On Monday, my husband and I celebrate our "lucky 13" wedding anniversary. This is the card I made for him. You may be wondering what bears hanging laundry has to do with wedding anniversaries. I haven't quite worked out what I'm going to put on the inside, but I'm thinking along the lines of being together makes even our everyday routine more fun - or something like that. Even though I love my husband with all my heart, I didn't really want to do a mushy card this time. He enjoys the Gruffies and this is one of my favorite images. (Thank you Jenny;) I'm also submitting this card for House Mouse and Friends Challenge #53 - buttons.
If you follow my blog, you might think this image looks familiar. Here is where I confess that I made another card with this same image for a previous challenge. Unfortunately, I dropped an ink pad on the card and was not able to use it. As luck would have it though, the pad missed the actual image, so I removed it and made a different card with it. No sense throwing away a perfectly good image just because the rest of the card is ruined.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!
