RAK from Dawn McVey




Hi Everyone! It's Sunday, which means the weekend is coming to an end, but I'll still take the day! Today, I wanted to share with you a little bit about my anniversary. So, Mac knows I like Dawn McVey. Well, he contacted her and asked her to make a card for him to give to me. Here we go with another surprise! So, last week or so, I checked the mail and see "Dawn McVey" package and get all excited, so of course I interfered with the surprise again, but I was only checking the mail! hee

Anyway, I just opened the card on Friday (we celebrated then, although anniversary was Wednesday). It is fabulous, right! I was so excited to see what she designed! Look at the glassine bag she put on top of the card. That is ingenious! I have those same little baggies and had no idea what to do with them. She even embossed them with a swiss dots embossing folder. Anyway, she has a blog post to tell you all about it here.

I just wanted to point out how Mac "scrapbooked" in the card! I told him now he's an official scrapbooker! He wanted a card that allowed him to write a lot of notes in it. So, the "Love" brown cardstock pulls out and he wrote his greeting on the back, then on the inside he added the pictures and more text. This was such a great idea!

This is my second card from Dawn, so I'll treasure it along with the other! So, this was a RAK card from Dawn even though Mac asked her to make one because she did it. So sweet!

We ate here and had a great dinner. For those who don't know, my favorite cuisine is THAI!

So, enjoy the remainder of your weekend! I'm heading out for afternoon lunch/siesta with a friend!!!

I saw Dawn's post couple of days ago and thought, "what a sweet husband" and then i saw the same card here.... I'm printing your post for the past couple of days starting with the Be Inspired, Perfect Proposal and this. So when I find my man, i'll have him read it...LOL!

Mac, you've been scoring points left and right, you truly are a sweet, sweet guy. A lot of husbands and boyfriends will be pissed at you..hahaha :)

You guys have a great weekend.
