Happy Anniversary !

With DH's birthday over it is now our Wedding Anniversary ! We have been married for 14 years this Wednesday.

Again, it was difficult trying to think of a design for a male anniversary card but I love the simplicity of the Hero Arts cards on their blog and decided to go for "that look". I hope you and he like it !

The base card is from the Woodware kraft card pack I have.

The DP is BasicGrey Offbeat.

The flourish stamp is Hero Arts Heart Flourish which I bought with a whole pile of Hero Arts goodies from Simon Says Stamp. I stamped it with walnut stain distress ink.

The metal flower and leaves are Tim Holtz Foliage which I also bought from Simon Says Stamp.

The ribbon was from Cleo Crafts.

The heart charm was from Ebay and the other charm I made from shrink plastic. I attached these with jump rings to the ribbon.

The sentiment is a Melissa Frances sentiment from a set of her clear stamps. I also stamped this in walnut stain distress ink and inked the edges with weathered wood distress ink.

I also simply decorated the inside :

The blue card is Core'dinations.

The journalling stamp is by Little Yellow Bicycle and is great because you can change the corners to whatever suits the occasion and this one was "sloppy" !!! I also stamped this with walnut stain distress ink and inked the edges with weathered wood distress ink.

We had a great time for DH's birthday and it was lovely just the four of us celebrating. We had a lovely day out to Bowood on Thursday as Ski had a TD day, Friday we went out for lunch, had lots of visitors and had a takeaway in the evening and on Saturday he had his "Parrot" fitted in the car so he was jumping around all over the house like something possessed as he was so excited !!!

Thank you for your visit and for all your lovely comments. Don't forget to join in my blog candy, it finishes on Wednesday morning and I will see you back here on Wednesday morning for not only the draw of my blog candy but also the next Simon Says Challenge.

Take care and hugs to all !
