Wedding Anniversary Card

Hello blog readers and fellow bloggers! Happy Saturday!! Hope everything's doing well with you and the rest of your families. We're all doing fine also by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. I've been busy doing the laundry since this morning but I was able to make a card for our Pastor and his wife for their 40th wedding anniversary. Wow! 40yrs! They're so blessed!

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!
