Anniversary Card: Red, White, and Blue

Hello my bloggy friends!  2014 has continued to be a challenge.....our little town of Burney has made national news once again, this time for fires (winter-before-last it was snow).  We have three fires burning and several towns within the Burney Basin Area were evacuated.  Burney was on standby, but fortunately for the tremendous efforts of the outstanding fire personnel, equipment, and a bit of help from mother nature we were spared that event.  Two are almost contained, and the scariest one, the Eiler Fire is at 45% containment as I write this.  Weather is supposed to heat up and dry out and although everyone is breathing a sigh of relief, it isn't over yet. I think all will be fine, but please keep us in your prayers.  Anything could happen this time of the year given our historic drought here in California.

This is the monster that was threatening our little town.  The Eiler Fire.

This card is one I have been wanting to post for several weeks now but life, as usual, got in the way.  I haven't done a tremendous amount of paper crafting this summer, but have lots of projects in mind! 

This card and box were crafted for a special couple celebrating their 45th wedding anniversary.

Supplies:  DCWV paper from the Tradewinds stack, Spellbinders die, rose cut files from Penny Duncan which were cut with the Cameo and then hand rolled and shaped, Silhouette box cut file.

 I just noticed a cute black nose in the upper left corner of the last photo.  That's Burger.  Tired of waiting for a romp outside and just wanting all the paper business to be over.  :)
Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy your weekend.  Hugs, Shawna


  1. Shawna, those flowers are stunning on this beautiful card! WOW!!! Simply gorgeous!
    Love little Burger's nose peeking into that last picture! LOL!
    How awful to have those fires so near to you. Please stay safe and you'll be in my thoughts and prayers!

  2. I can't even imagine how scary it must be to see sights like that where you live. I pray you're safe and all gets calm.

    Your card and box truly are lovely, Shawna. What a sweet gift :). I did notice the little black nose, hehe. My dog is usually right underneath me when I craft.
