Freshly Made Sketches: Love Always

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Amy.

My brother and sister-in-law had a stunning September wedding.  Their venue was an old stone church in the Colorado mountains surrounded by fall colors.  It was perfect in every way (other than the fact that the venue was double-booked so we all spent an hour in our wedding finery sitting in our cars on a dirt road - but it makes a great story now!)  So my anniversary card for them each year has to include a fall theme, but still fresh and clean for the wedding.

FMS Love Always

I love sparkle on fall cards.  It captures the golden glow and also the first frost.  It was absolutely required on this one because every time my nieces come over to craft, I have to replenish my bling supply!!  They made a birthday card for my brother once and they had the patience to glue 42 gems on it!!

I didn't decorate the inside so I didn't take a picture - but I have to tell you about a sentiment set I adore.  I think it's hard to find anniversary stamps for other couples.  There are a lot for you to give to your loved one - but not many for other couples. I adore The Inside Scoop - Anniversary.  (Actually all of The Inside Scoop series stay near my desk for the sentiments!)  This one is about half for your loved one and about half for other couples.  Here's what I put on the inside. Perfect!!

May you continue to enjoy
days filled with laughter,
months filled with joys, &
years of happy memories.

I hope to see you playing along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
