Anniversary Card

 It occurred to me that the donkey stamps could well be used for a Valentine card but in the end I decided to make a fun Anniversary one instead. Started with the square lattice background which was die cut and backed with a piece of text paper, then the two hearts were cut with the white one being embossed and brushed lightly with some red ink.  Donkeys were stamped, coloured and fussy cut and finally the sentiment added.  Very low temperatures again today - brrr!!

Stamps - Darling Donkeys set from ZStampin' Up
Sentiment - words from two separate freebie stamp sets
Text - from an old Papermania paper pad
Lattice die - Tonic die which I've had for some years
Hearts - Tonic dies, also been in my stash for years


  1. Your Donkeys make a great Anniversary card it


  2. These donkeys are such fun Val! Great card. x

  3. Hi Val

    My, oh my! Where have I been? Or have you been being super hyperactive?

    So many lovely cards on your blog that I have missed .. .. sorry!

    This one made me smile with the two donkeys. Love the text background behind the trellis diecut!

    Love Jules xx

  4. Why not, everyone loves donkeys! They are really fun. Someone is going to love it. Stay warm inside. x

  5. This is so fun with the two donkeys! When you've been married a long time, cards like this are very welcome for a few good chuckles! Great idea, and a fun card too!
