2 Peas in a Pod


 
*Warning* You might want to put on your sunglasses before viewing this card! LOL

I must be on an orange, green and black kick since my card uses the same colours as my last one ;) Today is my 9th Wedding Anniversary and I came up with this card for my wonderful husband to surprise him with. I used this week's Mojo161 sketch and inked up my Happy Peas stamp, 2 Peas in a Pod stamp and my Ha-pea Anniversary stamp (on the inside of the card) from my recent pile 'o goodies from Stamping Bella.

I tried to keep my card on the "fuss free" side because it was for Bill but I got a little carried away in the sponging department and now this card is rather fluorescent! lol There was no photo re-touching involved in this photo so that should give you some indication of how bright this card is ;)

I just wanted to wish my husband a very Happy Anniversary! He is the life line of the house, the best father I could have wanted for my children, my partner in crime, my best friend and most of all, after 9 years he still makes me smile and I'm thankful everyday because he chose to be in my life :D Mwah! Love you babe!!!

Thanks for coming by today to be blinded and have your ears almost bleed from all the sap in my post ;) I promise that my next post won't be so sentimental ;)
