It's officially Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada! I love Thanksgiving! I cooked turnips, cranberries and pumpkin pie today! Turkey day tomorrow!!! I can't wait! Fall is my favourite of the seasons! I grew up in Eastern Ontario where the trees are so beautiful at this time of year! It's also the time of year that my husband and I got married...10 years ago! A week today (Friday) is our 10th anniversary! I can't believe it. 10 years have flown by! We have so much to be thankful for this weekend!
I needed to make a card for my husband to commemorate this special day but I find anniversary cards challenging to make! I decided to start with the sketch from Create with Connie and Mary and combine it with the SU-Only Challenge this week (Feel that Texture) and ta-da!
I decided to use the woodgrain embossing folder since I thought it would work best for this particular card! I also embossed the hearts in the same woodgrain embossing folder! I used the Early Espresso and the Cherry Cobbler Core-dinations cardstock so that I could sand it!!!
Our wedding colours were cranberry and gold and I figured this card kinda matched that!
