Happy Anniversary

Hello and Happy Friday! Who is happy it's Friday? I am! I am! I am definitely ready to start my weekend! However, this weekend we will be changing our clocks back, which I have been dreading for months! It means my hour long drive home from work will be in the dark and the deer will literally be lined up along the highway! I have never hit a deer, and I really hope and pray I never do! But it seems that everyone around here eventually does at some point, and the thought of it scares the heck out of me! Let's move on to something a little more cheery, shall we? My mother-in-law and father-in-law celebrated their 40th Wedding Anniversary a couple weeks ago, so I made them this card:
I used some pretty Echo Park, Victoria Gardens paper, some Papertrey Ink stamps and dies and the button, and I finally used some beautiful seam binding ribbon I'd gotten from a super sweet Papertrey forum friend. My husband and I will be celebrating our 3rd Wedding Anniversary on Tuesday, so I have a few things I'll be working on for him this weekend!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Make It Monday #39

Good Morning! I am just stopping in to share a card I made last night for this weeks Make It Monday. This is actually my first time participating in Make It Monday! I have always wanted to, but just never seem to get it together to play along...this week I decided to change that! I actually came home from work last night with this card in my head, and got it done from start to finish! Something else I never seem to do during the week! The challenge this week was to use your stamps to make your own background paper, and this is what I cam up with:
I used the solid and outline leaf images and acorns from Gobble, Gobble, as well as the leaf and acorn from Tag It's #7 to fill in a little more. The sentiment is also from Gobble, Gobble. The paper is Ocean Tides, Harvest Gold, and Rustic Cream. I thought, or my husband thought it needed something else, so I put those little leaves in the corner, that I have had in my stash for ever! That's all for now!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
