SCS~A Fan Club Member PLUS

You wouldn't believe the great work you see over on the Fan Club member side...not to mention the great challenges! I became a fan club member some time back, but finally got the cajones to try their challenges. So for today, I made this card for the Fan Club Members 08 Dedicated To The One I Love challenges.

For the Central Theme: Stamping for Valentines, friendship, and all those that make our life grand! I decided to go ahead and finally make my 10 year anniversary card to my DH!

I also used the sketch: DSKETCH0108 http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...p;d=1197753297

and last but not least...The Inspiration piece: DINSP0108 http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...p;d=1197756909
I used the floor piece as the inspiration for the DP.

Hope you like, and TSMFL!! This is my FIRST EVER try at the fan club members challenge and I can say I'm pretty happy with the outcome.

I'm gonna write something mushy inside to give to my DH. I'll be honest, making this card for our 10 year anniversary made me cry. I mean I was litterally tearing up as I was making it. We have been thru so much...more downs than up, so 10 years to me, even with his meddling family outcasting me because I'm a "big lady", 10 years to me is a HUGE milestone. I hope for 10 more...I HOPE!

CS: CChip, nude, ivory, & Provo Crafts Slab XL DP
Ink: Black Staz-On, CChip, Antique Linen Distress Ink, & Prismacolor markers
Stamps: Couple vendor unknown & Sentiment by Stampendous
Embellishments: chocolate satin ribbon, brads, wire works for "rings", & sticky bling for earring and ring

Congrats on your ten year anniversary; that's awesome and so is your stunningly gorgeous card. LOVE the image against the paper. :0) Mel
P.S. That's too bad about his family. I've become quite full-figured and I find people can be so narrow-minded. I'm so glad it hasn't stopped you from being happy! :0)

Lots of challenges covered in one amazing card! Congrats on the many years together! And as far as his family goes, anyone who would ostracize a woman (or man) for being larger, well, that's incredibly small minded. Look at what you've managed to overcome! The next 10 years will be no problem.
