We will be celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary this weekend.
I did a little research and found out that the suggested gift for the 22nd is copper. My first thought, was how unromantic can you get!
I decided that I would incorporate that into the card I made him I cut out the hearts using my scalloped heart spellbinders dies and then embossed them with copper embossing powder. I used several layers to give them a beautiful coppery look. I found the sentiment at Squigglefly. I tell all my friends that the best part of being married to my husband is falling in love over and over again!
For his gift, I found 3 pennies that I am going to clean and then drill holes in them so he can carry them on his key chain. I lucked out and found pennies in my coin jar from the year we were married and the years our boys were born. Perfect!
Several foods also contain copper. We are going away for the weekend to visit the winery that makes are favorite wine so I am packing a picnic basket with a few of these foods.
The top 10 foods containing copper are:
Calamari and Lobster
Roasted Pumpkin and squash seeds
Yum! Sounds like this copper anniversary is going to be romantic afterall!
