BC171 Bloggers Challenge Anniversary
Anyway, it's been a busy (but fun) week and I'm so glad that the bloggers challenge post this week is for a card I had already just made. Sometimes life works out! The challenge this week is anniversary and Bob and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary on Tuesday so here is the card I made for him. If you want to see photos of us through the years look at Wednesdays post. It's chock full of photos (one for every 5 years of marriage!)
For this card, I decided to go with the sunshine theme. I also used my new Sew Mini sewing machine for the first time. To make this, I used the circle nestie to get a big circle and then just cut out squares (and then triangles) to make the edges of the sun. I used summer sun and a great DSP (retired) with summer sun & chocolate chip. I had a few summer sun corduroy buttons left over from last years goodies and added in a nice brown gingham to round it out. The sentiment is a new favorite of mine from PTI. I love the bold script and the sentiment is just my thoughts exactly. I also could have done my A*Muse 'you are my sunshine' but for my hubby, this seemed a little more classy and fitting for the 25th anniversary.
I hope I get a little smoother with my sewing with experience. It's not awful, but I think I can do better next time. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a love note!
