I made today's card in honor of my wonderful parents, who today are celebrating forty-five years of marriage. How great is that?!?! Happy Annivesary, Mom and Dad!! I love you, and hope Terry and I grow up to be just like you!
I had the idea for this card in my head as soon as I first saw the sentiment "You're still the one" from Verve's new Feeling Groovy set. But I needed to find a suitable stamp. After searching through the online sites of many popular stamp manufacturers and finding nothing, I finally googled "old couple rubber stamp" and turned up an Etsy site with loads of unique (mostly discontinued) rubber stamps. This was almost exactly what I hoped to find. Isn't it perfect? What I love most are the man's shoes -- they look just like the Hush Puppies my dad got for Christmas every year when I was a kid. He's probably still wearing them!
The stamp is made by Art Impressions. (I don't see it on their website, so I suspect it's retired, but I do see lots of other fun images!). All of my coloring was done with Prismacolors and Gamsol. The paper is from Basic Grey's "Sugared" line.
Thanks for stopping by!
