Hello "Tweet" Friend!!

Hi, and hope you all are having a wonderful Sunday!
Yesterday was my anniversary to my fairly wonderful husband of 28 years. It is odd even to see that in writing, as it doesn't seem possible it has been that long. I sometimes think the longer you stay married, the more interesting your bond becomes, as two people are always evolving. So ther person you are married to after 28 years may not seem like the person you married, but if we let God enter in, then what we are both becoming is more of what we were created to be...and my husband means even more to me now than when we were first wed. I don't think God could have chosen a better mate and lifelong partner for me!! We had a nice day and it felt good to have some time together to celebrate our marriage. We went to see the movie, Knight and Day, and out to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants here, Carrabba's. Our youngest daughter works there, so she was able to be our server and as always, it did my heart good to see her on our special day!!
Today my card is a CASE for SCS's featured stamper on Sundays, Debbie. (debbiemom23cs).
I used her basic layout for this card, and changed pretty much everything else. Congratulations Debbie!
And on my favorite blog, Stamping Sisters in Christ, Randi challenged us to use stripes on our cards. This paper is a scrap piece and was just the one I was looking for, and of course, all that is left of this design, but it had stripes, and it had the exact colors I wanted for this sweet mailbox image. The lil bluebird perched on the top of the mailbox is a brad, I just colored the wing with a copic marker to blend it in to the papers.
I may be back to comment on this verse, but for now, just wanted to get this card posted.
Have a blessed Sunday!!


  1. This is so cute, and that brad is a fabulous touch.
