365 Cards - Thursday sketch

♥♥♥ ♥♥♥

Wow, this card didn't turn out ANYTHING like I had envisioned, not even one iota. 365 Cards continues with its sketch week. I think I may try this one again down the road, since you can only see the bare bones of that sketch in here, if you squint your eyes real tight and wave your wand over it ...

Although the background looks like kraft cardstock, it is really a metallic (copper) kind of paper that looks really rich.

I made this one for Dom for our 33rd wedding anniversary, which is next month. He hasn't had one moment to look at my blog most of July, so I can keep it secret. There are lots of stickles on here, of course, my camera never sees them, but they are there.

And now, sigh, it is 5:30 and no one has made me dinner, sigh, so I guess I just hafta pop that quiche in the microwave myself, and eat on a tray in front of the tv, sigh. He says no work tomorrow night or this weekend, I am unbearably grateful...

♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥


  1. The colours on here are amazing and the sentiment so sweet after so many years together.Hope the quiche was OK. Have a great weekend with Dom ,perhaps you could cook his favourite meal and enjoy some down time.
