Happy 25th Anniversary!!!




My friend Cheryl and her husband Denny are celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary. They were high school sweethearts, have three grown children and two grandchildren now. You just don't hear of too many relationships like that lasting anymore.




Her daughters threw them a surprise party today and so for a gift I made them a tile using my Cricut and Stampin' Up vinyl that had their name and est. 1985 on it. I didn't take a picture of the tile but I did take a picture of the wrapped gift and the matching card.




Can you guess what the wrapping paper is? Yep, it is packing paper from Stampin' Up. When I first started selling Stampin' Up, I saved everything. I would even save the packing paper and then iron it. Of course I quit that a long time ago (you can just buy a roll of it for a $1 at the Dollar Tree) and I just used up the last of what I had saved.

I used my new favorite stamp set - Just Believe. This set is great for just about any kind of card.

I know I said I would show you more of my open house projects, and I will, but I just wanted to share this one with you first.

Thanks for looking,
Kim

Kim great blog and loved your card and wrapping paper. I used to save that paper too............ but I never stamped on it. I ironed it and used it on my table to protect it during stamping classes. Found your blog through your post on blog surf Stampin Connection. Will be back to visit again!

Lovely gift and card. Great idea to "re purpose" the package paper.
