Anniversary Card Request

I'm sorry it has been so long since I've posted, I have been getting ready to have a bridal shower for my future daughter!  This is exciting for us since Micah is the first to get married and then it will be my first "daughter"!!!!  She is such a sweetheart and we all really love her already.
Each month I meet with two groups of ladies/gent.  The request I had for Margarets group was for anniversary cards.  This is what I came up with and thy really liked them.  The "swing" card  I cut for them and made envelopes since they were a larger size.
  this kind of card is sooo easy to make now that stampin' up has come out with a die that cuts the swing part.(course I didn't have them at the making of this card)  but even without the "die" it isn't too hard.  If you'd like to learn how I could show you, just contact me and I'd love to come to your home(if you live close enough :)  and share with you and your friends!!!  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by and looking. If you come back next week I'll have pictures of what has been taking up my time - I have been in my craft room just not taking the time to post, sorry! Don't forget to come back - you won't be sorry :)

Bridal Shower invitations

Wow I can't believe that I haven't posted anything for almost a month!!  I have been stamping a little bit but this time of year I'm mostly canning...... green beans, soup beans, peaches, red beets, freezing corn, plenty of tomatoes, made sauce, pizza and plain, tomatoe soup, will be doing more tomatoes!!! We've had corn and I've frozen about 50 bags, yellow squash and zuchinni are doing well, I even have some spaghetti squash growing, it's the first time we've planted that.

Okay so on to stamping, I have been doing a little.  Right now I'm working on Bridal Shower cards, Micah our 2nd son is getting married in Nov. and I'm having a shower when his fiance - Stephanie and her mother come in Sept. I saw something like this on pinterest - this is my creation for invitations for the shower.  Let me know what you think.  :)
