Anniversary card...

It was our wedding anniversary on October 16, and here's the card I made for my DH:

Since we are traveling on our anniversary, this card had to be made ahead of time. In fact, I had a lot of cards that I had to have done ahead of time, so I didn't make complicated ones. Simple designs were the norm!

This one required a little bit of time to do the coloring. I stamped my image with Memento ink and then used Promarkers to color it. The raindrops were added by just flicking a light blue marker on the paper. Not sure I like the result, but there's no going back now. And it looked strange with no rain at all, since the couple is bundled in their coats and huddled under an umbrella.

The dots in the upper right corner are actually blue, not black, and were made with Nuvo Crystal Drops.

The inside of my card is very simple, but I will write a personal note, so it really won't look so bare.

I'm not sure where we'll be or what we'll be doing to celebrate our anniversary, as this post has been written and scheduled ahead of time. Whatever it is, I'm sure we'll have a good time. We always do!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
