Floral Heart Anniversary!

Well, this card is really simple, yet I think it is very elegant.  It is going to my parents who will be celebrating their 47th Anniversary!  They have had their ups and downs but they have been a great example to me.  As much as I don't want to admit that they are getting up in years, they really are.  I hate seeing them get "old" and struggle with things that they never did before, like their health, especially.  But I am so proud of them for staying married and loving each other and loving God so much to pass that down to me. 

I used:
Plantain SchoolBook Cricut Cartridge
Making Memories Wedding paper pad
2 different shades of red cardstock
Martha Stewart Hydrangea Flower Punch
Christmas red stickles
I-Rock Gems
Gray Satin Ribbon from Michael's
Sentiment Stamp from Michael's

Here is a side picture of the heart and flowers so you can see the dimension.

Well, thank you so much for taking a peek at what I have been doing! 
 I hope you have a day filled with many blessings.

Sparkly 16th Birthday

Hello!  I hope you all are doing great and staying warm as Fall is here.  Here in Ohio we are under a frost warning for tonight.  Wow, I love fall and colors of the trees and all the fun festivities that come with the preparation of the cooler weather.  Today was one of those days with a fall like party, for my wonderful niece!  Today she turned 16!  She is very special to my family.  She comes and spends a lot of time with us and we really enjoy her.  Well, today we had a party for her and celebrating her and spoiling her!  Anyways, I wanted to make something really special for her and make it very girly.  So I came up with the idea for the card and then the bag with her favorite chocolates in it.  The problem is that she is so special to me that I finally broke down and used a bunch of my favorite papers.  Have you ever had some special paper that you love so much you just can't bring yourself to use.  Well, that is this paper!  I have used it in few little projects but not like this.  I really enjoyed doing this for her and I know she really loved it all!

I used: 
DCWV The Glitzy Glitter Stack (LOVE this paper)
Making Memories Wedding paper
Forever Young Cricut Cartridge for the girl, shoes, and the background papers
Tags, Bags, Boxes & More Cricut Cartridge for the bag
Gypsy Font Cricut Cartridge for the numbers
Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge for the flowers
Martha Stewart Punch for the Back Ground papers corners
Blue Stickles
Blue Ribbon from my stash
Rhinestone Brad in the center of the one flower, from my stash

Well, thanks for stopping by and I hope you
have a fabulous day!
