I made this card for my oldest daughter Emily's birthday. Her birthday isn't until March 1st, but I figured with Easter coming up right behind it, I didn't want to waste time preparing it!! I used the digital image "Cupcake Lineup" from "From the Heart Stamps" and colored them up with Spectrum Noir Markers. I used Spellbinders Long Classic Rectangles Large & Scalloped Rectangles Large to frame it, a Stampin Up sentiment, and green ribbon from my stash! Emily loves to make cupcakes for her six children and other extended family celebrations such as baby/wedding showers, etc! She loves chocolate and the color green, not real sure about the pink, but I think she'll like her card!! Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!

My husband and I were married on Valentine's Day in 1976! So this is our 37th year being married! Kind of hokie...but I don't even think we were trying to be cute getting married on that day. If I remember right, we just took a look at the calendar and said....hey that day's as good as any! At the time I think we were working around other upcoming weddings on both sides of our family and were trying not to make them too closed to each other. In retrospect it was a horrible day for future anniversary celebrationsm because everybody and their brother is taking their wife/girlfriend out on that night! Oh well! This year we celebrated by going out to dinner & a movie this past Sunday! I still wanted to make this card for him and give it to him on our actual anniversay. This cute image is called Ava & Deacon Love Word from Bugaboo Digi Stamps. They have some of the cutest and humorous images! I colored them with a combination of Prisma Pencils & Spectrum Noir markers. The Feb 14 stamp is from My Creative Time 100% Sweetness set. The die cut they are framed on is Spellbinder's Romantic Rectangles. The flower & button are from my stash. Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
