Wow that was such a nice response from everyone! My head is getting big!! I figured you would all like to see the other half of my anniversary card. I guess it really is a mini book?
Moving right of the Murphy page, I fell in love with the striped paper but I didn't want it to look like the other split page (the pale orange ones). I found a corner stamp that I thought would kind of classy it up a little. Those license plates were cut from another sheet in the set. And of course I had to have some stickles. By the way, Murphy's yarn has a thin coat of stickles!
I guess Tilda is supposed to be me. Since it is the only female on the card!! There are a lot of stickles on this one. The ticket is one I stamped and cut out. Check out her pockets! Wish I could find shorts like that in my giant size!! That is a grungeboard shape painted with crackle paint. Just had to do it!!
This is the page opened so you can see the entire thing. The heart and stars are grunge. That is a tiny key and is attached with a brad meaning key to my heart.
I painted the heart silver and the 26 is done with the crackle paint. There are stickles on the whole edge of the heart. I stamped a bunch of lines on the opposite page with a stamp I forget I have (now I keep it out so I will remember to use it). I added a touching little "letter" to make this a very personal "card". I wish I could give credit to all the things and people who inspired me to do all the different things I did to this card, but I honestly don't remember . I really enjoyed making this very special card. And I hope you enjoyed looking at it. The back of the 26 page is the Vancouver page and then there is the complete outside of the book which is covered in the same paper as the front.
Now I have some other news! I signed up for a free online class which started today. It's called "Got Glue" and here is the link
Tami showed three techniques for changing around the background and I just had a blast doing them!! It was a really neat class and you just can't beat the price!! Free!!!!
And with that I will say hugs to you all!! You make my days much brighter with your lovely comments!! Barb F
