Happy Anniversary To Us!

DSCF7372

Happy Friday, everyone!  Today is our 16th anniversary, so I made John a card using SU’s new Moon Lake and the spotlight technique:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Moon Lake Anniversary Stampin Up

First, I diecut and embossed the edge of my Crumb Cake card, then stamped the image in Crumb Cake ink, along with some Gorgeous Grunge.  Then I stamped the image again on Whisper White cardstock in Stazon ink and watercolored it.  I punched it out with the 1 3/4” circle punch and aligned it over the first image:

This reminds me of our little dinghy; we use it to get out to our sailboat when it is on its mooring….unfortunately, we didn’t sail at all last year, so it’s actually sitting in our backyard, LOL!  I added a little banner sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes, along with some Linen thread for an accent, then I adhered a cool piece of matching DSP from the Adventure Bound pack on the inside and added a sweet little sentiment from A Dozen Thoughts:

I didn’t write all my lovey-dovey stuff on it yet, saving you the embarrassment!  But I am entering this in the Kraft Journal challenge 206 this week:

I actually got everything except the ribbon, glitter and snowman!!  Cool challenge!  I also used the sketch from Mary Jo’s Technostamper Monday Lunchtime sketch:

Thanks for visiting today….we will be going out to dinner later tonight, something I am looking forward to VERY much!

I am looking forward to spring, so we can take these things OUTSIDE!!!

Happy Anniversary, LeAnne! Your card is beautiful. The background stamping is handsome on crumb cake and your colorful scene looks like a painting! Fabulous coloring job. I hope you and John have special plans today that DON'T involve Cassidy blowing that vuvuzela in the house, LOL! ((hugs))

Happy Anniversary, LeAnne! Your card is gorgeous and so perfect for a masculine anniversary card. I love the stamp you used and the technique is impeccable. The twine on the sentiment is such a great way to add the nautical feel texturally. Have a wonderful dinner tonight!

Happy Anniversary! I am a silent follower of your blog and very much enjoy all your cards and inspiration. This is a lovely card and have a question about the die & embossing on the edge...is the die from Stampin' Up? I have been looking for something similar.

Happy Anniversary to you both! Love the card! Another idea, because our anniversary is coming up too.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!! Have a great time celebrating together.
I love this card today. I love how you've done this spotlighting technique with this beautiful scene. Your watercolouring is also beautiful too. This is a great sketch. You've got me rethinking this set and wanting to look for that DSP.
