Another anniversary!

My dad asked me to make a card for one of his dearest friends and his wife's wedding anniversary. Knowing the couple, and that they have a great sense of humor, the first thing that came to mind for them was a stamp I had just gotten from Impression Obsession. They are city folk...from the south side of Pittsburgh, who now live in a more rural community in western Pennsylvania. For people who used to pull up a few red bricks from the "yard" to plant a tomato bush, the outhouses will surely touch a funny bone for them. He was also a hunter in his younger years, so the rack on the His outhouse is a perfect touch.  The Judith TP and plunger that is stamped on the inside went along perfectly.
The card base is certainly celery with a layer of chocolate chip. The image is colored with Copic markers. I added some flower-shaped pewter brads and a couple of layers of a Martha Stewart border punch. I stamped the inside with a simple "Happy Anniversary" sentiment.


  1. Oh my goodness Lynnor, I LOVE that image. How fun to do an anniversary card with that image! So cheerful and humor. Love it!!

  2. This is fantastic! As a country girl myself I can definetly see the humour in this. There were a lot of places around here when I was a little girl that still used outhouses frequently! We even had the old party lines! lol Fantastic card Lynnor!

  3. After the comment you left on my card for M and Tahiti Petey/cat/dog/man...whatever, I noticed your blog. Had to visit and found this hilarious card. How funny is that rack on top of the outhouse not to mention that huge roll of toilet tissue. LOL BTW, your little granddaughter is a doll.

  4. This is the best anniversary card I've seen in a long time, Lynnor!! I absolutely love it!!

  5. This is too funny! My parents would love this one! Thanks for stopping in today...I am always tickled when you stop by!
