Happy Anniversary

I have some dear friends celebrating 40 years together - their ruby anniversary - at the end of the month.  This card is for the big event....  Yes, they have decided it is finally the right time to get married, thus the rings added to the design!

I am entering this card in the NBUS Friendship challenge to help Darnell Knauss celebrate reaching 500 followers.  The NBUS (never before used stuff) is the pansy stamp from Stampin' Up.  It only came out last year, but I finally broke down and bought the set.  Although I have a lot of flower stamps, I didn't have any open ones, and I am excited to see all the different ways to use it.  Please, click on the button to go to her website.                                 
Congratulations, Darnell.  (Sorry its not really old NBUS!)

Happy Birthday, Susanne

Today is Susanne's birthday! The Cardologists celebrated the occasion on Thursday night.  We usually time it so that Susanne is making the dessert when it is someone's birthday but Betty Bob rose to the occasion this time with a delicious strawberry birthday cake. 

Here is the card that I made for her this year. On her blog Keep in Touch she has been showing what she learned in her watercolor class, so I watercolored the image using shimmer colors.

Blowing you wishes, Susanne.

 I don't remember the company that makes the shimmer colors because I bought them so long ago at Stamp Convention.  The image is from Purple Onion Designs.
