Happy Anniversary

So here it is, 2 days AFTER our anniversary, and I finally made my husbands card. Did I mention he was a VERY patient man? I feel like a complete failure as a wife! We hosted my sons baseball party at our house on Saturday (our anniversary) so with all the prep and festivities, we didn't celebrate. Then on Sunday I had two of the four kids come down with the stomach flu - yuck! He gave me his card yesterday, I cried and told him I didn't make one for him yet, but it was coming. Better late than never, right? Shouldn't we celebrate our love for each other on days other than Valentine's and Anniversaries? This is how I'm justifying it.

Anyways, here are the specs:

Life Is Good

So here it is, my first post to my new blog. I have been wanting to start a blog for some time, now and I have finally found the time and the courage to do it. This is a card I made some time ago for the Close To My Heart summer catalog release party I had. I used the new set called Extreme Happiness (C1356) and the phrase "Life is good" from Treetops (C1368). The paper is also from CTMH called Moon Doggie - so fun! I can't wait to show you more of the fun stuff I have worked on in the last couple of months!
