Happy Anniversary





Hello everyone!! It's Saturday afternoon and I'm still in my PJ's.... this is a lazy day of stamping...Woot!!! I better get to the shower before hubby comes home so he doesn't turn around and walk out the door again...LOL!!!! I also need to wash a few clothes, run the dishwasher, sweep the kitchen floor, and make the bed but I do have my priorties...stamping first!!!!

I made this card for the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast...Stef found a wonderful store full of Limoges Porcelain Boxes called The Limoges Box Collector.  I especially love this one... Classic Floral Perfume Chest Limoges Box. I needed an anniversary card for my son and his wife so I used a Layers of Color set called Gifts of Love for the sentiment. The Layers of Color store has been closed for a year or so but I still love their stamps!!! The paper is from the Girls Paperie called Vintage Whimsy and I used Die-namics dies for the felt rolled rose and felt leaves. A little sewing, twine, lace, pearls, and the butterfly stick pins finish it off.

This is also for the Natalie and Amy Challenge to use something old (my sentiment stamp) and something new (the butterfly stick pins), The Sparkles Challenge to use lace, and  the Crafty Calender Challenge to make a card for love/marriage.

Thanks for stopping by....have a wonderful day!! Now, I'm off to the shower!!

Silly girl, why make the beds and sweep the floor when tomorrow is so close and if you stay in your pjs, you'll have less laundry! Fabulous card, gorgeous background and the butterfly stickpins are beautiful!
