Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Celebrate

source: refinery29.com

To celebrate the Curtain Call's third anniversary, the Celebrate challenge will run the entire month of July!  The LEAD of this challenge will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!

Today's theme is "celebrate" and it is a perfect theme as today hubby and I celebrate 19 years of marriage!  We got married on Canada Day and I tease him by telling him it was so he would never forget our anniversary wink, wink {grin}.

Used this week's Paper Players sketch by my cyber friend Nance, and tried to keep things on the masculine side for hubby.  The word "blessed" is die cut from brushed gold card stock and thought the photo doesn't show it too well, the circle is stitched for a bit of interest.  Used this fabulous Cat's Pajamas heart die and added a few gold loops as per the sketch.  Hope he likes it!

For added inspiration, make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs noted below.


We are off to enjoy some family time together and then heading to a big BBQ with some friends tonite.  A wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary and Canada Day.

Remember, you have all month to play along with our Celebrate Challenge, and I look forward to seeing your creations.

MARISA...I've not forgotten about you...just been crazy busy! First, Belated Happy Anniversary...19 years! WOW! My husband and I will celebrate our 4th Anniversary (old bride, me...) in August (if he remembers *grin* He knows the month, at least, but the day, not so much. I'll be leaving him hints!). Your card is awesome; I know your husband loved this, as do I!! Going backwards, but catching up!
