ATC Tuesday - Love


Today's ATC has already made it's way to the front of a card...which is why I can't retake the photo to fix the blurriness - OOPS!!!

Today, DH and I celebrate our 19th anniversary. Pretty good in today's day and age where the divorce rate is probably higher than the marriage rate! Especially good when people tell me I don't look old enough to have been married for 19 years...I love those people!

So, I used a retired set on this one, but that's OK. There's lots of other lovey-dovey sets in the catalogue, but I liked this one, because it was just PERFECT for an ATC. The set is called "A Happy Heart" and since my heart is happy today, I thought it was fitting.

I used my markers to colour directly on the image using my Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and Night of Navy markers. Then I huffed and I puffed and I stamped the image on Whisper White. Of course *sigh* it was crooked, so I had to hand trim it and my trimming was actually straight for a change - YAY! I matted the stamped image on Cherry Cobbler and then on Early Espresso. My ATC is 2 1/2" X 3 1/2" and the Whisper White layer is slightly smaller.

I borrowed my DS' fingers to make the little bow, but I'm seeing my FIL this weekend and will ask him to make me one of those cool wood bow makers that have been floating around.

What do you think?
