Pair of Anniversary Cards

Hey everyone - back today with a couple of anniversary cards. First up, one for my brother and his wife:

turtle pair
Supplies: Paper - Hero Arts A2 Sea card, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, scrap of kraft
Stamps - Hero Arts CM165 Color Layering Turtle (with matching dies) and
CL342 Everyday Sayings (retired); Simon Says Stamp Falling Hearts
Inks - various My Monthly Hero Kits
Other - foam tape, Duck Egg Blue Nuvo drops

D&D, as we call them, looooove turtles. When they went on a cruise recently, they were sure to take the turtle tour and made a pair of handmade drums with turtle designs for a drum contest. I couldn't resist making them a card with a pink girl and blue boy turtle using a fun color layering set from Hero Arts. I bought an extra set of the stamps and dies for Donna but I doubt she'll do anything like these crazy colors - LOL! I embellished a bit around the eyes with a calligraphy pen - too much? Anyway, definitely custom made for them!!

Next, a card for cousin Debi and her hubby:

Goldfish anniversary
Supplies: Paper - Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Pop-tone Snow Cone
Stamps - Hero Arts CL945 Color Layering GoldfishCM165 Color Layering Turtle (one of the seaweeds) and 
CL342 Everyday Sayings (retired)
Dies - Hero Arts DI348 Heart Confetti Fancy Die
Other - foam tape, Hickory Smoke Distress Ink, various My Monthly Hero inks

I was at a JoAnn's store the other day and spotted a 50% off sale on stamps so got a couple of color layering sets I had missed when Hero Arts released them, including these cute goldfish. I added some definition to the bodies with my calligraphy pen. They don't particularly love goldfish but I thought this pair would be cute kissing & with hearts going up instead of bubbles.

That's it for today and the rest of this week - looking forward to some holiday weekend fun! Thanks for stopping & I hope you'll check back on Monday for my Merry Monday post!
