Happy Anniversary!

Today is my 39th Wedding Anniversary, 
what  better theme to have at Less is More than just that!
Without further ado here are some of my Anniversary cards that I have made recently.
This was made for a friend at my choir who is a year ahead of us in the Anniversary stakes. He wanted a simple card for his wife... I wanted to get the ruby colour into it as he didn't have it mentioned in the sentiment.
The image is by Unity stamps and the border punch is by Martha Stewart.
This is for friends who will celebrate their Anniversary on Monday. Details are on the LIM blog.
Lots of Stampin' Up Hearts here, all heat embossed in silver, I think there are a few stray one too in fact. A Cuttlebug embossing folder adds a little interest to the panel, the border is edged with a Fiskars punch and a ribbon completes the picture. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up too!
Here's the card for my husband... we've had a couple of cats during our 39 years of marriage and we both have a soft spot for them!
I'm afraid tha tyou can't see the embossing on the image panel very clearly on this one, but it's a few leaves just emerging from the edge.
The colour mix I use for the gold computer printing is R170 G140 B29 This mix works really well with my printer which is a Lexmark X4650.
We're singing in a carol concert this evening, a carol service at our local church tomorrow, another concert  on Wednesday on the Isle of Wight and then I think we'll be done for another year!

  3. Gorgeous examples Chrissie, the 40th card is superb, I may have to pinch that idea for next year, just love the layouts for them all, getting everything in the right place makes all your cards work so well.

    Happy Anniversary to you both, 1973 was not a bad year to be married was it.
