Celebrating 27 Years...

Happy Hellos Everyone:

I hope your weekend was fantastic! It started off on a day of mixed emotion with an Baltimore Orioles lost to the New York Yankees, but what a terrific season. Any time your team is playing in the post season, you've already won more than what's expected. Then there was that up close in your face ugly, scary, heart pounding, beautiful win yesterday by the Baltimore Ravens. All I can say is we're 5-1 heading into week seven.

It seems like forever, but I actually have a card to share with you. Earlier last week, I was asked by a gentlemen to make an anniversary card for his wife. I didn't know the couple, which made it a little challenging.The only thing I know was the couple was celebrating their 27 year anniversary. Take a look at what I came up with.


I pulled out My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Union Square collection.
 I thought the color selection alone was romantic.
 

As you can see, one of the charms reads 27 years. I thought that was important.
I also thought to identify it wasn't just her anniversary, so the sentiment reads,
 'Happy Anniversary To Us.'
 
 
The crown and the key ties into the sentiment  on the inside of the card.
 It reads, The key to a man sustaining a successful marriage is marrying
 a queen like you. There was ample room for him to write a personal message.
 

I absolutely love the angle of this card.

Wow!!! You did a fantastic job on this card! I love the pp, colors and the ribbon but that key and crown took this lovely gift over the top. Great sentiment, too. Also, we are a sport household too. I was so sorry to hear about Ray Lewis injury. He will be missed! Take care!
