Aren’t these two love birds adorable? Aw! So Cute! I think they make a great pair for either a Wedding or an Anniversary Card! I used it for an Anniversary Card, I do not have any Weddings in the near future! Anniversaries…I do have quite a few!

For the Card base, I used Blushing Bride Cardstock, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored @ 4 1/4″, folded in half on the score, and also for the mat under the love birds! The mat measures, 2 1/2″ x 3 3/4″

The greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and stamped in Memento’s Tuxedo Black Ink.

 

Here is the inside of my Card!

I used the Petal Palette Stamp Set for the sentiment stamped in Memento’s Tuxedo Black Ink, onto the Whisper White Panel, 4″ x 5 1/4″. The strip of Petal Passion DSP, is 3/4″ x 4″, it was a piece cut off the front DSP panel! Still plenty of room for the personal note to the lucky couple!

Truth be told…when I first received this DSP, I was not in love with the ‘brown’

pages or elements of this Suite…but, I have slowly started liking it, a lot! It gives a fresh

look to the DSP, I hadn’t really looked at, when first getting the pack…there will be more

cards coming, but not till closer to June! I still have to decide which cards to make for

my class on June 6th! We shall see!

Until the next Post…Blessings and Love to you ALL!

Today would be my Mother’s 87th Birthday.

I know Mom would have loved this Card!

I believe that is where I got my love of all things ‘Nautical’!

 Mom would have loved to receive this Card for her Birthday!

So ‘Happy Birthday’ in heaven Mom! Love you and Miss you so much.

Thanks to you, I will see you in heaven, again, one day!

In 1979, on Mother’s Day, my Mom, lead me in prayer, to the Lord!

I now have the assurance of eternity in heaven! Amen!

Until the next Post…Blessings and Assurance to you ALL who Seek it!
