19 years...

Today my DH & I celebrated 19 years of wedded bliss...ok, let's re-phrase that...19 years of marriage! :0} He's the BEST thing that ever happened to me & puts up with a lot of stuff...but, come to think of it, so do I!!! Marriage is hard work. Period. Did anyone say it would be EASY? I think not. Is it all worth it? ABSOLUTELY!!! So raise a glass...here's a toast to marriage, hanging in there through the rough patches, celebrating the good times, counting our blessings & lovin' each other!


Love you hon!




Our most recent photo together, taken @ the wedding dance this past weekend!


How about a super quick card share? The SPCC Color Combo was so fun last week, so I decided to join in again for this weeks challenge:



I will have to admit, this one was a little tougher for me...I love purple, but I just don't tend to scrap with it much...so here's the thank you card that I came up with. It will be perfect as an AnyHero card for Cards for Heroes!




I tried something a little different with this card...decided to fold over the corner and then place the sentiment on the inside, so that it peeks out of the card.







Supplies:


White card base - unknown
PP - Scenic Route-Grafton/James Street
PP - Creative Memories
Green cardstock - unknown
Border sticker - KI Memories Borderlines cardstock sticker - Pop Culture
Cuttlebug die cut machine
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing folder
Spellbinders Nestabilities Scallop circle
Stampin' Up - Thank You sentiment
Stampin' Up - Chocolate Chip ink
Zig Zag machine stitching


One more thing...I finally added "Followers" in the right hand side of my blog. I'd love for you to add yourself...that way I can see whose checking in on me :0} and I can come & stalk you too! LOL! Gotta love blogger buddies!!!


Thanks for stopping by! Take care!
