You Light Up My Life
I know, kinda corny for my hubby, right? But, I guess anniversaries were made to be a little corny...LOL! Greg and I will celebrate our 14th anniversary next Tuesday...and I have a surprise for him to light him up as well!
A few months ago, he was sulking around, which is very unusual...so I asked him what was wrong. After a long hesitation, he said, "I lost my wedding band." He was doing chores in the barn, he admitted, with his ring on his pinky...WHAT?! It was apparent that he already felt bad enough, so I didn't give him too hard of a time:)
Anyway, you guessed it...I got him a new wedding band. This one is a slight upgrade as well, so I think he will be excited! I don't know, maybe I'm excited enough for the both of us.
I combined three challenges for my hubby's card...the Color Throwdown #96 using So Saffron, Cool Caribbean (long-time retired), and Pumpkin Pie...the Card Patterns Sketch 67, and the Our Creative Corner: Summer Inspiration.
I only had a smidge of Cool Caribbean, so I added a little Tempting Turquoise to the mix. The designer paper was stamped with the Woodgrain background stamp to add a little more interest. The lamp was inked up twice...once in Tempting Turquoise and another time in So Saffron. The shade was hand-cut and adhered over the original image for some dimension.
I hope you are inspired to think of your hubby this week and some of the funny (or not so funny) things that they do:)
