counterfeiting for our anniversary

It was our 3 year wedding anniversary yesterday, and I got the inspiration for a card for my husband from this sketch, set as a mini-challenge on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog:

Here's my card, created using bits from my counterfeit kit, including a Cosmo Cricket Togetherness-elements 'love' sentiment, Junkitz Salsa Dots paper, and a little girl and boy punched from pink and blue cardstock (click pic to see card larger):

I think it proves that we're meant to be together that we both chose cards with one detail in similar - I put the little 'you & me' sticker onto the card for him - and just look at the card he got for me:

Great minds think alike!

He also bought me these, which was a nice surprise:

I don't often get flowers from him, so I'm enjoying looking at these.

I also realised I haven't blogged about a layout and a card I created at the weekend for the Cocoa Daisy online crop. This layout was for a one hour challenge to use a hybrid element on your page. The background paper was from my counterfeit kit - a piece from DCWV Taj Mahal stack. Because the layout was made so quickly it's a lot simpler than my normal style and I'm not sure I'm entirely happy with it:

It was fun to try and get a page done so fast, but I don't think I'll pressure myself like this too often!

This card was for a challenge to create a tiny card, mine measures 10cm x 7.5cm:

I used only things I had to hand, mainly bits left over from the one hour challenge layout. 

That's all for today. I've signed up to both twitter and pinterest over the last couple of days, so if any of you use these let me know! I'll post my details for them on here once I've got the hang of it a bit more!
