To infinity and beyond!

Tomorrow (March 27) my husband and I celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary- holy cow has it been 8 years already?! I had this idea for a card design for him- a heart with a #8 wrapped in there somehow but I couldn't make it look right without turning the 8 on it's side. While talking to my way cool sister this morning she reminded me that the infinity symbol is a #8 on it's side! How cool is that?? We've made it past the "7 year itch" and are now on to infinity!! Ha ha, very cool indeed. Here is the card I came up with, and my preliminary sketches- I love to see how other people work so I thought I'd post that as well. I painted it with Twinkling H2Os and it's all sparkly and cool. Oh, and he doesn't read this blog so he won't see it early. Ugh, I just spent 10 minutes agonizing over the shade of blue of the envelope to match the card until I remembered he's colorblind and it DOESN'T MATTER. Sheesh.
