Love & Marriage…

Yesterday was my husband’s and my 11th wedding anniversary! It’s hard to believe we have been married that long, we dated nearly 3 years before we got hitched too, my how time files! I made him this card to celebrate:


The sexy couple on the card is a stamp from About Art Accents (save 10% with the coupon Lindsay10%) the set of stamps is called Best Day and it is on sale for $9.99 and the postage is only .75 cents, I love it that they don’t gouge you on postage. 🙂 The sentiment I found on the internet, it sums up my feelings perfectly:


I used a variety of my alcohol based markers for coloring. I picked up a pack of the new skin tone Spectrum markers by Crafter’s Companion on sale a month ago, I used them to color the skin. Both times I used them they felt really dry, I know the lighter alcohol markers often don’t feel as juicy as the darker ones but these were really dry.  Has anyone else had that problem or did I get a bum pack?


I wanted a little extra “oomph” around the couple so I stenciled a border for a stencil book I have, easy peasy! The rolled flowers are a Quilled Creations die (set of 3) I grabbed with a coupon. They had a whole display of quilling products at ACmoore the last time I was in and that makes me really happy because I love quilling and I am glad it is getting popular again!

In case you are wondering what we did for our anniversary, we went ti dinner, a movie and hit the batting cages…as they say growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional! Til next time happy crafting!

  2. Have you found it to be true that the best remedy for an argument is Compromise, the question is when does the or who does the compromizing. This is a Lovely Card, the colors patterns, it all tells how you feel, so how could it not be GREAT. I bet he oved it, esp knwing that this IS,…just one of the things that U R Sooo good at!

    I love the image on the card. It’s so beautiful and erotic. The whole card is beautiful.

    I heard Spectrum Noir’s are drying out fast. I don’t have any. I have been hearing that it’s a common problem.
