Happy Anniversary!

Yesterday, February 27th, was my anniversary! Fifteen years! Whoo-hoo!! I said the other night that it is a huge accomplishment and something to be proud of because putting up with my husband for 15 years is a BIG deal! Of course, if the truth be known, it is probably his putting up with me that is the biggest deal!!

So here is the card I made him! Click on the photos to enlarge them. A friend of mine came up with the idea to use the tools as letters, I just expanded on the idea and made it even more masculine! What do you think? My husband loved it! He is so supportive of my stamping and creating, but when I show him a finished project, he just beams! It makes me feel so good! He took this card and put it on the mantle, saying he was going to show it to his dad and brother! (This is a huge deal! He is one of those "I can't even act like I like something" sort of guys. He is Mr. Darcy true to form!)
