Happy Anniversary Card

Hello and welcome!

I have been seeing a lot of fun inspiration for Valentine's Day and decided to create some anniversary cards too. Here is my latest one:


I used Memory Box's Share the Happiness "happy" die cut along with a cute heart stencil and Verve "Anniversary" stamp.

This card is entered in:

  •  Memory Box Challenge #68 "Hearts"
              
  • The "Layer It Up" Wednesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp

State Fair 2019

 Hello and welcome!

Our family has been doing the Minnesota State Fair together for decades. It was sad that they had to cancel it for 2020. But to cheer myself up, I decided to scrap some of the fair photos from 2019. Keep your fingers cross we will get to attend in 2021.


I was digging through some old bags from Archiver's and found a kit featuring Basic Gray papers. Thought they worked well with the fair theme. I scraplifted a page from Scrap Our Stash and used Basic Gray mixed alphas for the title.
