugared the heart and put a little jewel in the center of the bow.


And this is how I finished off the inside of the card. The heart brads were not part of my original design, but I got a smude of Juniper ink in a spot where it did not belong, soooo to cover up that little oopsie, I used a heart brad. Well, then the one looked a bit lonely, so I decided to add a few more. Making man cards can be very tricky. But I think this one turned out alright.

Supplies-cardstock:Dark Chocolate, Vintage Cream(PTI). papers:Inspire(Memory Box). digital image:50's Sweethearts(TGF). stamps:Mixed Messages, Out on a Limb Sentiments, Heart Prints(PTI). ink:Chocolate, Juniper(CTMH). punches-scallop circle(Martha Stewart). Ticket Corner(SU!). Other: Nestabilities Dies Labels One(Spellbinders). Dazzling Diamonds(SU!). Copic Markers, Scor-Pal. ribbon, heart brads and jewel are from my stash.

Thank you so much for visiting me today!

Happy, happy Anniversary! What a lovely thought...to be married for 24 years to your sweetheart. Congratulations!

Your card is adorable and had you mentioned an oopsie, I would have just thought you planned to put the hearts on for some extra loveliness.

Enjoy your new Wii Fit!

Happy Anniversary!!!!

You two are so cute together. I love it when you post pics of the two of you.

Cute card too. =) And I'm jealous about the wii fit. I entered a raffle for a wii, but sadly did not win...

You'll have to post your thoughts on it after you get to play.

Congrats on celebrating 24 years together, Barb!! That is really something in today's society! Glad you enjoyed your special day, and the card you made him is so sweet! Don't you just love when the little 'happy accidents' show up and transform your project into something that you would never have dreamed to do but you end up really liking it?!

Hope you enjoy your Wii Fit! ;)

hugs!

Happy Anniversary!

Your card is so awesome! I will have to check out their digital stamps. Great coloring job! I would have never known about the smudge if you wouldn't have written about it. The inside is so nice too! I bet he loved it!

Have fun on your Wii Fit. Don't over do it the first time or you will have really sore legs. I know. LOL!
