Anniversary & Play Time (cards that is)

Ah....I saw where your minds went immediately when you saw Anniversary and then the words play time....come on girls! (**wink**)
This first picture is the most beautiful flowers DH sent me for our anniversary - 15 years on 2/22/07. He sure knows how to spoil a girl...and I love it! Since you spend more time at work than at home; I left them at work so I could enjoy them next week - they'll last for quite some time.
I also took Friday afternoon off to have lunch with my hubby - a rare occurrence; then I had the afternoon to play. Well...that was after I did some shopping, then figured the money for Girl Scout Cookies - THEN I finally got down to business. These next 2 cards are for another card set for a friend. The first uses the flowers from the Happy Harmony Set - I spritzed them with water and stamped onto watercolor paper - they're bright; but I love the watercolor effect. The word in the lower right-hand corner says friends - I wrote it myself and I NEVER, EVER, EVER write in cursive. My name is the ONLY thing I write in cursive...but it'll work. I punched it out with Stampin' Up's word punch and adhered with pop dots. The inside says "A Friend Loves At All Times"; I like how it turned out.
The last card is one that I embossed with the "Stylized Flowers" Cuttlebug folder - I sure love those things! I then ran a piece of blue cardstock through using the same Cuttlebug folder. I then stamped the saying "Faith makes things possible not easy" on white cardstock and adhered to the blue cardstock. I like this one too - simple, yet elegant. What do you think?

I've had a great afternoon of free time - I seldom get time all by myself, I've enjoyed it immensely. I made LOTS of other things too; so you'll have to stop by and check them out. I hope to get them loaded this weekend!
We've got another busy weekend - 3 basketball games tomorrow, church tomorrow night...and then maybe some rest on Sunday? I hope you each have a great weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!! ~M.
