I was forced to finish this card as they will be leaving for New Zealand as their 2 children's gift for them and they will be away for more than 2 wks. I'll still be making a gift for them and I'm still thinking what to make. ;-) Here's the card:
This is just a very simple card as you can see. Ruby red is associated with 40th wedding anniversary (as per my research) and since I don't have a ruby red, I chose something closer to that colour. Actually I have a ruby red from SU! earth colour family but the red is a bit pale. So, I used this Kisses red by Bazzill and embossed my Whisper White using my Cuttlebug Textile folder. I stamped the sentiment first before running it to my Cuttlebug and used my Olivia Alphas to die cut the numbers. Of course, I also used my Nestabilities (Petite Scallop circle) and put an organza ribbon on top of the red grosgrain so that the red ribbon will not look that bright.
Wish I could tell you more about what happened to me today but I still need to do some things. And besides, the ladies from our church decided to have dinner tonight so I will be out dining with the girls. Hubby will be the one to look after the kids (he's so sweet really)...after all, this is the very first time that I will go out since I got here in Australia almost 3 yrs ago. Can you believe that? ;-) I don't know, maybe it's just really normal that when you already have your own family and kids, you choose to go out with them rather than with anyone else. Maybe I just say this 'coz my closest friends are all in the Philippines. (ohh, I really miss them "sigh")
Will keep you posted when I come back. God bless us all!
