65th Anniversary Card


One would think that with the current social distancing and stay at home COVID-19 situation that I would be crafting every day.

Nope. No crafty mojo here (must be locked down somewhere else!).

I’ve been walking most days (not fantastic during spring allergy time for me! The pollen really bothers me.), checking on my parents, playing Sudoku on my phone, and doing regular chores. My husband and I ventured out for a Safeway/Target run yesterday. Not crowded, per se, but more people than I expected. And some people are not good about the 6 feet of separation. I think I was holding my breath when people got too close.

SO…my in-laws are celebrating their 65th anniversary this week. I pulled out my supplies to make a card.

The silver mirror “shadow” of the numbers is difficult to see – it is mostly reflecting the bright pink of my pajamas! (I took the photo in the basement at night – it turned out incredibly well, all things considered. Just couldn’t get a shot that didn’t reflect the pink.)

Stay safe, keep the distance!

Supplies:  Stamps – JustRite, paper – Gmund Royal, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, ScrapBerry Mediterranean Dreams, Stampin’ Up! Silver Mirror, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Papertrey Ink (numbers), Taylored Expressions (banner), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

  2. Gorgeous card Kathy, and congrats to your in laws, 65 years is amazing! I think we just all need to be kind to ourselves and each other at the moment and that crafty mojo will return when the time is right. Take care of yourself xx

    • Thanks, Jenny! This is just such an odd time. Love your TP dragon today!

      • It is indeed,I can’t quite believe how life has changed so much in such a short time. I just keep trying to remember that it will pass and we are going to appreciate all the things we are missing out on at the moment. Aw thanks he made me smile!
