Anniversary Wishes

Today my brother, Jeff and my SIL, Gina is celebrating their 15th anniversary (and yes, after 15 years they're still lovey dovey). They were highshcool sweetheart, dated for 7 years before they get married. I was in 7th grade then when they started dating, and I was immediately taken by Gina. She's the sweetest and she gave me a cute teddy bear for my birthday then when she just started dating Jeff. LOL, I have soft spot for soft and cuddly stuff animals. And for teenager to have her older brother's girlfriend paying attention to her, who doesn't like that? :) She definitely knows her way in handling me and my younger brother, Jerry.

They have such a strong bond and love for each other, that today as they celebrated their anniversary, I want them to know how much I admired them and want to thank them for being such a good example to me. I am grateful that my brother has such a dedicated wife who loves him so much (nothing means more to me as a sister than seeing my brother happy) and I am glad that in Gina I find an amazing, loving sister. Here's to you guys, wishing you many, many happiness for the years to come. Love you both to pieces. :)

Speaking about love, I made this cute card using one of my favorite subject, hedgehog. As you know, as a hedgehod owner, I loved it when I have the opportunity to use hedgehog for my cards. This card cover several challenge as listed:
CAS-tastic challenge 3 - cards with circle
Paper Play challenge - use the color the color brown and another color of my choice (pink)
Jacksonbelle Embellishment - simple card (CAS)
Cuttlebug challenge - kids theme



I alo made this card for CK Club card challenge, which is to use "trash" stuff. So that kraft color border, is garbage tie. :)  Below is picture of the inside of the card. I kind of like doing the whole inside out thing. It makes the card more polished and complete. I hope I can continue doing more card this way. I wish have enough time in the day where I can just create. LOL, I think we all wish for this???



This morning I'm off to check out my LSS. They're closing this Sunday after 10 years in the business and have huge sale going on. I love the sales, but feel sad to see them close. Another mom & pop store closing down. I already went there last night & bought one of their paper rack already, just need to pick it up and then get my paper all organized. I will take pic of it later, once everything all neat. Today, I'll be stocking up on papers and refills. Yikes, so much shopping. :) Hope you all have great weekend. Hugs, Vera.
