Today's challenge at Friends of Speedy TV is to make a CAS card - Clean and Simple.  Now occasionally I find this easy but this one was a challenge.

I wanted to make a card for Dave for our Anniversary (yesterday) and I was trying to capture "our song" "You're in my heart" by Rod Stewart.  All I managed was the YOU firmly printed on the heart from the Love, Love, Love stamp set.  I used Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles and a simple piece of blue ribbon (blue for his football team) fastened into a masculine brad.  The card base was embossed with a Spellbinders folder. I used the VLVJul2013 Week 2 sketch.

The chorus of the song for those of you who don't know it goes like this
You're in my heart, you're in my soul
You'll be my breath should I grow old
You are my lover, you're my best friend
You're in my soul

Still appropriate after 34 years of marriage!  We took a trip to Littlehampton, walked by the sea, got sprinkled with rain a couple of times and had romantic fish and chips out of the paper sitting on a bench looking out over the river.

The inside of the card uses another set (Ivy and Blossoms) and looks like this

Wishing you all a very simple but special week. Hope you get to play the FOSTV challenge - challenge 83 from this page.


  1. Janine, First, Happy Anniversary! Congrats on 34 years!!! I get excited every time another year rolls around because these days it's rare to stay together so long. I think your card is gorgeous. The touch of blue is so as your husband's football team color! Love the heart! Great song too! Love Rod Stewart!

  2. Happy Anniversery!!!! Wonderful card in style and especially meaning!! Your dry embossing is beautiful!

  3. Congratulations on your 34th Anniversary. That is really something to be proud of these days. The card is great. I love the embossing. Did I miss it? what folder is that? Thanks for sharing.
