13 years ago today was a very special day. My life forever changed, in a good way. 13 years ago today, I married my husband, my best friend and companion. I won’t even begin to say that the last 13 years have been all wonderful, far from it. There have been many bumps along the way, but they have just brought us here, to where we are now. Happy, content, looking forward to another 13 plus years (hopefully many many plus).
We’ve both been working so many extra hours in the shop (I usually only work a few hours a month, but I’ve been putting in a lot of hours) because of how busy we’ve been (which is really a true blessing in this economy), that we both forgot what day it was! On Sunday he asked me if it was okay if he didn’t do anything for me. I think it was a request for permission, but of course my response was “sure, since I myself forgot our anniversary was this week!” So we are going to celebrate with a romantic trip to the dump (kids in tow) and dinner. But of course, still the dump, no less! LOL
I did manage to make a card though. And with hexagons being all the rage right now, I used my Creative Memories punch I’ve had in my stash forever. It’s rather ironic how many times I almost gave that silly thing away but just couldn’t bring myself to it. I never liked it, unit now! LOL…Now that they’re popular and I can see past the boring Creative Memories old school application of the punch.
I also managed to use up some of my leftover 6x6 paper pad from Pink Paislee Bay Berry Collection from two summers ago. It’s fun to give old paper a new twist with the current shape trends. The 6x6 scale of the paper is perfect for this smaller punhc and card ratio. And of course, my very favorite Papertrey Ink alphabet dies!!
Supplies: Pink Paislee (6x6 paper), Creative Memories hexagon punch, Papertrey Ink dies (alpha & heart)
