Happy Anniversary!


Hello there...I'm going to keep this short and sweet today.  I met my mum for dinner and Christmas shopping after work on Tuesday...and I'm tired, but I do have a couple of cards to share with you.  My mum asked me to make an anniversary card for my aunt and uncle.  So...I played along with A Passion for PaperTrey. It has been way too long since I played along with the fabulous team over there and I loved the inspiration photo shown below.


But before I made that card, I made this card using the current CASE This Sketch.  I wasn't thrilled with the card or the colors I choose...so I made the card above and that is the one that was sent to them!  You can let me know which one you like better.

  15. Both awesome, but I do like the red one better, too. My parents anniversary is tomorrow and I was just thinking I'd like something in holiday type colors, though not a holiday theme, KWIM? :) Hope you are having a great week, Lynn! xo
