50 yrs. & counting!


Our wonderful neighbors recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary & their family organized a surprise pot luck dinner for them. It was a beautiful evening & we were able to sit outside for the meal....which is a good thing because there was atleast 50 people there! We stuffed ourselves with turkey, prime rib roast, perogies, a potato/veggie casserole that was to die for & all sorts of other goodies. It was all topped off with gorgeous cupcakes decorated with yummy chocolate hearts & swirls. Ray & Kay were very surprised....as a matter of fact when the first few people showed up Kay told them "We haven't had supper yet....come back later if you want to sit around the bonfire!" The evening was filled with good friends, good food & lots & lots of laughter! Perfect!!
This is the card I made for the special couple. I don't think I have ever made a card before without a colored image on it. I love the way this one turned out....it's CAS, just the way I like cards to be. I'm not an "over embellisher".  I have used Basic Grey...Picadilly DP & Bazzill CS; die cuts are Memory Box small Tilda swirl & whimsical flourish & Spellbinder tags. The ribbon & blingy heart are from my stash.
Thanks for stopping in....hope you are having an amazing day!

  14. Such a beautiful card Renee!! And YES.. that would be a paw print on my daughter's cheek. :) I found the stamp in a discounted bin and it was the best purchase, for we are doing this to her face every year. Just need to make sure I always have black eye liner on hand to fill in the missing ink spots. That day she was happy to have a crafty Mom. :) Thanks for saying HI!!
