Happy Anniversary Babe!

Mornin' hens!  Today is my 30th anniversary with my DH.  Wow!  I can't believe it's been 30 years.  I must say, he's the bestest hubby a girl could ask for.  We started dating when I was in the 10th grade. I was crazy in love with him then, and I still am today!  Happy Anniversary Babe!

So here's the little card I made for him.  On a personal note, he absolutely hates mushy, wordy cards, so you have to keep his cards short and to the point.  LOL!  I started by embossing a piece of SU Very Vanilla CS with this cute Cuttlebug embossing folder and I also used my new Tim Holtz Embossing Diffuser plates.  The diffuser plate actually prevents a section of the embossing folder from embossing the CS.  I used the circle diffuser on this card.  Then I stamped this image from My Favorite Things into the un-embossed circle area.  I colored the image with my Copics and then the FUN began!  I love, love, love using Liquid Appliqué.  I can hardly wait for the stuff to dry so I can heat set it.  I know, I'm a little kid when it comes to this stuff, but I just love to watch it puff up.  Then I stamped the sentiment onto some scrap CS and adhered it to the front with a few pop dots.  To finish, I wrapped the card with some twine, added a wooden button and tied a bow to complete this simple clean design. I LOVE it!  I hope he does too!

Oh, and I just had to share this card with you that Lil' Chick and Doug gave us for our anniversary. OMG!  I'm still ROFL over this one.  What a hoot (or should I say toot!).
It fits us to a tee!  Seriously, that's me!  Chubby legs, crazy hair, and of course ARTSY! And then there's the DH, well...... you get the point!  Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha!

Now let me tell you about my weekend.  Lil' Chick and Doug asked us to come over and they wanted to make us dinner for our anniversary.  Lil' Chick was SO excited about this.  So we show up and I couldn't believe what they had done for us.  Why on earth I didn't take more pictures is beyond me... but anyway, she had her dining table all decked out with her fine china, table cloth, cloth napkins to match and this GORGEOUS bouquet in the center.  She had tea light candles burning on the side.  I'm telling you it was just stunning.  She made a Caprese salad (my FAV!) for an appetizer and then we had sparkling cider to drink, out of champagne glasses.  LOVED it!  Then for the main course Doug grilled Filet Mignon, and we had a sweet potato, tossed salad and rolls!  SHUT UP!  Seriously, it WAS the BEST meal I ever ate!  That steak just melted in your mouth, it was that good! For dessert, she had a cake made with fresh strawberries inside and buttercream frosting.  She topped that with vanilla ice cream.  OMG!  I thought I had died and went to heaven!!  Everything was just perfect!  Then if that wasn't enough, she presented us with this HUGE wrapped box. It was a Kuerig coffee maker.  Accccckkk!!  I have been wanting one of those FOREVER! Ok, I think I really am in heaven!!  God has truly blessed the DH and I with the most wonderful daughter and son in law EVER!  
Thank you both, it was just AMAZING!
Have a great day!

    Fabulous card, so sweet. I just wanted to mention that I never bother to let Liquid Applique dry before I take my heat gun to it. And it puffs up just fine. :-)
