Architecture! My Favorite

Hello Everyone!!

For today I am hosting Make My Monday Challenge Blog!! But before I announce the theme for this week here is my card. Enjoy.

A very simple card for our wedding anniversary. The background features
patterned paper of a home with some simple banners to add a bit of color.

As some of you may have guessed our theme for this week is:

Adding a simple brown border with banners underneath made for a simple but effective
card the sentiment was typed on the computer and then printed out.
This card was made for my husband on our 12th wedding anniversary. By this time we have set roots in Michigan, bought a house, and had two children. We were definitely building our lives together. The house seemed very appropriate for the sentiment and was not too feminine to give to my husband.

 He loved the card and I was happy. As he was admiring it I told him I needed it back to be photographed and promised he would get it right back. His reply 'You better! If not, I know where you live!'. Even after all these years I still love his wit.

Time to turn in! Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you can stop hop on over to Make My Monday Challenge and see what the other talented DT's have conjured up. It is my hope that their inspiration will prompt you to play along. See you there or be square!

All the best,

So very clever and a wonderful use of patterned paper - I need you to teach me how to use PP/DP. Whenever I use it on my cards they look old fashioned. Clever, clever lady Karen xx
