Happy Anniversary - 32 years with my sweetie!

Jerry and I just celebrated our 32nd anniversary last Thursday! Happy anniversary, honey! Smiley from

Of course, I had to make him a hand-stamped card. It uses the Cogs Extra-Large Double Punch (pg. 202 IB&C) and Basic Gray, Brushed Silver, and Whisper White cardstock. The circles are "left over" from the insides of the cogs when you punch them. The sentiment is from a retired Stampin' Up! set. The center of the card with the sentiment is only attached to the rest of the card with the cogs.I also added some cogs to the inside of the card so they would line up with the ones in the front. I put my sentiment inside by running my cardstock through my printer -- and I made sure that you couldn't see it from the outside. (That was added after I took the picture. Our power had gone out that afternoon so I had to finish the card the next morning!) I think the basic card idea came from Jackie Topa. Jerry really seemed to like it. Smiley from

He sent me this beautiful bouquet of flowers.I took a couple close-up pictures of the lilies that were in the bouquet. Now that I know how to make them out of cardstock, I'll have to pay closer attention to the colors in them!
Here is a stargazer lily. Gorgeous, isn't it?
