Happy Sunday, peeps! I hope your weekend is going well! I suddenly came down with some allergy symptoms and sore throat, which is really annoying me, considering how nice of a weekend it is! All I want to do is sleep!
Anyway, our 400th Paper Players celebration continues, so if you didn't get a chance to play last week, you have another week to try! For my card this week, I went in a different "celebration" direction...this card is for a couple in our congregation who just celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary! The husband happens to be my dad's first cousin, so I guess that makes him my second cousin! My grandmother was his aunt, and I can always see a family resemblance to her when I see him on Sundays, and he has never lost his sense of humor despite many illnesses! So he and his wife are very special to me! I used Brushed Gold and Chocolate Chip cardstocks to create the letters, and some beautiful Graphic 45 paper for the background on this large, but simple card:
The sentiment banner was cut with a die from the Large Numbers die, and stamped with a sentiment from Beautiful Bouquet. I did a wee bit of shading with a blender pen and some Sahara Sand ink to give it a 3D effect...I just love how this looks! I backed it with another banner in Chocolate Chip as well, to give it even more depth:
SO....we hope that you'll enter your celebration creation over at the Paper Players blog, and just in case you didn't see all the sponsors and prizes, you NEED to check it out, as well as the gorgeous creations from the DT! Hope to see you there!
Last week in the pouring rain, John came out of the garage and almost stepped on this:
It was pretty unusual for a snapping turtle to come so close to the buildings...it looks like he was wanting to take a bath from the rain spout!!! Hopefully I'll have some Cassidy pictures next week, as she'll be back tomorrow! Have a blessed day!
