23 years of LOVE

Click on link to see digi stamp!

I am having so much fun designing and creating handcrafted greeting cards.  For those of you who are new to blogging and crafting, the Paper Crafting World Design Team creates handcrafted greeting cards, scrapbook pages, altered items, ect. using cutting files and digi stamps from the Paper Crafting World collection.  We are here to show you a variety of different ways that these products can be used and just how easy it is to make simple, yet beautiful, handcrafted items.

I love crafting for a cause and this week's inspiration is my husband Larry.  On Sunday we will be celebrating our 23rd wedding anniversary.  Here is how we looked on July 21, 1990.

And here is how we look 23 years later at our oldest son's wedding nearly one month ago.

Happy Anniversary Wo!  I love you.  We have been blessed with an amazing family.  

So here is one of the cards I am giving to Larry.  I love making cards for him.  This QT Patootie Digi Stamp from is the center of attention on this card.  She is holding onto a balloon made of wire and a heart charm.  These items give the card dimension without giving it too much fluff.  I think because they are made of wire and silver they go with a masculine card.  What do you think? 
For those of you that are new to card making, this is an easel card.  That means it sits up and can be displayed just like it is being shown here.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
FCCB- Challenge # 169 - Set the Scene -
( "23" Pooh Font Set Cricut Cartridge) 

Time to head out the door to work.  Thursdays are a busy day for me.  As you know by now...
I am More Than a Mother.

Until next time.
