Gingerbread couple for an anniversary

Happy Sunday! Here in Minnesota we're eagerly awaiting the big play-off game: Vikings vs the Saints. Since we're hosting the Super Bowl in a few weeks, we're hoping the Vikings get to play!! Meanwhile, I'm popping in to share an anniversary card I made for my aunt & uncle who're celebrating 35 years together. My aunt called to say they received the card in yesterday's mail so I'm free to post it.

Supplies: Paper - Paper Studio brown & turquoise; BoBunny Woodland Winter; Lawn Fawn Knit Picky
Stamp - Hero Arts CL272 All Occasion Messages (retired)
Dies - My Favorite Things Die-Namics Blueprints 13; Hero Arts DI334 Nesting Hearts Infinity Dies
QuicKutz gingerbread people (retired)
Other - ribbon from a My Monthly Hero kit, Ground Espresso Distress Ink

Last fall I die cut a bunch of gingerbread people from some scraps of brown. Used a couple on this card, but the rest were looking for a home. I decided a couple would be cute on an anniversary card. I edged them with a bit of Distress Ink for some pop. Given a winter anniversary, I chose paper from wintery collections. Some die cutting, a stamped sentiment, small bow, & done!

Thanks for stopping & be sure to check back tomorrow to see my card for the next Merry Monday challenge. GO VIKINGS!!

What a great January anniversary card, Linda! The papers & the gingerbread men are perfect! Boy oh boy--thought it wasn't going to happen & then they won after all! We think it'd be so cool to have a home game for the Super Bowl, so with our team out we cheered for the Vikings. Can only imagine what Minneapolis is going to be like this week--so fun!
