I’d Be Lost

Cottage Greetings, Stampin' Up!, TravelerWhen I received my latest Stampin’ Up! order yesterday and saw the “I’d Be Lost Without You” sentiment in the Cottage Greetings stamp set, I had to use it. I thought it would be fun with the World Map background stamp and the Traveler set.

I stamped the background in Sahara Sand on Very Vanilla Card stock. Then I added the Traveller images in Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, and Pacific Point. The Arrows embossing folder added a fun touch – and then I inked it a bit with more Crumb Cake to bring out the embossing.

Finding a banner long enough for the sentiment was a challenge at first, but then I remembered the Gift Card Envelope and Trims Thinlits. Perfect! The burlap ribbon added the perfect mat for it.

This card sums up how I feel about Mike. Our lives have had ups and downs over the past 33 years of marriage (mostly ups! YAY!), but no matter what situation we’re in, if we’re in it together, we’re ok. I cherish every minute we have together, and I’m looking forward to growing old with that man. I can’t imagine what we’ll be like in another 30 years, since we can each read the other’s thoughts now.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.  Have a wonderful day!

  1. I love the sweet sentiment accompanying this card and I assure you “the best is yet to come” with that attitude. Thirty years from now? HaHa – try wrinkles, a few achy joints, etc, etc – but I think my boy is more handsome and dear at 83 than when we were married. The wrinkles have settled in nicely!!!!
