Today is the Correct Day

Today is my 13th Wedding Anniversary. Some days it seems like such a short time, and other days it seems like forever. (KWIM). Since it is Monday, I doubt that we end up doing anything special. I do believe the boys are making us dinner. The boys are 11 and 8 -- so it will be interesting to see what we have. My bet is on Spaghetti. I did wake up to a dozen roses, and a GREAT BIG kiss -- no complaints here!!


Here is the card that I made for hubby. I used the Winds of Grace stamp set. I think this will be my new "guy" set, since Balmy Breezes has been retired. I stamped the image with Timber Brown Staz On, and then water colored it in. The boat is a combo of creamy caramel, more mustard, and close to cocoa. The sail is a combo of sahara sand and blush blossom. I used the layout from the SC140 sketch challenge again. The sentiment is from PaperTrey Inks. They have the best sentiments -- the majority of their sentiments fit in all the "frames" (hodgepodge hardware, word window and oval punches). Not sure if you can tell my the picture, but the NQN layer is stamped with leaves.

Thanks for stopping by -- BIG SMILES

Stamps: Winds of Grace, Country Blessings (retired) Faux Ribbon (papertrey) Inks: Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Blush Blossom, Soft Sky, Timber Brown Staz on Paper: Confetti Cream, Not Quite Navy, Chocolate Chip Extras: paint brush, Twill tape, Hemp, Hodgepodge hardware, distressing tool

Such a fantastic card! Happy Anniversary! I will be married 15 years in May...and I agree sometimes it feels like just yesterday that we got married, and somedays...usually when I am pissed at him...it feels like forever! Fortunately, I don't get pissed often! Hope your day was special!
