Julie: Anniversary card, Octopode Factory style

Hello again.
Last time I was with you I shared the birthday card I'd made for my other half and now I'm back with his anniversary card:
There's nothing that quite says 'Happy 19 years of knowing you' like a cute snail stamp is there?

The stamp is from The Octopode Factory a really fun, unique brand that Jean is now stocking, so if you like something a bit different ... hop over there to check out the other designs. [Stick around for some new designs coming soon too!]

Behind the stamped image I used a circle of Collections Elements 'Noir et Creme' patterned paper:
There are also some lovely new printed tissue paper designs from Collections Elements in the shop and a really lovely chipboard printer's tray too.

Finally, the greeting on my card was cut from the endlessly useful [I've used mine non-stop since I got them] tiny cardstock alphas, again from Collections Elements:
I think that's possibly the last handmade card he'll be receiving from me for a while [until Christmas at least] ...as I'm fast running out of occasions.
Although ... thinking about it ... there's always ... Happy First Tomato of the Season, or I'm So Glad You Made Tea or even Welcome Home from Work ....and .....

... and those individual cardstock letters are going to come in so handy for spelling out all my new occasions!

Happy crafting.
