That was the Birthday, now for the Anniversary - MINE! Today is my 10th wedding anniversary!!!! The two cards I made this week were shamelessly quick and easy, but I think they are also lovely and elegant. I can't decide which to give hubby - maybe you all can help me.

I made these cards using the UPTOWN HOUNDS TOOTH paper and the EMBOSSED MATS sets from LINDSAY'S STAMP STUFF. I created a postcard document in my Printshop program so I could print out 4 panels on one sheet of paper. All I did was layer the mat over the hounds tooth paper and print it out. Next, I cut out the panels and stamped the tulip and stem (Stampin' Up) one one card, adhered a red ribbon around that panel, attached that to a panel of black card stock and then to a white card base. For the other card, I stamped the birds (Inkadinkado), colored the cardinal with a red watercolor marker, attached a red Prima Flower and brad center then adhered that panel to a black card stock base. I don't think it took a whole 15 minutes to make BOTH of these cards!

To see what the rest of the Design Team has created this week, and to get a fabulous freebie, click HERE to go to Lindsay's blog. There is a lot happening this month, so be sure to check back in often so you won't miss out on the fun! Happy Digi Stamping, Everyone!

I ended up giving him the one with the birds- he said it was the best card I ever made :) Thanks for the comments and good wishes. We had a nice evening.
