CR84FN # 38 ~ This one is for me!

Welcome to My Paper Tales!!! I appreciate your stopping by my blog to take a peek. I'm back today with a card for the CR84FN color challenge: bright pink, black and gray.


My plan was to make a card for my parents wedding anniversary that comes in October. They were married in the 50's and these colors seemed to be the perfect choice. So away I went and was so happy with the way it turned out. I showed it to my husband and to my  extreme delight he said "Ohhhh...I like this one...this is one of my favorites! I think this one is for me...to keep!" I could have just melted away! I'll never forget that moment. I know I'll keep him...he's my favorite!!! So yes...you guessed it...mom and dad will be getting a different card. Just a few design details ~ the stamp is Unity, DPs are Bo Bunny, Authentique & My Minds Eye, a bit of ribbon, glitter and a gem. Have a spectacular day ~Lisa

How sweet a story... I've programed my little guy to gush at every card, my DH isn't quite so easily trained. I've got that fabulous Unity stamp, must ink it up again.
