Anniversary Challenge!

Hello everyone!  What a day I have had!  This morning I cleaned up the house, started dinner, baked a banana and chocolate cake and did some laundry. Than I went downtown for training as I am working the election!  Came home, rushed finishing supper and brought it to our close friends and had supper with them.  They just had a baby!  It was nice to spend the evening with them and cuddle a little newborn baby!  I also did some grocery shopping!  What a busy day!  I am looking forward to going to bed earlier tonight!

Today I have another challenge card from my pairing challenge that Charlene and I are doing!  We challenged each other to make anniversary cards!  Here is mine:

I am loving my new poppy stamp set!  I stamped the poppies first and colored them with the barn door distress ink, than sprayed with perfect pearls and water!  I stamped the flourish background with photo distress ink and the edges.  Stamped the poppies on top colored the stems and cut out the colored poppies and attached them and added black pearls I colored with a sharpie! 

Please make sure to check out Charlene's card too here

Well I am going to run and watch some tv, Glee here I come!  Sigh my PVR is too full of good shows!  :>
