You Make My Heart Sing

 Our wedding anniversary is coming up soon.  I can't believe it has been 22 years!  Since I am back to having time to spend in the craft room, I knew I wanted to make a card for my hubby.  

After looking through my stash of images and stamps, I decided to use this oldie (but a goodie) from Meljen's Designs.  Although this is more of a Christmas / Winter image, I thought it would be perfect for an anniversary card for my husband.  Not only do these chickadees make a cute couple, but my husband keeps our bird feeders full so I can enjoy watching the birds all year.  

I printed the sentiments for the front of the card on vellum using my printer's "Best" setting.  Then I quickly poured on clear embossing powder and set it with my heat tool.  The hearts are die cut from a coffee sleeve from Panera.

I know the inside quote doesn't coordinate with the outside image, but it is a particularly accurate statement for our family's last few years.

Thank you for stopping by!  Stay safe!


  • Stamps:  Cozy Little Chickadees digital stamp from Meljen's Designs
  • Paper:  Simple Stories Winter Farmhouse 6x8 paper pad, Georgia Pacific white card stock, Papertrey kraft card stock, vellum

These sweet birds are adorable, but I must admit it was the inside sentiment that stole my heart. I've been with my hubby for 27 years now, and that could not be more true! Thank you so much for playing along at 2CCC and I hope you'll come back again soon!
