A Circle Anniversary Card


I was so late in making an anniversary card for my brother and sister-in-law! I had wanted to make it special and kept delaying it until I found the right image and then I had to find the right papers and then I had to find the special component that would make the card out of the ordinary. The current challenge on Mo Manning's challenge blog was for "A Circle w/Mo Image" and that gave me the shape and I already had an image chosen that was one of hers. I found the papers - even one I liked for the bench - and then I still had to find that special component that was not something I normally used. Going through my treasure drawer I came upon the small paper flowers that I had been saving for over a year to use for a special project. Well, they were perfection to add to this card image!

So Happy Anniversary Dick and Bonnie! I hope that they don't read my blog post today and the card will arrive as a surprise. I will write after they get it in the mail to check this post. I hope that it gets to them without any damage! You can see Mo's current challenge at - the DT has created so many fun cards!

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! Wishing you love and flowers!

That has got to be the most adorable anniversary card I have ever seen. You are so talented. My cards never come together very well.
Happy anniversary to your brother and sister-in-law
