Love You Tons

I don't think I dare admit to how long ago I spotted this matching stamp and die set on a blog and felt I must have it, I do know it was a long, long time ago and to my shame this is the first time it has been used.  Most of you will know how dangerous it can be reading blogs and seeing items which  other people are using - items which really should come and live with me as well!!  I am trying to curb my enthusiasm somewhat because I've accumulated so much 'stuff' over the years but we've all been there haven't we??

Anyway I thought I'd make an Anniversary card with these dinky elephants using the words which came along with the stamps.  Doing this I'd say has made an 'our' anniversary card rather than a 'your' one but I'm sure someone will spot it in my box and decide it is just for them.  The elephants were die cut and stamped before popping them onto a die cut stitched label and stamping the words; finally adding a punched heart and a banner underneath with a sentiment.  I did a few spare elephants while I was cutting and stamping and I'm sure they will appear sometime on a different card - I don't think I've ever knowingly made exactly the same card twice; not into batch production!

  2. A beautiful anniversary card Val, I know what you mean about spotting something you just have to have and then not using it for such a long time.

  3. This is just adorable and a perfect anniversary card for those who are into Cute cards! Tell me, how does one curb one's enthusiasm for buying stamping products? I have yet to figure that one out! LOL Maybe we bloggers should just get together and have a big swap! LOL
