Fancy Friday is For Family

It may not be the most obvious choice, but I chose to pair the Love You to Pieces and Rooted in Nature Stamp Sets for a family themed blog hop.  Keep scrolling and reading and I let you know my thought process.

This month's Fancy Friday theme is to create a project of our choice for any family member! It could be a birthday card for sister or brother, a Mother's Day card, Father's Day, Graduation, or whatever fits our family's event calendar.  On my calendar was the need for an anniversary card for... own 30th wedding anniversary!  That's right, Newel and I celebrated 30 years on April 5th.  I think the sentiment inside the card says it all.  We do fit!  We like the same spicy foods, style of eclectic home decor, genres of movies and music, places to vacation, series to binge and lots more.

I quite like how the puzzle piece shapes juxtapose with the leaves and woodgrain.  Knowing how to mix shapes or patterns is all about taking risks.  Sometimes it works and other takes end in the garbage can.  I love mixing major opposites like chicken and waffles or Diet Coke with caviar.  The same it true with paper crafting elements.

So, now you know why I picked the Love You to Pieces Stamp Set.  Now let me tell you why I chose the Rooted in Nature set.  It's really quite simple, it's because the imagery in the set and even the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder makes me think of my family tree.  All those bountiful branches who came before me and those sprouting now who will carry on our family names and traditions.

Who is next in your family to receive a hand stamped card from you?  Let's go check out what Dani is making and who she is sending it to.  #makeacardsedacard
