All you need is love

Hello All,

It's time for another challenge at The Squirrel & The Fox and this time our theme is an easy one:

LOVE

Either show us something you love to use, or make something for someone you love. For my DT work this fortnight I created a card for my hubby for our wedding anniversary.


My husband AJ and I have been together for 20 years this year, we met a lifetime ago when we were just 18. It took us twelve years to get married, so this was our 8th wedding anniversary.

Now I have to confess that I forget our wedding anniversary every year. I remind myself at the end of February that it's coming, and then remember again a few days after it's past. This year I figured there's no way I'd forget it, after all, I'd made him this card.

Our wedding anniversary is the 6th. On the 7th, I proudly said to AJ "Happy Wedding Anniversary!" for him to reply "Oh yeah, Happy Anniversary. Wait, wasn't it yesterday?" *Sigh* I tried.

This card was made using the gorgeous Monkey image from Bugaboo stamps, coloured of course with copics.  Bugaboo are once again sponsoring The Squirrel and The Fox and offering our winner 7 free digis.


So what are you waiting for? *grin*

Also entered into the following challenges:

CMC Copic Challenge - Fuzzy, Wuzzy, Furry Animal Antics
Digi Doodle Shop Challenge - Animals
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards - Feathers and Fur
Crafting When We Can - Animals

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

So does that mean I still have hope that my daughter and her boyfriend of four years will eventually tie the knot? LOL :-)
Your little monkey is adorable and late or not, I'm sure your hubby appreciated it. Hugs Tracey!
