25 Years....and Counting.

Yesterday was my 25th Wedding Anniversary. Yup, for the last 25 years I have been married to this most wonderful man. He is the light of my life and I could not image not being married to him. Twenty five years ago we looked like this
Now we look like this...or close to it lol....
O.K...there seems to be a few extra's added in between that's about what we look like now...minus the big goofy dog between it's a little goofy dog named Molly.
Anyways, to get back to my story, yesterday was my 25th Wedding Anniversary and to mark the occassion I, of course, made my dear husband a card. The image that I chose for this very important card is a new one that is out at Digistamps4Joy. Her name is Miss Mandy and she is the most adorable image. As soon as I saw her I knew that I wanted her for making a card for my hubby.

Isn't she just the sweetest thing? I just love the expression on her face...she such a little imp! The sentiment that I came up with for it is "After 25 years of marriage thoughts of you still give me butterfly's".  Now before you all tell me that I wrote the wrong tense for butterfly's...I already know. Figured it out that it should have been butterflies after I had already glued everything together lol. But my hubby didn't mind, so I left it as is.
I just had to show you a close up of her. I coloured her with Prisma Scholar Pencil crayons and oms. The Sentiments are my own that I did up on my computer. The butterflies and little heart pillow (that looks like our ringbearer pillow...minus all the embellishments on it) were things I've had in my stash. The rhinestone heart and swirls are by Recolletions. The brown base dp is by Coffee Flourish by BoBunny, the blue embossed paper (it's embossed with small dots) is by Bassil. The other dp is Sonnets by Creative Imaginations. And I used my Creative Memory corner punch for the corners. The layout I used is from a sketch challenge at Sunday Sketch & Stamp Blog.
