10 years!

**This card was made for the Pumpkin Spice DT call!**

So, yesterday (Thursday) was the hubster's and my 10 year wedding anniversary! If only I still looked like this:
Can you see the crinkle in the middle of the pic?? Just as I was about to snap a picture of it (so that I could upload it to FB and tag everyone in it!) Stinkerbella snatched it and ran! Boy is she quick! I like to call this 20 month old phase "tornado!" Okay, back to the card...Here's a little something I whipped up for the hubster:
We {love} the beach and used to live so close to it, so when I saw this stamp set by Scrappy Moms I knew I needed it for this card! Here's the set I used, it's called "Sun Kissed."
I stamped the sentiment and then punched it out with one of my SU oval punches.
This is a 5.25" x 5.25" square card. The background circle is from Accent Essentials. The sun and clouds are from the Pop up Neighborhood cartridge. The surfboards, waves, and starfish are from Life is a Beach. The "sand" is actually snow from Jolly Holidays.
I added some thin twine to the bottom of the card and to the sentiment, inked everything in Tim Holtz' Tea Dye ink, and TONS of foam dimensionals.

My favorite paper right now is Echo Park Paper (not used on this card, but I just picked up some cute pieces of the Country Drive line and will be posting something soon!)
Happy Anniversary to my HOT hubby! I love you tons, (and if possible I think I've fallen in love all over again...just watching him with our daughter)! Boy, I sure wish I had a piece of this cake...yum!
Happy crafting <3 Kristy
