Happy Anniversary

Happy Anniversary to me! Yes, today is my anniversary but my husband is too sick to celebrate much less go out! Anyways I still have my little card for him and thought I'd share it with you. Crafting time as been extra sparse again this week. We are working like mad on the house. I'm talking almost 12 straight hours a day painting for me. My kids are asking when I'm gonna be around, when I'm actually gonna make dinner and so on. I'll admit they didn't get a bath for 5 days. It's getting bad! I'm actually glad it's raining today because I don't have to go outside to work. I should be cleaning inside but it's Sunday! A day of rest! Ahhhhhhh.

Here goes... I used Stampin' 411's sketch #168. I went with the simple card I had planned for my husband. He's not really into anything extravagant. And by no means any pretty accessories. I actually snuck a snippet of ribbon in there but not before I sponged it to make it a little dirty looking. Every layer on this card got dirtied up. You should see my fingers. All that leftover white paint from the house is now black with ink.

The sentiment from Word Play says it all! I just stamped it on Very Vanilla cardstock, tore all around it and sponged all those edges. Hope he likes. In all reality the paper means nothing to him without my words on the inside. But those are for him to see! You can just admire the front! lol!

Hope you have a great day!
