Anniversary Card for My Husband

I did get it made in time!  Hurray!  LOL!  And actually, this is one of my favorite cards that I’ve made.:)




Chester stamp and sentiment stamp from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps.  I also used a little arrow stamp from Studio G to point to the number 8 on the clock, since this was our 8th anniversary!:)  The gears are Tim Holtz, and I also used Tim Holtz masks to make the gears on the grey paper.  The N and L stamps were from the dollar bin at Michael’s.  And I even used some sandpaper to sand the bottom edge of the front of the card.

This card goes along with these challenges…

Oh, Alice!:  Chapter 17:  Mad Watch

A Crafty Little Challenge #43 – One for the Boys

I really liked the sentiment “Time Passes…Friendship Remains” because Nathan and I are still the best of friends after so many years.  And since I’m being so sentimental, here are a couple of our wedding photos from 8 years ago…



Thanks so much for looking!
