I usually dread making an anniversary card because my card making is not elegant. I make cute cards that is just what I do so to think of an elegant anniversary card is really a challenge but I actually really enjoyed making this card for my husband and when I saw the stamptacular Sunday challenge it gave me an idea. There challenge was to put a tag somewhere on your card and I decided to make a list of ten things I love about my husband and make it into a tag and put it on the inside. Sorry ladies the list isn't filled out yet. It may not be for young viewers LOL. The bird stamps are by Inkadinkado and the sentiment is by Fiskars. Oh and it is our twelve year anniversary so that is the reason for the 12's throughout the card. The challenge is here http://stamptacularsundaychallenge.blogspot.com/ and our anniversary is Oct 4.
This card was made for my daughter's blog challenge http://www.alyssundaychallenge.blogspot.com/ She is such a talented artist and the ladies at my Sweet Dreamers blog group decided to play this week also. I was going to do a Halloween theme card but thought it might look alot like Aly's because we have the same paper and embellishments so I thought for awhile and anyone who knows Aly knows she loves gingerbread so I remembered this little set I got awhile back from Cornish Heritage Farms so I went with the gingerbread theme. I love this stamp because you can color it and most gingerbread stamps are like a shadow stamp and to me don't stamp well. Thanks for looking

What a proud mommy I am. My ten year old now has her own challenge blog. She is so excited about it. What kind of Mommy would I be if I didn't make my own card for her first challenge.

The stamps are all by Inkadinkado. The paper is Rock Star by DCWV. Thanks for looking and please check out her new challenge blog. http://www.alyssundaychallenge.blogspot.com/ Thanks

I had to turn this sketch horizontal because it didn't work vertically with the image that I wanted to use.

I love owls so when they say feathered friends this is what I think of . I got this little cutie this week from JessicaLynn Originals.

I need more of this stuff I love it. The challenge can be found here. http://skattykatschallengeandnews.blogspot.com/ I forgot to mention this sketch is by card sketches challenge blog.
