FWF: The Fast and the Furious

Yay for summer!

I threw this anniversary card for my parents together while trying to get ready to leave for my own anniversary. My parents have been together for 43 years now. Holy Cow. Today I read a blog post on how to stay together for 15 years and even  that in today's society is a lot. I hope that in the next 33 years I will appreciate and laugh at my husband's jokes just as much as my mom still laughs at my dad's awful puns.


Since summer's here, I have lots of time to read now that I'm not chauffeuring as much as I used to. I read a tutorial the other day where the stamper inked the negative areas of her embossing folder and then embossed a piece of cardstock, so I tried it. I love how it turned out! Very cool effect. And easypeasy. Yay for that.

That's such a sweet card! Congrats to your folks on their anniversary. My parents are celebrating their 48th in two weeks. They say that time really flies! I believe them. Hey, I recognize that MME paper--I still have some in my stash!

Forty-three years is awesome! That is quite an accomplishment anymore. The colors are so pretty, Sarah! I love how the elegant the embossing folder looks.
