48th Wedding Anniversary

Hello again!  My parents just celebrated their 48th Wedding Anniversary this week.  This time around, I have not been able to see them or celebrate it with them, even though they live just a short 30 minutes away.  Why?  Well, it is their anniversary and they went away on little trip and then stopped at my sister's in PA.  So I am glad that she got to see and celebrate it with them this time around.  I am so blessed to be able to spoil them when these events like anniversaries/birthdays come around...I think my sisters kind of get a bit jealous because I do get to spoil them on such occasions and don't have to share them with anyone else.  So it is nice to share them once in a while.  LOL   They are such awesome parents, and I love them so much!  I am so blessed!  What a great example they have been to me, in their marriage, in raising children...the list could go on, but you get the picture.  Anyways, when they do get home from their little trip, is when they will get this beautiful card I made for them plus a few gifts.  I think this card turned out beautiful, elegant yet simple.  I think they will like it!

I Used:
Professional Series Royal Metallics Cardstock
Spellbinders Shapeabilities Parisian Motifs Dies for the background cuts
Cricut Craft Room Basics and Craft Room for all the heart cuts
Adhesive Pearls
Paper Flowers from my stash
Satin Ribbon from my stash
Dimensional Tape and Dots
Thanks for taking a peek at what I have doing!
I hope you have a fantastic day!

Happy 17th Birthday

Wait, what??? My niece just turned 17...where does time go?  They just grow up way to fast.  She is very special to us, she is not only my niece but also one of my daughters best friends!  When she comes to our home, she brings so much joy and sunshine with her.  The sad but exciting part is that her boyfriend, of three years, has just recently left for the Air Force.  He just finished Basic Training and is now in "school" for training of the things he will be doing.  While we are so proud of him and miss him like crazy, he is now talking about marriage with my niece...which could happen in about two years.  Ahhhh, not yet!  I am getting so old, YOUNG...they are just getting old not me!  LOL
We are so proud of her, and we love her so much.  I hope and pray that she continues to keep growing closer to God and keeps her eyes on Him for the rest of her life.  I know she liked her card a lot!  It is one of those that you have to just touch, when you look at it!  I love this embossing folder.

I Used:
Core'dinations ColorCore Cardstock
DCWV The Linen Closet Stack
Darice Dandelions embossing folder

Well, thank you so very much for stopping by!
I hope you have a day filled with many blessings!
