Happy Anniversary

Best vacation ever. Honestly. Although the weather is poor by California standards, it is wonderful to stay in the cabin and play with my stamps. I have made at least 10 cards so far and as it is cloudy today...looks like this will be another fun day for me. My husband, not so much! Today I have an anniversary card inspired by all the ombre cards I have been seeing lately. One of the dies I brought with me on vacation is the heart border die from PTI. It seemed like the perfect die to use to re-create an ombre style card.


I also used Background Basics Sheet Music and one of the fillable frames images. I cut a mask and first stamped the music and then the frame. The sentiment is from Beautiful Butterflies which has one of my favorite fonts. I was going for a fairly flat card with only the one layer of die cuts on it. I love all these pretty pink colors. Thanks for taking a look and listening to me ramble. I am adding a picture of what is going on right outside my window as I type this. Shh! I guess you aren't supposed to feed the deer, but we love watching them!

Beautiful Anniversary card Cathy! I always love those hearts. Wow, you have the perfect view and I would feed those sweeties if i could see them so closely!

Oh my goodness …looks like heaven on earth to me outside your cabin door!
This card is so pretty I love the gradual color change of the hearts, I have to admit I had to look up “Ombre” for cards I was not sure what that was. Shhh don't tell anyone. Mums the word on feeding the dear!
Gorgeous Anniversary card! I hope Warren reads! Or maybe you can get him to clean up your craft mess.

Hi Cathy! Glad you are having a great vacation and getting some crafty time in. Your card is beautiful - I love all the shades of pink - the sweet hearts, and the clean look of your card. That deer is beautiful - what a view - you're never going to want to leave!

Oh, I would love to look out and see a deer! The most we have are opossoms & raccoons--not so elegant and usually just in the yard causing trouble! Sounds like a wonderful vacation spot. Do you bird watch too? Love your pretty anniversary card--the hearts are perfect!

So beautiful Cathy. I love the rows of beautifully colored colored hearts too, so perfect with that sheet music. Love your sweet deer too, how fun to be out in nature.
