35th Anniversary card

I SHOULD be in my studio working on some upcoming assignments. I also am almost finished cleaning and putting things back in order from my last classes. But...I'm sitting reading Blogs instead. Does anyone else think Blogs are a black hole that sucks in time? I can sit down and the next thing I know it is an hour later! lol!

I was talking with my friend/customer yesterday and she mentioned that she and her husband were going away for a week because it was their 35th wedding anniversary this weekend! I quickly made up this card for them. The tag pulls out from behind the truck from Loads of Love. I know she has this set, so she'll appreciate another idea for using it...although she is so talented she doesn't need more ideas. I ended up using my Cricut for the numbers because I couldn't find a single set of smaller numbers that I could stamp! I have large numbers from Headline and Letterpress, but my Whimsical set is missing and I know I have a couple retired number sets. Grrrr....I'm sure that my Whimsical ones probably got mixed in with my retired sets and since I reorganized the retired sets, I'm having trouble putting my hands on things quickly. Need to get a better system for them, and a cheat sheet on what shelf they are stored. (Maybe this is an indication that I have too many sets?????? nah......). lol!
