It's A Love Thing

From the moment I laid eyes on him
I knew.

Amazing to think that it's been
ten wonderful years
married to this man who
impresses me, cares for me,
inspires me, makes me laugh,
rescues me, loves me
each and every day.

A man like that
deserves a special card --
not too frilly, but still romantic,
a card that lets him know
he still sets my heart to flutter
everytime I look at him.

For my anniversary card,
I decided to go with classic, elegant black
with muted tones of silvery gray
and white.

I selected this patterned paper by
Best Occasions, trimmed it down to size,
and stamped my sentiment from
Stampology. Punched out an additional
black butterfly with an EK Success punch,
and adhered it with a mini glue dot in the center.

I then wrapped around some
American Crafts ribbon and attatched it
with my stapler in a criss-cross pattern.
I mounted this on black Bazzill cardstock,
added a button to my ribbon
and stickles to my mini butterfly.
(Glitter may be girly, but I couldn't resist!)

So, to celebrate
our ten years of wedded bliss,
my husband and I went away for
the weekend -- back to Fairlawn,
in fact. We had such a nice time on
our day trip this summer,
we decided to go back.

Which meant that I got to go to
Archivers, Hobby Lobby, and Pat Catan's!
So fun. I picked up some things that
had been on my wishlist for a long while,
including Tim Holtz's Tiny Attacher
and refills, some baker's twine,
new stamps, my favorite Signo white gel pen,
Are you ready for it?
The Clip It Up!
Since I had two 30% off coupons,
my sweet hubby bought me the base unit
as my anniversary gift
and I bought myself the upper tier.
I put it together first thing when we got home
and I LOVE it!
I'll have to show pics another night.

We also had some GREAT food --
Five Guys burgers and fries (so yum)
and P.F. Changs -- bless the sweet Lord
for giving His creation the ability
to combine flavors like that!
Delicious just doesn't describe it.
If you ever get a chance to go to one -- do!

Well enough from me tonight.
Hope you all have a wonderful
day tomorrow!
