From my hubby

I thought I would share with you the project my hubby did for me for our 30th Anniversary :)  It isn't a card, he made a 1/4 inch box with the scorpal and as you can see used all kinds of embellishments.  The image is clipart, and the sunset he did using one of his paint programs, he has a couple so I am not sure which one he said he used.  He used a Victorian image (that he hand cut out) because he knows I love movies in that era.  He said the bird is in there because he liked it didn't mean anything, LOL!


He spent quite a few hours before our anniversary punching out leaves of all sizes and colors, and just kept saying he had a project in mind, I never thought it was for me.  We also went hunting for small stars one time and now I know why.

Here is a little closer shot of all the embellishing.


He used gems, sequins, gears, the stars are the confetti you can find at the party store and target.  He was going to try and use my branch die but he thought that you probably wouldn't be able to see it with all that leaves and stuff he added so he went without it.  Pretty cool huh!!  I told him I will put it out every fall.

We are at peak here in southern Illinois, the trees are just beautiful, although we are getting rain and is suppose to continue through tomorrow so we probably won't have many more left on the trees after all that.

Wishing you a good week ahead,
Thanks so much for stopping by,
Connie
