Happy Anniversary!!!! TO ME~

Yesterday my Husband and I celebrated our #7th wedding anniversary~ Time seems to be whizzing by and we are enjoying every minute of it. We always go to a local restaurant for dinner each year. It is housed in an old fishing cottage that is 100+ years old. The furniture is lots of mix and match antiques, and the food is always superb. The same place each time, an anniversary tradition for us- although this year we had to shift gears a bit. We got dressed up, drove there, and saw it was all dark. My husband got out of the car and read a sign on the door that said they were closed due to inclement weather.
We were really bummed for a minute~ but then decided to make lemonade and try somewhere new. It is also a restaurant in our little town, but we had never eaten there before.
All ended well as we had a wonderful dinner, good wine, and lots of laughs. Anyhow, onto my card. This was the anniversary card I made for my DH. I had seen something somewhere that used this stamp from Unity and put a chipboard "U" in it. I used that great idea and came up with this card. I am very pleased with the way it came out, and my husband really liked it.
The red cardstock was from my stash and had little embossed hearts all over it~ how perfect! The card is a 6 by 6". Its matted with black SU cardstock and stamped with Real Red from SU. Chipboard letter was colored with Copics and glittered with Martha Stewart red glitter.
White scrap was punched with a Martha Stewart punch, as were the hearts on the inside. I used my last piece of black plaid ribbon purchased at Michaels for the bow.

Many thanks for stopping by...
