If you read my post for Saturday September 3rd, then you will be familiar with this pattern I've been using for creating cards this month. I find it to be great fun to see how may variations I can come up with using different materials.
The 3 papers used in today's card are especially fun because they have unique finishes. The tan paper on the left has a shine or sparkle to it, satin one might say. The dark brown paper is almost a fabric, like suede. The 2 diamond-shapes are also from an almost-fabric pink paper that has gold raised dots.
All the papers came from JoAnn's Fabrics & Crafts. The flower stickers came from Ancestry.com and the "Love is Patient" sticker came from a package produced by Punch Studio (a gift to me from PB, who shops at Lifeway, the Southern Baptist bookstore).
|Happy Anniversary stamp from Archivers|
This card was given to Milk Maid and Stone, who are celebrating 41 years of marriage this weekend by riding a zip line and a river raft trip somewhere in Colorado. They've had an especially challenging past year with heart surgery, broken bones, the passing of 2 beloved pets and the welcoming of 2 younger pets (and all that entails!), as well as caring for aging parents and the unexpected loss of a dear friend.
While I would not want to try out the daring feats they have planned to celebrate life and love, no one can blame them for wanting to cut loose!
Happy Anniversary -- you two are the berries in our life!
