Happy Anniversary Joe (MFTWSC75), (LRSBC3)

Happy Anniversary to me and Joe on Friday.  I HAD to make this card today! lol.  Nothing like waiting til the last minute, but the second I saw this weeks sketch challenge on MFT's I knew exactly what I was going to do.  Also, Loves Rubber Stamps Challenge is anything goes.  I read on her blog she is also going to start carrying MFT's in her on-line store.  So I knew this would be a great card to make for her challenges and I look forward to her next challenge.  And just so you know, after she featured my card on her blog, I was emailing her back and forth and mentioned that I would love some other Flourishes (company) stamps and she ordered those for me, so I think this might be a great start to a very expensive relationship, lol. 

Now there is still all kinds of Valentines paper sitting on my table, but I thought this Echo Park Sweet Day paper was appropriate.  The clouds represent the storms we have passed, the words in the clouds are the times we talked it through, and the hot air balloons represent Joe, lol, I mean the good times we have had and the cool stuff that we have seen.  Now mind you, I think hot air balloons are super cool, but I would not want to get in the thing and go for a ride.  Just not me.  Like my feet on the ground. lol.  The inside of the card is stamped with MFT's stamp set "about Anniversaries".  It says, "It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life."  lol. 

I air brushed the sky and the ground and added some grass.  I paper pierced with some other patterns I found in this 6X6 pad.  I added some pearls I found in my stash.  I also used one of the MFT's tabs for my sentiment.  This stamp set by MFT's is called, PI Better together little lamb.  Copics: C2, C1, C0, C00, R11, E12, YG11, R24, R27, YG13, BG72. 

Oh and just so you know, Joe and I have been married for TEN years!   When we first got married, my hobby was working.  I just worked and worked and worked some more.  One of those career things.  My children were already teenagers and they just wanted to do their own thing and that was sometimes expensive, lol.  Joe encouraged me to buy pretty paper I saw, took me down to sign up for a scrap booking 101 class and encouraged me to start getting the things I needed for scrap booking.  So sweet!  And I did scrapbook a few pages ...... until I discovered stamping and card making. lol.   But I do plan to get back into some scrap booking very soon.  But what a guy huh?  Of course now he may be sorry he did that, lol.
