My Delight

This is my second post today.  Please scroll down one post

Hi!  I'm back with another card this evening.  This one is for my husband, to celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary in October.  We've actually been together for 24 years, though -- almost half my life.  Wow.  I still consider myself blessed to call him mine.  :-)


I'm using some more new-to-me Unity rubber on this card.  The sentiment is from Delightful Little Things, a set of all sentiments that I just LOVE!  I bought several Unity sets from my friend Sav's Stamp Sale (runs until 10/1/12).

I used a bit of white gel pen, a red marker and touches of Liquid Pearls here.


The banners are from Fright Night.  I stamped them in red and in blue, trimmed and reassembled.  Each one got a dot of Liquid Pearls at the tip and in between pennants, too.

Wonderful card for your hubby and I really like that sweet sentiment. Sounds as if October is a big month at your house with birthdays and anniversaries.

Wishing you a happy anniversary...now I know how young you are. What a delightful sentiment:) it would make a lovely card all by itself. So cute the touches of color. I loved the color theme for this photo challenge, so I entered and linked back to you on my blog. By the way...when you sell your cards do they have verses inside or left blank? Or do you add stamped greeting? Thanks Just Curious
