Hi, guys! Today my hubby and I are celebrating our second wedding anniversary. Both my husband and I decided to take off work and enjoy time together. To start the day, we gave each other cards we made for each other. I am very touched that he takes the time to make me a card for the holidays since he knows how much I love them. The card I made for him used the Papertrey Ink Jane Austen stamp set. I figured what better love story is there than that of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett. The sentiment inside I used was "You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you" from the same stamp set. I wanted to try a shabby chic look for the card after taking the Jennifer McGuire Kick Start online class where one was demonstrated.
Now I will share the card he made for me. I think it is awesome and told him he is a card maker at heart but just doesn't know it yet. He is very witty and fun, and decided to incorporate the date of our marriage in the card by using the clock. We were married 10-2-10. He then put a second hand with a small arrow pointing to it to signify the "second" wedding anniversary. If that doesn't say thought and planning, I don't know what does.
He didn't need to use any stamping in this card, and even incorporated our invitation into it. He loves the look of the torn papers that I do, but I still can't convince him it is OK to rip pages out of old books, so he photocopies the words out of the old dictionary and then tears it. The book lover in him can't help but cringe inwardly when I rip apart stuff. It is so funny.
Off to celebrate and enjoy the day! Hope your day is filled with fun and lots of love too!
