Happy anniversary Steve!

Today is our wedding anniversary - officially we've been married for 4 years but together for 14 years!  My guilty secret is that I have forgotten our anniversary two or three times (bad Mary!) so I made sure this year that I got ahead with my card!!!

Now Steve doesn't really like my cards (he's as honest as a die, a trait that I highly admire in people) so I don't know why I bother making him them for him, but hey, you gotta try!  So we'll see if he likes this one this year...

I'm not sure if I like it, ROFL!!  Bit too plain methinks and perhaps could have used the space better...maybe more buttons...maybe some string.... Well it's done now so it can stay as is!

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, BasicGrey Marjolaine paper pad (15% off at the moment from Quixotic Paperie here)
Stamps: Woodware sentiment
Mediums: black ink
BasicGrey button

Tools: Nestabilities heart and label dies, EK Success border punch

A fab card. I love the simple design.
Steve always comes up with 'constructive' criticism for my cards, but I do like having another opinion sometimes, even if I ignore his advice!
Happy anniversary.

Oh Happy Anniversary to you both!

I love the card LOTS, it's so simple and has a 'quality' feel to it.

I have to say I can't believe anyone wouldn't like your cards but each to their own, I am sure he can't not like this!

Lots of Love

Happy Anniversary Mary J! This card is great! Perfect for a man card! My hubby is a bit the same... I don't think he doesn't like the cards, he's just indifferent. Boys!

Hope you had a wonderful day!
