Anniversary...

Today, my husband and I have been married for 5 whole years! I know that doesn't seem like a long time, but to someone who started to belive that there wasn't that one out there for her, that's a wonderfully long time! God has truely blessed me and my son with this incredible man and I'm so thankful for him. I wanted to share the card I made for him with you. I used Lala with a heart from Lala Land Crafts. I colored her to look as much like me as I could! My dp is from My Minds Eye, sentiments were picked up along with the rhinestone flourish & pearls (in her hair) from Michaels. I also used stickles on her ruffles and in the scallops of the oval I cut out with my nesties and then I used glossy accents on the heart and her shoes.
I hope you enjoyed my card today. It qualifies for the Lala Land Crafts challenge, as well as the KLSNS Challenge and the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge. And, seriously, I didn't plan that! lol
Husband, if you're reading this...I love you very much and I'm proud to be your wife of 5 years! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!
PS I hope you found your card in your sock drawer BEFORE you found this on my blog!
Have a great day, everyone!
Blessings!

I think it looks like you, cute and spunky and sweet and happy and . . . just like you! I am sure your DH is the lucky one too, but I so know what you mean, I was a single mom for seven years with three small kids and convinced Id never meet anyone! Isn't God wonderful!
