Christmas in July card

I recently participated in a Christmas in July swap and I included this Saturated Canary Christmas card in my partner's package. Her name is Nikki (click on the thumbnail below).  I just love Krista's cute little girls.  They are such fun to color with my Copic markers.  They've been feeling quite neglected lately. LOL

My partner loves aqua blue and kraft so this card just fit the bill.  I tried to keep it as simple as possible as that's her style as well.  I'm pretty happy with how it came out.  I really had to restrain myself from adding too much frou frou or blingity bling bling. LOL

Card details are as follows:
MME "Be Merry" 6x6 paper pad
Nesties:  round & scalloped round
Kraft cardstock
Stash items:  Jute, Paper Doilies, Recollections bling

Our Anniversary cards to share

This is the card I made for my hubby recently for our 40th wedding anniversary.  I loved the old fashioned looking gentleman looking at the musical notes on the side.  He looks like he's deep in thought. Probably remembering when we danced all night (see the little tag).  LOL  Okay......I know...........I've got quite an imagination.  LOL

Card details:
Papers:  Graphic45 "Times Nouveau" & "A Ladies' Diary" and Colorbok "Antique Paperie", Black & Kraft cardstock
TH Alterations Sizzlits Decorative Strip "Filmstrip Frames"
Misc:  Jute, Brad, black glitter accent

This is the card he made for me.  It's soooo sweet.  He came to me that morning & asked me which birdhouse over the kitchen cabinets was "my favorite".  Well it was hard to choose one but I finally did.  He told me not to ask any questions.  LOL  Oh that's a tough one..........but I didn't.  LOL

The front of the card is the aforementioned birdhouse sitting in our yard.  Is that too cute or what?  Then he printed some birdies on his computer for the inside of the card.  He did this all by himself.  I love it!!!  He couldn't have done it any better.  Wouldn't you agree? We're just a couple of ol' love birds.  LOL
