50 years – WOW!

My parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this year.  And they still walk around holding hands.  It’s really cute.  To celebrate, they took all the kids, grandkids, and great-grandkid on an Alaskan cruise.  We actually went last summer because it worked the best logistically.

We’re having a surprise “party” for them today at the campground where they go every Memorial May weekend with my brother and sister.  campeur.gif Camping image by sakuranohana_2007I don’t camp.  I’m happy to go up for the day, but I prefer to go home to my comfy bed without bugs and with a private bathroom, thank you very much!

Here is the card I made for their Anniversary.  This is such a cool technique!  One of the names I’ve heard it called is Watercolor Reinker Splash.  It was a Wow! technique from the Seattle Regional Seminar.  That’s one of the great things about being a Stampin’ Up!© demonstrator – you get to go to great regional events (when they’re in your area) and learn lots of awesome stuff!  Don’t forget the $75 Scrapbooking Starter Kit special ends May 31st.  It’s a great opportunity to  join SU at an excellent price!  Click the picture in the right hand sidebard to learn more.

Mom & Dad anniversaryBack to the card.  I ♥ the way the colors blend together with this technique.  I think this will definitely be a very near future technique class!  

This layout is from Kerin Sylvester’s sketch challenge.  Loved the sketch and just had to pair it with this technique.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t figure out a way to put a 50 on the card without it looking, well, wrong.  So I just left it off.

The words “happy” and “always” aren’t blurry IRL (in real life).  I stamped first in Summer Sun, but it faded more than I liked, so I stamped over it with Rose Red.
