Happy Ani-versary

March 25th, 2014 is my 14th wedding anniversary, and in my typical style I just had to make my hubby a gift.  I figure it's such a personal day, that making something from my heart means more than any gift I could get at a shop.

For my gift this year I wanted to make something Star Wars related.  My hubby and I love Star Wars and he especially loves watching the Clone Wars cartoon.  So I chose the sentiment "Ani - versary" as it's Ani in the picture!  If you're not an Starwars fan I'll explain - Anakin Skywalker is a very young Darth Vader, yep he started out as a Jedi and when his wife (Queen Amadala) died after giving birth to their twins (Leia & Luke) he turned to the dark side.  Anakin's mother used the nickname "Ani" as an affectionate term, and it fits perfectly with my sentiment!

I used Mojo Monday's sketch to create my card. I really liked the style and the little flags.

To go along with this special card, I created a buffet of chocolate goodies.  Using some little milk bottles, I decorated them with black rosettes and then placed a picture of the Death Star on top.  I then filled each bottle with treats: Malteasers = Thermal Detonators, Mini biscuits = Wookie Cookies, Cheese Shapes = Darth Cheddars, M&Ms = M-Pire M&Ms and (not pictured) I included a small bottle of "Han" Solo softdrink.
Oh and I nearly forgot!  I made some light sabers by wrapping 2 cadbury chocolate rolls with red and blue Bazzell and some foil.  It was so much fun to see his face when he arrived home from work.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
