Happy Anniversary.

Well friends, Wednesday was my anniversary.............15 years.  I had no trouble making a card for this occasion especially armed with this Paper Smooches stamp set, Boob Tubes.  Oh my how my friend, Jen, and I have had a chuckle over that name!  I was fortunate enough to win this set and soo glad that I did!

But may I go back to how my hubby and I met?  At a bar.  Yes.  The theme at the bar:  Country.  Enter me.  College student that borrowed her friends Roper boots and jeans.  White jeans.  (If you know me, I'm not a country attire wearing kinda gal at all!)  Well, let's just say I returned those jeans and they had a *few* grass stains from my "stumbling" after the night at the "Rock" (the name of the bar).  Enough about that.  :)  Anyway, we dated for 4 years and in May 1996, we finally tied the knot!  I can't believe it's been 15 wonderful years! 

Well, if you know my husband, this card is right up his alley!  Totally him.  :)



CAS.....he loved it!  :) 
I was going to post a pic but alas.....don't have a scanner!  My pics are that old!  hehe  Maybe next year!!



Wee Memories challenge this week was to Stamp It!  So pretty much anything goes if it's stamped! 
Paper Sundaes challenge is to Pop It Up!  So I have 2 layers of dimension here on my little ole TV.
And then a great group of ladies who I do call my friends in blogland......The Papertrey Paper Dolls.  This week's challenge was issued by Sara from The Unhurried Life.  What great timing!  Her challenge was to make either a wedding card OR an anniversary card! 

I do hope you all have a wonderful loooooonnnnnnggggg Memorial Day weekend!!!

And love-of-my-life-man-that-I-married and I will have 19 years next month...
we've never given each other a lovey-dovey-mushy card to one another in all that time...
and I would be very suspicious if he ever did :)
