I am recently back from a trip to Key West, Florida! We managed to do our yearly trip to a warm place at winter's end, and I am so glad we were able to go. We had great weather, great food, and met some lovely people. I love a good vacation!
Well, as I said, I am back, sharing some cards I made a few weeks ago, using a die cut and its inverse.
First, I made this--
The leaf die is from Sizzix, and the little flower is as well, I think.
The "thankful" is on foam tape, and I attached the leaves only in spots, to give some movement.
This is a happy card, I think.
The second one looks like this--
I die cut a blue word as well, and mounted it on foam tape. It's a tricky, tight squeeze getting it all to work, but I think it's okay. The hearts are on foam tape as well.
The inside--(I NEVER am able to take good photos of my card interiors for some reason...)--
So, there's the cards.
Now for some news!
I got MARRIED!
Yes, after almost 24 years together, Charlie and I managed to get hitched!
We took full advantage of Michigan law being changed (some 15 hours earlier) that allowed us to get married, and we were among the first 100 couples in the state to rush to our County Clerk Lisa Brown for our marriage license.
Well, we got it, and got married right then and there. We couldn't believe we were doing it; so quickly that we couldn't even call anyone to join us!
We then made lots of calls, saw some friends, went out to lunch, then went and bought some wedding rings. You do stuff out of order when you're running to get things while the getting is good!
Looks like that Key West trip was the honeymoon--also out of order!
We've spent the last few days getting used to calling each other "husband." Boy, I'll never get sick of THAT word, let me tell you. I am smiling as I write this, just thinking about it.
So, that's my story.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
