Happy Anniversary!

Hi, there!

I hope you had a great weekend!  It certainly was a hot one here in the 90's...whew!  I'll talk more about that in a few.  But, first I want to share with you a card that I made for my sis and her hubby.  They will be celebrating their 49th anniversary on July 8th!  I'm entering the card over at Simon Says.  The theme is...add shimmer.  And, here is my card...

For my card, I started with a pink card base and paired it with flamingo paper.  I embossed a heart and cut it out.  I colored part of the scallops with a black copic marker.  The MFT flamingos and hearts were die cut and placed on the heart.  I added Wink Of Stella to their beaks and wings.  Gems were added for interest.  The MFT scallop borders were die cut and placed.  The sentiment is from MFT, also.  A little black bow with black pearl cotton for the final touch.

We had a busy weekend meeting up with our son and his friend, Bryan.  We traveled both Saturday and Sunday to get together with them.  We had a conference on Saturday and met them for dinner.  On Sunday, we went back to go to the Columbus Zoo.  The heat was very oppressive!  I'm used to air conditioning.  So, we stayed for only a few hours, but we did have a good time!  And, here are a few photos...

Well, that's all for now, friends!  I hope you have an awesome week!  Take care!



  1. Very pretty card, Maria! I'm sure your sister and her husband will love it. Definitely do not like heat and humidity--I'll take winter anytime. Looks like the tigers can't take the heat either.
