Happy Anniversary & Happy Birthday!

It's Monday.
Rainy, and dreary, and cold Monday's make me want to create something! How about you?

We had a movie date with another couple last night. They had an Anniversary of 43 years, so we wanted to take them a card.  I had seen a card like this one by Monika Davis, and sketched out the general idea. I knew it was exactly what I wanted to use for this card.  I've tried for over an hour today to find the link to this card, but can't seem to find it.  Please do check out Monika's blog - she's a wonderful artist, and I enjoy each and every one of her posts!  You can find her blog HERE.  Monika's card had some pretty pearls, but I decided to leave it very simple!

Hammermill White 100# CS, Michael's $1 bin stamp, lace from local craft shop, musical scrap from DCWV paper pack, rose from JoAnn's crafts, Red DP and Black Baker's twine from Amuse Studio.

So, last night's movie date...we saw 'Lincoln', and it wasa typical Spielberg masterpiece.  
So realistic - but what really struck me was that even though some of the issues were different, 
the conflicts between Democrats and Republicans,
the divided 'house', etc., existed even that long ago.  We will probably see it again!

32 years ago today, we were blessed with a beautiful baby girl.  
Happy Birthday, Melissa - we love you!

Thanks for stopping by today - have a wonderful week!

Hugs,
Patti J.

Wow, PJ, our girls are so close together in age! Dee is 2/12, and the same age! We are so blessed.

As for your card, it is wonderful. A few little elements, and you have a very dramatic presentation! I am sure they loved it.

Love your CAS-ish anniversary card Patti! I always want to say, not so simple... hehe... sometimes the CAS take me longer than my regular colored cards! Love the little touch of sweet lace... so pretty with the red! TFS!

Love the simple in this card - yet absolutely stunning - love the heart out of the music paper and the lace is the finishing touch. Great job.

Pretty red card! Just in time for Sweetheart Day too! :) Thanks for commenting on my blog. I ran a humidifier last night until it was muggy and that seemed to help, not only me, but also that wallpaper. You'll never guess what I found under it!
