Happy Anniversary to my second set of Parents!

Hello Everyone!

Today is my in-laws anniversary!  They are two very special people and I am one lucky girl to have such a wonderful set of second parents!  They have a very special love for each other that is to be admired.  There is never a struggle to large for them.  They always kiss good bye if one leaves the other and always hold hands when out in public.  When I seen this digi stamp, I immediately thought of them.  My FIL can be such a card, but is the sweetest, gentlest man you will ever meet.  My husband would tell you otherwise from his stories growing up.  We now laugh at how he interacts with his grandchildren vs his own children.  My MIL is a very crafty, kind and compassionate lady with several stories of her own.  When we are all together there is always a roar of laughter.

The stamp is a Geeky Love Digi Stamp by Make it Crafty.  I did not size down the image before I printed it so I ended up have a 5x7 card.  Larger than I usually work with.  For some reason I have an aversion to that 5x7 size.  I looked around on the SCS site and found a dutch fold card tutorial.  I converted the sizes to make a 5x7 and I am much happier with the results than a plain old card.  You can find the tutorial here.  The paper is by cosmo cricket.  Lastly the front was dazzled up with a few jewels and a flower airbrushed to match the papers.

The inside sentiment was printed from the computer.  I found this on a sheet of cosmo cricket strip tease paper.  I thought is was very fitting for this cute stamp.

Happy Anniversary to my in-laws!
