Happy Anniversary!

 

Hola Stampy Friends!

 

How was your weekend?  I had an absolutely BLAST!!  My sister and BIL were here for the weekend, and we had a fun-filled time with them.  Lots of pool time, BINGO, gambling, eating out, and looking at model homes (we’re trying to talk them into buying a house down here).  I think a good time was had by all!

Happy Anniversary

I’m popping in really quick today to share a card that I made for my sweet friend and her husband in celebration of their first anniversary.  I SUCK at gift buying, especially when a bride and groom don’t register.  Needless to say, I never got my friends a wedding gift.  Thankfully, Emily Post says that I have a year to get them something . . . yeah, I’m STILL late – Emily is probably rolling over in her grave!!  LOL  But I finally got my act together and made a card to go along with their gift.  Hopefully they like both the card and the gift.

 

I used the new Tessatina Border Die from Memory Box that I featured on this card the other day.  I was inspired by THIS card created by Julie Ebersol.  I really liked how she used the die as a negative and left the open space for the sentiment.  The sentiment is from the Paper Smooches stamp set called Good Gab.  I stamped it in white pigment ink, and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  Oh, and notice that the sentiment is stacked – I cut the clear acrylic and stamped it like that.  That’s one thing that I LOVE about clear stamps!!

That’s it for me today, friends!  I’ll be celebrating my friend’s birthday today – lunch at a yummy restaurant and a shopping spree at the Container Store – HEAVEN ON EARTH, I tell ya!!  Hope you’re having a great day!!  I’ll be back tomorrow with a project for the i {heart} Papers Design Team Challenge – hope to see you then!
