Fall Anniversary - and an Update

An anniversary card for Jim's brother and sister-in-law. We got married on their eleventh anniversary:) We will be celebrating our fortieth on Sunday!

You'll be seeing this main image again next fall. The images are from a set from Cloud 9. I used SU! Earth Elements inks to stamp them. First I had stamped the background (from Tattered Angels) with a soft Memories ink. I matted with shimmery gold and mounted on foam squares. The sentiment is one of my few anniversary stamps and is by PSX. I embossed it with detail gold embossing powder. The card base is ivory.

I actually had a little time in my stamping room last night. It was very nice! I cleaned it up a bit and also made my October calendar pages for next year. I was trying to come up with something for November, but couldn't. It will come to me:)

About my dad - He really, really wanted to make a trip to Colorado to visit my younger brother, so when my older brother flew up from Georgia, my dad asked him to drive out there with him. That's where they are now. My younger brother will ride home with them. They found more cancer in his neck and removed it on Monday. He will be meeting with the oncologist next Thursday to discuss radiation again. My dad has said he will not do it. We'll see what happens. It's spreading pretty fast now.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Beautiful card! Congrats on your upcoming anniversary! Joe and I will be married 40 yrs. on the 16th. I will say some extra prayers so your dad changes his mind. The radiation will help. Take care and God bless.

I really like the anniversary card you made, especially the font of the words! Congrats to you on the anniversary of your own "I Do" Day! Prayers continue for your dad's health and for his many decisions that he must make.

What a beautiful card, Connie! Those leaves are so gorgeous and your neutral colors are very easy on the eyes. I'm sure your Dad is giving this a lot of thought and his oncologist will give him good advice. My best to him, you, and the family who loves him.
