Celebrate Good Times!

celebrate

Good morning!  Today is a good day to celebrate!  The dh and I are celebrating 5 years of marriage and we are going to a wedding!  Guaranteed we are going to kiss when they clink the glasses, our wedding or not!  I may even start a few rounds!  LOL  I loved that part of our reception, though I know many couples find it tedious…not us…we loved it! ACK!  When I saw the colours for this week’s colourQ challenge, I thought of this Verve blossom stamp from the Great Friend set.

I’ll leave you with a wedding photo from the big day 5 years ago (07-07-07) AND the card that Tony is getting today :)  I actually made it last August during the Verve Anni-VERVE-sary Release.  See the original post here for a fun little story about the set I used! LOL  How’s that for being organized!

Happy Anniversary!!!! Mine is next week on the 12th, 9 years this time around. July seems like a popular month to get married, that's for sure. I hope you guys do something special to celebrate...you looked drop dead gorgeous on your wedding day! So I love the card you're going to give your hubby, especially the bling on the coffee rings :) And the card you made for ColourQ was awesome, too! I'm loving the flowers, big bow, and layering!

I'm singing the happy anniversary song to you and Tony. Can you hear me from Loveland? I adore the card your made him and all the white space is absolutely beautiful on your ColourQ card...you've been rocking white space this week which you know I love, love, love. And your layers line up perfectly.

Pat and I will have been married 20 years on August 15th. Our first day was putt putt golf and then we sat on my driveway and talked for hours. He got in trouble for staying out late :) We were 15 and 18...my mum thought we were only 2 years apart because that was what we were in school...but I'm young for my grade and he's old for his...but it all worked out :) 26 years later...20 years of marriage, 4 beautiful boys and I'm married to the love of my life!

Congrats on the anniversary!! My husband and I recently celebrated 10 years, amazing to think of all the adventures we've had. Did you see my set using this fabulous Verve set you gave me??? You're bound to love it too. Our first date was bowling... hard to think at 18 I picked the right guy.

Happy Anniversary for yesterday and what a knock out dress!
I absolutely love that card, the stampoing is great. I have been trying different stamping out and when you get a moment would love to know how you did this-did you just layer one on top of the other doing the lighter colour first?
Hope your day was fun with lots of kisses x
