So what is missing on my card? Well... if you said sewing, you would be right. I have been sewing my cards for so long it feels like it is missing something. Today while I was getting the elements for this card done, my puppy dog chewed through the cord for my foot pedal on my sewing machine.... insert sad face here. My hubby said he would fix it for me... add to that list my heat gun... Puppy chewed that cord off that yesterday. This card started as a thinking of you card and the further I went it turned into a Happy Anniversary card for my friend who is going to be celebrating 25 years this next week. Whoo hoo. That is something to celebrate. In honor of the 25, I added the little silver brads for their silver anniversary. I ended up using 5 Mark's Finest Papers sets: 1-Hum Along 2- Amaryllis Definition 3-Daffodil Greetings 4-Glad Glads and finally 5- Love love love. I did a lot of masking and fussy cutting, paper springs, glitter ....

Gorgeous work of art! I am right there with you on puppy chewing things! The man of the house decided to watch tv while lounging on the bed with our two pups last night while I was finishing some blog posts. He was not paying attention until the damage was done....BIG hole chewed in my favorite nightie...
