Some Anniversary Cards

Today I thought I would show you the anniversary cards that my hubby and I exchanged over the weekend.

Here is the card that I made for him....

I tried really hard to make a card without flowers on it- but I gave up!!!! I decided to make the flowers blue, so that they would look a little more masculine! What do you think?

And now- here is the card that my sweet hubby made for me....

Isn't it sweet?! Now don't be fooled- he does not like stamping. But that is what makes this card so special...he made it for me even though stamping is not something he enjoys. And I think he did a pretty awesome job! Just take a closer look at those hearts...

He stamped them on two differt colors of cardstock and pieced them together! I am impressed! His card looks much better than any of my early creations!!!!

Now you want to see the gift he gave me with the card?

Isn't it a beauty?!!!! I have not had a watch in quite some time and I was just shocked by the gift! He had a very small budget to work with so he shopped for sales and even looked for store coupons. I have trained him well!!!
