Love & Laughter Anniversary | DancesWithHooves Paper Design


My parents’ Anniversary is right around the corner, and I’ve been ruminating on what to do for their card this year. It’s HARD to think up something for a couple to start with, further so when it’s my parents and I REALLY want them to like what I create!

Inspiration chosen you ask?

The bridesmaid dresses from their wedding photos. I have spent hours looking at those pictures of happy faces over the years, and the pretty hue of the baby blue dresses my aunt and two of mom’s best friends wore on that special day.

I’m told it was a VERY hot and humid and WINDY day that day, so I warmed up the tones in this card by balancing the blues with the soft brown tones.

Couldn’t help myself… I’ve got to share with you this cute dude I spotted at the county fair last week…

I think he overate at supper. HAHA!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today – you make my day when you do! 🙂
