Anyway -- onto my post. A few months ago, my in-laws celebrated their 45th Wedding Anniversary. A pretty big deal, especially now a days. I decided to make a card that would emphasize the importance of that 45.
I pulled out the Papertrey Ink By the Numbers dies, and cut a 4 and a 5, ran them through my xyron and then poured glitter all over them...I mean really, aside from blinking lights (which could come in the future, I'll have to top this in 5 years, HA!) what better than glitter to catch your eye??
Layered the 45 onto some die cuts (1.75" limitless layers, and Mat Stack 4) - and accented with the largest flourish from Fancy Flourishes that was embossed with clear ep. Finished it off with the sentiment 'amazing years'. From Big Birthday Wishes.
I say amazing, because we ALL got together that day, and took a photo of the whole family...take a look at what has been accomplished in 45 years...and smile.
Have a great day!!

When I saw the inspiration photo for today's blog hop...I was...well, inspired ;). What a FUN picture, full of color and life. Of course, my daughters want their room painted like this now...
I decided to play with my copics and my airbrush, and made my take on the "wall". I added a piece of white, cut with Mat Stack #4, with my sentiment from Think Big Favorites #1 stamped in Basic Gray ink. Then gave it a splash of interest with some felt flowers cut with my Beautiful Blooms II #3 dies and a little bling.
Thanks for dropping by, have a GREAT weekend!!
