Happy Anniversary!

Hi Everybody,

19 years!  I cannot believe it!  We have been married 19 years today.  I made my very wonderful husband a card (and tickets to a concert) to celebrate.  Tonight, instead of a romantic dinner, we are going to a local Mexican restaurant for a Boy Scout's Eagle project fundraiser and taking our son to baseball practice - ah, family life!  Sweet!

I used the new Every Day Pop-Up Cards and Calligraphy Collection for the flourishy heart on the top.  My paper is My Mind's Eye, Laundry Collection.

I gotta say the pop-up cards are hard to use.  I used a website on which has photos of how to fold and glue most of the pop-ups.  Unfortunately, not this one.  It seemed so easy until I had to glue it down.  I made a quick one from plain white cardstock and played with it until it worked!  Strange that Cricut didn't have a better booklet with this cartridge. 

I cut the heart out twice from the Calligraphy Collection cartridge.

A little ribbon tied all the way around the card and under part of the open heart.

My Mind's Eye packet also came with rub-on lettering.

The pop-up!  I used a scrap piece of brown card stock behind the lettering so you could read it more easily.

Thanks for looking!
