34 Years... but who's counting?

My husband and I just celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary. We exchanged homemade cards. I will save his stunning creation for last, but may I say it is a testament to his sense of humour - and mine!

I chose something more romantic - using these lovely Quietfire Design rose and sentiment stamps. I gold embossed them and watercoloured with Distress Markers. The rose is bordered by an Opera Tag die cut from Waltzingmouse Stamps.

The background is created using the "Belleek Pottery" technique, which is a form of letterpress. I used Marvy Matchables Peach dye ink.

Now here is my dear husband's card, complete with his own hand lettering:
He has lately been watching the old TV series The Munsters, so that was the inspiration. He had a mushy poem inside that he said he borrowed only the first two lines from the internet to create. Who says romance is dead?

Oh, this is absolutely lovely! Love the technique - it worked so well for this card. So coordinated!

Oh, bad Suzanne. And *Happy Anniversary*!!!

I love the simple elegance of your card! So beautiful. I just love the one your husband sent to you - that image is great! Such fun!
