Love For You


I am happy to announce that my husband's parents are celebrating their 60th Wedding Anniversary! Wow! What an amazing married life that they have lived so far! Congratulations to them!

I wanted to create something spectacular for their 60th.... the theme for 60th is diamonds... so I knew I was going to use some rhinestones on it.   My card measures 5x5. I found Amanda Bates' card on Pinterest, and loved her layout and design, so I re-created her card using the brushed silver cardstock (I know silver is for 25th wedding anniversary, but it worked well with my rhinestones!).
Here is Amanda's card:
Thanks Amanda for your inspiration!

Happy 60th Wedding Anniversary Momma and Pop!

Time For Flowers

For my hubby on our anniversary! Celebrating 14 years! I love you honey!

I utilized 3 different stamp sets for this card: Falling Flowers for the black vine and red flowers; Time of Year for the banner 'Always'; and Flourishing Phrases for the words 'I Love You'.

I love how it all came together so easily. I was not going to add the the vine is pretty on it's own, but with the added flowers it just steps it up with the wow factor!

I pray that we are blessed with many more years together!

Princess Ledges Calendar Page

With the coming of cooler weather comes the beautiful color display of leaves where I live. We hiked a little park near our new home...and saw a few leaves changing. The park which showcase a huge shale ledge...prevalent here in Ohio. It was a lovely walk...and we hope to go back when we can showcase all the beautiful colored leaves too.

This will be the October page for my 2017 Calendar. Which will show all the places we've seen in 2016.

Thanks for taking a look!

Supplies Used:
My Memories Suite digital software

Swirly Banner

Okay, so I have a confession to make... when I got the stamp set "Swirly Birds" I was perplexed as to what to use the 2 double triangle stamps for... I couldn't figure it out.  Luckily, other Stampin' Up! demonstrators figured it out and posted cards using those 2 stamps - whew!  They were used for making kites! LOL!

I'm happy to say that I was able to play with them, and came up with this great card!

I also used the Perfectly Artistic DSP for the background. I believe it's a fitting background for the kites!

Thanks for stopping by!

Flourishing Banner

I'd like to tell you how this card evolved. I originally thought to just place the white die-cut on top of the peach cardstock with the banner below.  It looked too plain to me. I then thought that the negative piece would look good on top of the peach cardstock with a black mat behind... I did like that, but felt it was missing something. I decided to add the die-cut piece back onto the opening BUT... offsetting it a bit, so it looks like a shadow! Lovely!
