Hello everyone!!!  I am trying to keep up with everything but it has been difficult.  Monday was my nieces birthday and I have yet to make her a card and get her a present.  Today is a special day as well.  Today is the day (32 years ago) that my parents said their vows in front of friends and family and God.  I am so proud to say that my parents are still married after all these years.
Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!!!
Now if you don't want to see your card then I would suggest leaving the blog for a few days as it just got out in the mail.
Yep, another thing I am late on.  I got their card made yesterday.  I have to admit too, I did not come up with this concept.  I basically stole the layout from Lorie from Live-Love-Laugh-Create.  Lorie got her basic layout from the CPS challenge for this week which is being sponsored by Flower Soft.
The card base is 4 X 8 1/2 made from rustic cream cardstock.  I used ocean tides ink and sponged around the entire edge.  Then used ocean tides cardstock cut at 4 X 3 1/2 stamped using Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink and PTI background basics: hearts.  Now, I have to tell you.  I finally bought the PTI background basics: text style stamp that I have been wanting since it came out and planned on using it right away.  Since I was making an anniversary card though, I thought the love sentiment on the hearts set made more sense.  The hearts from the same set were stamped using vintage cream ink.  The ribbon, button and twine are some I had in my stash.  Then I used Martha Stewarts border bunch with dark chocolate cardstock for the bottom.
The sentiment was made with kraft cardstock and stamped with the newest PTI anniversary set, round and round with fresh snow ink and colorbox chalk dark chocolate ink.
Well, I think that about does it.  I hope my parents love it as much as I love how it turned out.  I also hope they are able to enjoy a wonderful night or day out for their anniversary.
I love you Mom and Dad, here is to another 32 years of wedded bliss!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!!
