Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad!

Today is my Mom & Dad's anniversary. They have been happily married for 43 years! I am so proud of them for making it this far.

This year I decided to change things up a bit and I made them each a card. First up is my dads card. I love how the card turned out. My theme was clocks (as if you couldn't tell) because my dad loves them. The clock in the top right corner if from Tim Holtz and I had it set for the exact time I entered into his life. The sentiment is from My Creative Time (click on her button on my side bar you won't be disappointed!). I just love her stamps!! I don't think I can say that enough. It's as if she reads my mind sometimes with the sentiments she comes up with. The one I used for this card is "My Dad my best friend" (now who doesn't need that one). The gears are from Tim Holtz as well. I used brads from the same collection as the paper which by the way is from Bo Bunny called "Timepiece". I also sprayed the gear with my awesome Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst spray for some awesome shimmer. Love my Lindy's!

Okay now to my Mom's Card:

My mom loves butterflies so I made that the theme of her card. The sign die cut if from Tim Holtz too. I just love this die! The sentiment if from PaperTrey Ink. The butterflies are from a punch by Martha Stewart. I used my Stickles and Glossy Accents to give them a little shine and shimmer. The paper collection I used is from DVWV called Mariposa. The trim at the bottom is from my favorite store Hobby Lobby (and if you are reading this Hobby Lobby put one close by me!!) The cherry blossoms flowers in the corner are from

Well I think that about covers it. I hope you like my post and feel free to comment or become a follower!
