Today is our wedding anniversary. A typical day in our lives - we woke up and Kerry had a bad cold and I said, "OK, I will NOT be kissing you today!!!" LOL!!!
Traditionally, we are supposed to give each other gifts of wool or copper this year. Hmmmm - I think I'll pick both!! We've been married for 7 years. I keep telling him I'm waiting for him to get the "seven year itch" and he keeps replying, "My arthritis is so bad I couldn't scratch a thing!" Oh, he does make me laugh!!!
Guess I'll keep him another year!!!
I used Amaco's copper and heat painted it. Then embossed it, then sanded off the embossed areas to bring the copper back to the candles and flames:
And then I knitted a tiny little rug out of wool - using copper tubes as I don't have tiny knitting needles. OK, I probably won't do this again....but it's perfect for this card. I left 1 copper tube in and twisted the ends to hold the knitting in place.
And I wrote the poem:
You've kept the candles burning bright
Thru thick and thin, both day and night
You give me hope, you bring me light
You are my love, my soul's delight!
Who knew copper and wool could be so cool??
PS - He loved the card!!!
