A Card, A Card, I Made A Card!!!!

For those of you that know me, you know this is a big deal! I can only hope this sets us on the path towards a lot more cards being made! The occasion that sparked this momentous day? My Grandparent's 40th wedding anniversary. I would say that is a pretty good reason, wouldn't you??

I must say I am pretty proud of how the card turned out, especially since it has been a year since I have done any considerable card making. Ready to take a look??

I had purchased a "Love is patient" stamp with the intentions of using it for the wedding. Those plans changed a little. So this awesome stamp was still sitting on the shelf unused and felling far from loved. A 40th anniversary card seemed like a great time to give this stamp some love!

The pieces! 
40th anniversary is the ruby anniversary.
So I chose red, black, and white.
Sharp colors when put together!

The card base is 5x7.
I cut the red layer at 4 1/2 x 6 1/2.
The ribbon is by Darice.
The Love is Patient stamp is by Stampabilities.

I brought the outside colors in!
The love birds in the bird cage is from Valentine Favorites by Inkadinkado.
I started to sign the card before I remembered I hadn't taken a picture of the inside. oopsie!

My new stamp is in the middle.
"This card was made by hand
If you throw it away those same 
hands will make a doll in your
image and stick pins in its butt."
he he he he!!!!!
My Grandfather wanted to know if I would really do that to him??
I told him he probably didn't need to worry about it since his wife keeps the cards. ;)

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs from my small town to wherever you may be in the world!
