Happy Anniversary to my wonderful husband!!

Today, is our  ...  anniversary!  I'll let you figure it out! :)

I am writing this post early and scheduling it for the morning of our anniversary!   We are heading out to spend the day as a family so I won't have time to post it that (this) morning.  (Just the 2 of us will go out later in the week.)

I was so excited to make this card and I am thrilled with the way it turned out!!  I was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest.   Check out that one HERE.    I changed the wording because I wanted to number the days that we have been married.  I loved him even before we were married but I could not tell you the exact day that happened!   I remember the date of our first date, but I don't think I loved him at first sight!  In fact, I stood him up the first time he asked me to meet him! :o  

Sorry my ribbon got in the way!  It's 8,766.  And I'm not going to show you what I wrote inside!!!  The font is Lemon Chicken.  It is such a pretty font!!
Can you figure out the years??  Don't think I'm mathematically inept when you divide 8,766 by 365 and don't get a whole number!   Ever heard of leap year??

~computer generated sentiment
~Nestabilities Labels Four
~Recollections "Charming" DP
~Offray ribbon
~Allegro embossing folder
~Tea Dye and Walnut Stain distress inks

As I was putting it all together, the thought came to me that the Allegro folder was appropriate because "we make beautiful music together"!!   We actually do... we have a very harmonious relationship, but we also sing together in church a lot! (Don't mean to sound full of myself by calling it beautiful!!)   But music is what brought us together!  We met in a choir at college.  He was actually dating another girl in the choir, but ditched her once he met me!!  ;)

Thanks for stopping by!!!   Appreciate your hubby today even if it's not your anniversary!!

It's those funny details that are the story of real love - that you stood him up the first time, for example. The kids love those tidbits ;) Love the masculine touches, that gorgeous ribbon, and the sweet personalization of the days. I would have forgotten to add in the leap days for sure! lol
Happy Anniversary :)

Happy Anniversary! This card is spectacular--great design, gorgeous colors! I love that, by adding the number of days, it becomes totally personal. I need to find that Lemon Chicken font--it's beautiful.

Happy Anniversary, Debbie! Sorry I'm late.
8,766 days?! Who would have don't look old enough! LOL. I guess a happy marriage is the fountain of youth! Wish you both another blissful 24 years (and more) together.
