Laughing in Love...

I actually completed an anniversary on time.  Miracle of miracles.  LOL.  I seem to be 2-3 weeks late anymore.  Of course that doesn't say I'll get the card to my friends on time, especially as they are going out of
town for about a week.  Oh well, I have the best intentions. I love to use the young images to portray a happy couple, I guess it's because they are less likely to be upset by each other early in their marriage.  LOL.  Plus they are cute!  These are a couple of Mo Manning's images.  The background comes from Make it Crafty at and they work great with other images.  While Mo gives permission to "merge" the images together, I decided to actually cut them out and give it more of a 3d effect.  I cut "Cherry" and popped her with one layer of mounting tape.  I popped "Monday's Child (boy) with two layers of mounting tape.  Oh, and I flipped her so she was facing him.  (Aren't digis grand?)

This week at Mo's challenge, the challenge is tags.  I've never been much on doing tags, mainly because I just don't think about them.  The page below this is the inside bottom of the card; this is usually where comments are pre-printed by the card company.  I normally will stamp something appropriate here if I know what or who the card is for.
Below this is the card completely opened.  Here you will see that I leave the top blank for a personal comment.

And last, but not least is the back of the card.  I usually place some kind of cute image, sentiment, or Bible Scripture at the top.

My ingredients are:
Images: Mo's Digital Images & Making it Crafty background
Fiskar's Stamp around the page punch
Recollections pearls, roses
White flowers, paper, baby bow from Michael's
Ribbon/lace with pearls - Joann's

Oh my goodness! Your card is darling! I love your little stamped images of the little boys in overalls and the little girl in the green pinafore. Darling images and wonderful colorization. Your little flowers, buttons, layered died cuts and the other embellishments you used to design this card all work together so well. Thank you for sharing your card with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. <3 Candy
