65th Wedding Anniversary

Hi, Friends......

I am struggling to get this card blogged because of my injured hand.....sprained my fingers when I fell and bent three fingers completely backwards trying to catch myself. YOWCH!! Talk about a hand that is painfully swollen and black and blue!!! Ugh. I don't recommend it.

A very special couple at church is celebrating their 65th Wedding Anniversary this weekend. WOW.... SIXTY-FIVE YEARS together...what a blessed milestone!!! So.....despite a messed up hand, I just had to make a card for them. It had to be simple because of my injury, but I love how it turned out.

Sorry I can't dig up links to the supplies, but I used some American Crafts glittered numbers and puffy hearts, DCWV paper, and Sizzix dies for the gold frame.

Hope you enjoyed seeing it and I hope they like it!! Thanks for your thoughts and prayers for my hand.

  2. A lovely card that will certainly be appreciated. You wouldn't know that you had an injured hand looking at this card. Hope it heals quickly so you can do all the things you love doing. Love the cartoon too.

  3. Awww oouch!! Can't spell expletives today!! I did that hand thing once. You are right, definitely not something I would recommend. I hope you feel better soon. Get yourself some Arnica tablets/cream. It helps with bruising. I love this card. Simple is perfect and a fabulous milestone. Hugz
