11th Anniversary

Today is my husband and my 11th wedding anniversary.  We won't be doing much celebrating today since he has a doctor appointment this afternoon and I have to work tonight so I will be sleeping during the day.  Then on Wednesday, it will be my birthday, which again I work that evening.  We will plan to celebrate with my children on the weekend when I am off.  My husband actually went out shopping the other day for cards when I was sleeping which surprised me.  Paulette made some wonderful customized images in her last club in which she personalized some anniversary images which was perfect.  I used this weeks colors for the JUGS scheme since brown is one of my husband's favorites.
My other card, I made for one of my aunts that just turned 50th.  I colored the image from A Day with Daisies with Copics and put Glossy Accent on the bottles.  For the "fifty" paper I made that by compiling different computer fonts.

Hope you had a happy anniversary, even if you could not celebrate. I have been married 41 years and sometimes my husband remembers sometimes not. I hope you have a fabulous birthday tomorrow! Each day of life is another to remember and be thankful for. Fabulous cards! Hugs
