Yup...not only is it Bellarific Friday today, it is the 22nd wedding anniversary for me and the hubs! And if you have read my blog over the past few days you might have also noticed that our twins turned 20 yrs old....what does that mean. Well, it meant that I spent our 2nd anniversary in the hospital.
Mark made the 90 minute trip every day after work to come see us and the day before our anniversary he said he was really tired and he wasn't gonna come the next day. WELL.....I had a hormonal breakdown and started to BAWL like a baby and said...'but it's our anniversary'....and he quickly changed his mind and made the trip. Not only did he make the trip, the nurses laid out a white towel on my bedside table and Mark brought in East Side Mario's for dinner. How sweet is that?
Now for the card...since it IS my anniversary I most definitely wanted to make this into an anniversary card for hubby. AND, I most definitely wanted to use one of Stamping Bella's Lulu flowers from the latest release. (are you loving those as much as I am?) I altered the sketch just a bit to stretch out the focal image so I could use Hearty Plant for Lulu, but I don't think anybody is gonna punish me for that. But I did get the remainder of the basic sketch elements in there, including the flowers which are from the depths of my stash that I think I may have purchased at Walmart several years ago. I thought they worked well with the Victorian theme I was was going for! To finish it off I used lots of Stickles Star Dust glitter and accented the teeny tiny hearts with clear glaze pen.
Tonight we will be heading out for dinner, I'll blow the diet on a few glasses of wine and be sleeping by 10:00! I hope your Friday is just as enjoyable! But if you aren't sleepy tonight...be sure to head over to Bloggabella and gaze your eyes on all the sketch possibilities!
Our Challenge next week will be another Free Form Friday to celebrate a new release to be showcased at Scrapfest in Kitchener April 16-17. Did you know that Paulabella and I will be there meeting and greeting sistahs and working the make and take table on Saturday! If you are there be SURE to stop by and say hi because we lovey to meet new sitahs!!!!!!
