Happy Anniversary Mum and Dad

Hi there

Today my parents are celebrating their 54th wedding anniversary.  Back when they got married Valentine's Day wasn't so commercial but I don't think Dad will ever forget his wedding date with all the advertising that goes with 14th February.

Here is the card I made for him to give Mum.  The card is called a Penny Spinner card.  The spinning Heart using the Hearts Collection Framelits and a Shaker Frame filled with Glass Glitter.  It's actually part of the project I created for Stampin Fun and Friends.  At the time of making the project I knew I would give it to Dad to give to Mum so tailered it with her in mind.

At the moment Mum & Dad are in Sydney seeing Dad's sister who was diagnosed with cancer last year and this year they have found she has a brain tumour.  I took them out to the airport at 6:45am and while having my shower (this is where I get my best ideas!) realised that Mum wouldn't have had time to make Dad a card as they had just got back from holiday.  I was trying to think what I had on my desk that I could use to make a quick card.  I found I had some hearts cut out of glimmer paper so attached them with bakers twine to the front, quickly stamped 'Happy Anniversary' and the front was done.  For the inside I used the heart embossing folder and ran that through on my insert and attached it all together - nothing flash but a card made in under 5 minutes!  Isn't it great to be able to create something so quickly and give away to fill a need.  I am not an early morning person so was rather pleased with my creation - I didn't have time to take a photo but was rather pleased with my early morning creation.  Mum really appreciated it.
