All Because Two People Fell in Love...

WHEW!!  It's been a busy, yet SUPER FAST weekend.  WHERE did it go???  We've been busy here with some house projects, hoping to get them wrapped up in our "spare" time, lol.  Making progress, but still a ways to go.

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!!
