Anniversary card

Good morning! Monday was me and Sam's six year anniversary, which is why I didn't post like I usually do. We had a really nice day. We went canoeing, and out for a nice dinner. He also surprised me with a Cricut!! What a sweetie! A couple of months ago I was looking in the Walmart sales paper and saw a Cricut, and I jokingly said to hubby "hey you wanna buy me one of those?" Well apparently he's been putting aside a little money each week so he could get it for me mrgreen! He also got me the Sure Cuts A Lot program! That thing is awesome! I will never have to buy a cartage for this thing! I've already added tons of fonts, and dingbats. Now that I can make great titles so easily, I have no more excuses not to scrapbook! I found a really great set of dingbats HERE that have a bunch of shapes like nesties. Here is the anniversary card I made for Sam.

This card took forever! I used Michelle Zindorf's brayered sky technique. I must have done the main image for this card 15 times! I kept messing something up. It's funny, my first two came out perfect, but I forgot to put in the moon on the first, and on the second the sentiment wasn't inked up well enough. I'll probably just case myself and make some of these for Father's Day too. The boat and the cattails are from Impression Obsession. It was one stamp, but I cut it apart so the boat could be a little further away.
