Happy Anniversary

Hi everyone.
Glad to 'see' you here today.
Had a lovely afternoon with some friends yesterday. Even Alan was chatty!
(He's quite an introvert so it's an occasion when he sits and talks)! LOL
Anyway, two of the friends had a wedding anniversary so of course I made them a card.
I'm good at MAKING cards for friends, not so good at remembering to POST 'em!
It was perfect! They were visiting anyway, so no need to forget to post their card.
Ha Ha!

Here is said card.....

I die cut two hearts from a Nellie Snellen die.
Stamped a background pattern on 'em from a beautiful huge stamp by Impression Obsession called 'swirl Background'.
I then sponged the hearts with Tim Holtz's  'Aged Mahogany' ink pad.
Embossed a white panel and mounted said panel on a red mat, which in turn was mounted on a 6x6 scalloped card.
Added the sentiment from a Stampendous wooden stamp which had been stuck onto the wood slightly not straight, so I messed up two cards trying to get the stupid thing on straight.
Thank you Stamp-a-ma-Jig!
 Three four! little gems were all that were needed to finish it off.

I'm happy to report they loved it!

See you soon! Thanks for visiting. xxx
