8 wonderful years
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I am sorry for my absence yesterday. I woke up with one of my wonderful migraines. It wasn't bad so I had hoped it would disappear quickly but that wasn't the case. I spent most of the day in bed. Thankfully my husband was able to help out when he got home from work.
Today is a special day for my husband and I. We said our vows 8 years ago today in front of friends, family and God. Thank you honey for being willing to spend the rest of your life with me.
This morning I made him a quick card using the same basic layout as the card I made for my parents. And yes, I did use ocean tides again. When I received the cardstock and showed it to my husband he really liked it so I figured I better use it for his card. The base is kraft stamped with the guide lines...lines diagonally.
Then I used smokey shadow (punched on the bottom with a fiskars border punch) for the bottom and topped it with ocean tides cardstock. The twin is actually rope I bought at my local store. The sentiment border was one my sister cut out for me with her silhouette ( I love that thing).
The sentiment is from PTI: Through the trees. I thought it was pretty fitting for an anniversary card.
Well, that is about it for today. I do hope to be able to play with my new goodies soon.
