Heartfelt Thanks

On the 28th of December, my husband and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary and close friends of ours took us out to a wonderful dinner to celebrate. I made them this thank-you card because they made everything incredibly special and fun for us.

I cut some red felt with a SSS heart & thank-you die. The thank-you sentiment was cut with a Kaisercraft die and covered with glittered Nuvo drops for a little sparkle and shine. I used a SU! softly falling ef for the background and added some tiny red gemstones here and there for the final touch. This is the first card I've made in well over a week or two, so it felt good to get back into crafting once again.

I'm sharing this over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge which is "anything goes."

Happy New Year to everyone, and thanks for being a part of my world in this crafty journey. You all mean so much to me with your visits and kind comments.
 I hope 2019 brings everyone peace, happiness, good health, prosperity, and much love.

Ackk! It was on my calendar and I completely missed it, Carol. I'm so sorry! Happy Belated Anniversary! WOW, 50 years is simply amazing, especially when you don't feel a day over 32 - not counting the aches and pains, lol! Your evening out sounds very special and that's reflected in your pretty and heartfelt thank you card!! Happy New Year! Hugs, Darnell
