Here's my project for this week's challenge:

This is a card I made to celebrate my "first date" anniversary with my hubbie that's coming up in January.  Even after all these years we celebrate it and we love to give these kinds of cards to each other :)

The card shape came from the Artiste Cricut cartridge. It's an unusual shape but I loved that it had the heart cutout on the front.  You can find it on page 72, E2, Shift, Accent 1, < Valentne > cut at 4 1/2".  I used a piece of Hollyhock paper that came with our "Whoo's Your Valentine" kit.   The stamped images AND the glitter paper also came with the kit.  Love it!

I just thought it would make a fun card to give my husband.  The heart can be found on page 49, B9, Shift, Accent 1, < O > cut at 3" out of GLITTER PAPER!

I know it may sound silly to some to celebrate our first date, but we really like to do it and after all these years (TOO many to count), I think it's still special.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I can't wait to see your celebration project.

Have a wonderfully crafty day!
