Happy Anniversary

Happy Hump day friends, we are almost to the weekend! Today Mr. Wonderful and I are celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary! Wow, how time flies when you are having fun!! There is never a day that goes by that we haven’t made each other laugh. He is truly my best friend and soul mate!

I have never made a Halloween themed anniversary card but this year Stampin’ Up!’s Monster Bash Suite from the Holiday Catalog was screaming with ideas. The inside is stamped with various sentiments from the Well Said stamp set found in the Annual Catalog.

Magical Mermaid

Cheers to Friday, friends! How did your week go? It was a short but extremely busy one at work, glad the weekend came around quick! Let’s get down to business with today’s magical card, it was created by Joyce Boylan for our recent demonstrator meeting. She used the netting from Under the Sea dies and the fish were die cut then we used the negative piece to sponge onto the cardstock. These dies can be found on page 197 of the Annual Catalog. The mermaid was created with watercolor pencils and once dried, I did a quick brush with the Wink of Stella pen for a shimmery effect on her tail. Stunning in real life!
