Happy 30th Anniversary!


Hi There,

Last week, I celebrated my 30th Anniversary with my loving husband. For our wedding our theme was bears, so I when I saw this image from Critter Celebration (Penny Black Stamps), I fell in love with it. My husband loved his card too when I gave it to him!

I am so blessed and so lucky to have met such a kind and loving man to spend my life with. Together, we have accomplished so much together and our love continues to grow each and every day. He became my best friend when I met and he continues to be my best friend. I hope to have many, many more years ahead with him to explore the world and share our hopes and dreams with each other.

26th Anniversary


Hi There,

Today I’m sharing a card that I made for my wonderful husband for our 27th Wedding Anniversary. I took multiple images to make him up a funny card. Which he absolutely loved and hopefully you all will too!!! It was a lot of fun to make and I used a combination of Kenny K Stamps that were monthly freebies I had received and also Simply Betty Stamps which I recently purchased.

To make the card, I used Microsoft Word and my HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 which allows me to do double sided printing. YAY! I printed out the verses on 2 full pages and then glued the 2 backing together. I coloured all of the images and then fussy cut around them.
