Happy, Happy Anniversary


The 23rd is our 52nd anniversary so I needed to make my husband an anniversary card and was having a hard time trying to come up with something.   Then it hit me…..he just got back from a hike in the mountains close to our house so what better to use but Edwin hiking.


I also used the background that goes with Edwin.  Since it was a guy card I didn’t want to put a lot of fussy flowers on it so used one Sunflower from WOC and added a little greenery.

Tomorrow we are off to meet my brother and sister-in-law at a quaint little town where I plan on buying a lot of fabric for a quilt I am planning on making…..oh what fun!!

Once we get home it’ll be time to help celebrate our son-n-laws birthday….poor fella he has to share the day with us….every year.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your week has started off great.   With the arrival of the royal baby I’m sure everyone in the UK is celebrating!


hugs, Ruth Ann

    Your card is fantastic - great male card. My husband built a green house and planted sun flowers along one side. We love sunflowers. Your card is really pretty and could be for a male or female.

  5. This is simply the most perfect card for Sheldon being the great hiker he is. LOVE your wonderful coloring & the nice shading around everything. Your stems on your flower look great too. Congrats on winning the commenter prize from Magnolia-licious. Can't wait to see what it is.
