Anniversary Tag Card

Today I have an Anniversary tag card to share.  I used several dies I've had for some time but have not used -  it was good to get them out of their storage envelopes to see the light of day!
I used a lovely heart embossed tag die called Love Tags by Lil' Inker Designs - cutting one out of striped paper and one out of white card stock, the boy and girl dies from Boy Meets Girl from MFT and the hearts are from the Love Note die set from Reverse Confetti.  I also used a sentiment die from MFT that I use quite a lot!  I tied the two tags together off center with a piece of twine and adhered them to the card base.

My card design was inspired by these combined challenges:

I'm also entering this in Time Out Challenge - Celebrations.

The weekend passed by so quickly didn't it?!  Kent and I did a lot of cleaning in the house on Saturday morning followed by some stamping in the afternoon  - then today after church we went to visit my stamping friend Anne.  Her husband had hip replacement surgery 2 weeks ago and is doing quite well. We shared a meal and had a lovely time chatting as we always do.  

And some great news!  Claire is going to be releasing 8 new Waltzingmouse stamp sets on August 27th!  The Design Team will be posting sneak peeks starting on August 24th -  you won't want to miss them!!
