One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Anniversary Cards

 I had a request for some anniversary cards, so since it was in the high 90's today, I thought it was a perfect time to stay indoors and play!
For my inspiration I went to sweetkobylkin and did what she did to a Hero Arts stamp, but I used an Altenew Stamp called:  Best Mom
 I stamped it and cut it out with a Li'l Inkers Stitched rectangle, then I colored in the flowers.  I fussy cut the two little buds and adhered them off the page.  I gold embossed the sentiment (Gina K: Rose Peonies) and placed it on a PTI soft stone card with fun foam.
This one was done with partial die cutting and colored with copics.  I did use a PTI garden gate stencil for a little extra pattern for the card base.
Check out the other two cards made by Ksenija using the same stamp...I think tomorrow I may just make two more cards.  She is very talented and I thank her for the inspiration!
Now it is time for bed!
Have a wonderful weekend friends!

Heart Hugs, friends!

  4. Oh wow, friend, you have been busy with all the cards on this page. Love them all. That first one is gorgeous. And I love the one on the blue card stock and colored with pencils. They were all fantastic....
