VV16 - How Much?


Today is our 18th wedding anniversary. This is not the card I made for Michael (come back on Tuesday, for my CASology post), but one that came about while I was playing last week. I was looking at the Love You So set from Essentials by Ellen. I always thought that the arrow on this stamp did not extend far enough (sorry, Julie! lol!) to express how much a person might love another person, so a little simple masking allowed me to show an even bigger love. This idea seems so obvious to me now, that I'm convinced that I may have seen it somewhere, but I can't really remember - if it was you, please let me know so I can give you credit!

I left it very simple, and I may include it in Struan's bag - he's leaving today for a 6 week Aircraft Maintenance course through the Air Cadet program. He's never been this far away for this long (although I admit to days of wishful thinking! lol!). Seriously, we're very proud of him and will miss him (especially on lawn mowing days!) and we wish him the best as he takes this next step in his 'flight path'!

I'm linking up to Virginia's View 16 - 100% Stamped. There are some really clever cards in the gallery, make sure to check it out!

Congratulations with your anniversary Ardyth!
I think this card exactly shows what 'less is more' means and says all you need to say!

Love this CAS OL card and I think it would be perfect for Struan to find while away from home. Good luck to him!

Love this CAS card Ardyth! Those arrows are fun and of course are perfect for showing one how much you love them. Happy 18th Anniversary too!! I can "hear" how proud you are of your son and you have every right to be proud of him. His is accomplishing a lot it sounds like!! Yes, you will miss him. I miss our youngest when he will leave for his second year of college next month, but I won't miss his messes. lol Hugs, Brenda
