Happy Anniversary to the worlds most wonderful people!

Hello!  Happy middle of the week day to you!  Today I have a card to share with you that I made for a very special couple!  **DISCLAIMER!!!!! MOM,  if you are reading this turn away now!!  Close the page and come back and read it NEXT week!!  LOOK AWAY!!!  :)  If you are not my mom then please feel free to read on!

I happen to have the very BEST Mother in all of the whole world.  She is awesome...plain and simple!  I don't know how I got so lucky, but I did!  She is sincerely just the best.  I also lucked out and wound up with a fantastic Step Dad!  Totally top notch!  I couldn't have asked for a better guy.  He melts my mom's heart and is just wonderful!  They have a wedding anniversary coming up soon and so I wanted to make them a little card.  They also happen to live in Alaska...the coldest place on earth! LOL  They have lived there for years and love it.  TOOOOO cold for me though!  Anyhow, on to the card:

These are my snow parents!!  They are made entirely from Stampin Up! punches!!  How cute are these two?!!  This idea originally comes from Ellen Kemper.  She is the punch art queen!  Thank you for the inspiration, Ellen!!  This card hinges at the top rather than on the side.  

My snow parents up close!!  Notice the bling on mom's coat!

Side view to show off the punches.

Snow feet on snow banks!  Snow made from tearing and Dazzling Detailing the edges.

Look at those cute cold noses!!

Inside sentiment is stamped using Teeny Tiny Wishes.  That has become my go to set for all my little wishes!

Oh My! AnnMarie your snow parents are toooo cute! I love this! I don't have the large heart punch but do have all the others. Maybe I could cut out my own boots! :)
