Happily Ever After

My husband and I just celebrated 13 years of marriage. It seems that every year we are on vacation somewhere and it actually takes us until half-way through the day before we realize it's our anniversary. This year was no exception!! Regardless, we always find a way to celebrate whether that day or, more likely, when we get home. Unfortunately, I always seem to forget to make a card before we leave (in the crazy time of running around finishing work, packing, making arrangements for pets, etc.). Again, this year was no exception so I made this card for my sweetie last night.
The image is actually just a small part of a Happy Hoppers stamp called Bunny Kisses by Stampabilities. Where is the bunny you ask? Well, he is holding a sprig of mistletoe over these little mice who are smooching!! I loved the little kissing mice and knew they would make a great anniversary card. The senitment is from Favor It Weddings by Papertrey Ink (perfect I thought). The image is colored with Prismacolor pencil crayons and blended with odorless mineral oil. The heart is a small rub on. If you look at the close up picture, I dry embossed some cute little hearts along the outer edge, and the image and mat are popped up on dimensionals.
I know it is all sappy but I've got to say that I truely love this man so much more today than I ever did 13 years ago!!!
Thanks for dropping in to my blog!!

Happy Anniversary (a little late). Love how you used just part of the image. I always think of that stamp as only being able to be used once a year but after seeing your card I realize it could be used for all sorts of occasions.
