Happy Anniversary

Hello!

I hope that you all enjoyed a safe and happy 4th of July!  We had a house full, and it was so nice!
4 of the 8 visitors were age 10 and under, and we loved every minute of spoiling them!

I haven't done much creating this week, but I thought I would share a card that I recently created for a couple at our church.


The papers are from a Bazzill paper pad, and a Paper Studio paper pad.  The sentiment is from the dollar bin at Michael's (gotta love shopping in a dollar bin, right?) and I've had it for several years. Heart is drawn and cut out by hand, button from my stash, and Baker's Twine is from A muse Studios. My focal piece has a beautiful straight border, created with my Perfect Layers Rulers (see sidebar for details).

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Have a great weekend,

Patti J.

Food for thought: 

We often love things and use people, when we should be using things and loving people!

What a sweet anniversary card - see if you had a cameo you could cut out a "perfect" heart - NOT.

Wonderful card Patti, I love the paper, and your card is so lovely.

We had fireworks on July 1st and because we live close to the border got to enjoy July 4th fireworks too. I have to say the Americans were awesome and ours not so much! *smile* Have a great week-end.
