Today is my husband's birthday...62 years old today! We've been married almost 37 years...where did the years go so fast!? "Time flies when you're having fun"...and when you are busy with a big family! We sorta thought it would slow down when we got older but that sure hasn't happened. And the family keeps growing!
And yes, it IS fun. God is good...all the time.
The stamp I used on this card is a PSX which I stamped once, then turned around, masked out the bird and stamped it again to make the evergreen branch longer. Then I colored it with colored pencils.
The sentiment is an Inkadinkadoo, the embossing folder used is a Sizzix called "Evergreen". It is hard to see in the photo but I also added Stickles "Star Dust" to the branch and the bird for a wintry, sparkly look. The brown and white baker's twine I got from Pizzazz Aplenty. The kraft card stock base is Paper Studio and has a matching envelope (my "new" item!).
The challenges I'm entering this in are:
