Addicted to Stamps and More #141

Time for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More. This week we are going with 'Anything Goes'

Here is what I created for this challenge!


I needed a Birthday card for my hubby (it was last Saturday). I had seen this sentiment at Visible Image and thought it was just perfect for him. We didn't meet until I was 37, married when I was 39-he is my toy boy-2 years younger! I really do wish we had met when we were younger and then I would have been able to love him longer!
Although it did take me 37 years to grow up, so perhaps we met just at the right time!

A little crafty secret-that red strip of card wad added to hide up a black ink smudge. I had the card ready to photograph and noticed the smudge. Being a crafter who really doesn't like to re-do and would rather 'cover up' this red card was added. I actually think it looks better with this.

We are sponsored this week by Sweet Pea Stamps. They have the most amazing stamps and the winner of this challenge will get 4 digi stamps.

Our DT, as always, have some fabulous cards to inspire you-take a look here

I loved the photo this week at The Challenge-so romantic and perfect for my hubby's card, the colouring (grey with pop of red) and the sentiment behind the photo are the inspiration.

I will enter this into the sketch challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch

      

Enjoy!
