Our 25th

My DH and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary a while back and I am just now posting the card!!   Through those  25 years we have had our ups and downs, things were not always the way they should be, or they way we planned, but it has been a journey well worth the travelling. We remain  the best of friends and our love is strong.  
I made the card to give to  my hubby and as he has been the handy man supreme (lucked in on that one) and I'm the one who putters in the garden I decorated his side of the card with the tools  and put the  flower on my side:)
I choose Bugaboo's Gus and Stella for the card and the verse which comes with the stamp set 'I love being married. It's great to find that one special person you can annoy for the rest of your life!' for the inside of the card. He had a good laugh with that one !

The two best thing ( after my hubby) that ever came out of  my marriage is # 1 - my son, and #2 the other family - his children/grandchildren. I have been truly blessed.

Card Details:
Stamp: Bugaboo digital 'Stella One Person to Annoy" stamp set.   The hammer and wrench are from??

Medium: Prismacolor markers
Punches: Marvy Uchida daisy flower punches - 1" for the bottom layer and 1/2" for the top; Martha Stewart punch for the branches.
