16 Years


16 years ago today Rich and I got married. It is hard to believe that much time has gone by. We have had our ups and downs like all couples do. Our biggest problem is we are both first born children and like to get our way but one of us, usually him gives in. Some things that I love about him the most are:
He is always on time and very dependable.
He is a hard worker and good at what he does even if he doesn't always like it.
He supports my stamping obsession!
He is a good father.
He is there for me when I really need him.
Something I will always remember is how he never left my side when I got so sick after having Emilia. I am very grateful to have him as a husband.
In honor of our anniversary I made him this card.

Recently he has gotten into bird watching. We have feeders in our back yard now and we sit outside watching the birds. The last few days there have been a pair of doves sitting on the power lines and he likes to make up stories about them. I tried to represent that in the card. The green bird is him and the pink bird is me. This card also qualifies for the current Embellish magazine challenge.
I started by stamping the text on stampers select white cardstock with dark chocolate ink then I matted it on Ripe Avacado Cardstock and attached it to the Brown base. After that I cut a circle through all three layers. Inside I attached the birds from the PTI Birds Of A Feather set so when you open the card you will only see them there.

Once again a very simple card but that is what he likes.
That's it for now I will be back soon with more things to share. Until then I hope the rest of your week is a great one and thanks for stopping by!

Very sweet and thoughtful! Happy anniversary! I had to laugh when I read you were both first born, but it sounds as though you have found a good middle ground to compromise.

Sweet card! I love that you have a window on the front, and the script and two colored birds adds so much interest. I'm sure your hubby will love it!
