Happy Anniversary

My mom and dad are celebrating their 44th wedding anniversary today. 44 Years of love and happiness. It’s wonderful to see that they have been enjoying life. They love spending time together, meeting up with friends and going away on vacation, but they also have their own passtimes. The card I made for them is based on Challenge #10 at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge blog.



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (Raven), Papertrey Ink (Rustic Cream) | Patterned paper: October Afternoon (The Thrift Shop) | Buttons: Buttons Galore & More | Twine: May Arts | Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps (Very Vintage Labels No. 10), Papertrey Ink (Background Basics: Hearts, Heart Prints) | Tools: Papertrey Ink Medium Scalloped Border Die, Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Ten, sewing machine | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo, Vintage Cream), Tsukineko Memento (Tuxedo Black) | Other: ribbon, lace, foamtape

The girls went back to school this morning and I can't wait to hear their stories.

Have a wonderful day!
