A Special Day

Hello and Happy Anniversary to me....

Yes, I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 37 years. Seems like just yesterday sometimes that I walked down that aisle as a child bride. I guess it was meant to be!

How stinkin' cute is this image by Stampendous?!? Just perfect for the greeting.

Watercolored the background (how do you put a glow on the sun?????)
The mice are colored and fussy cut, then popped up with foam adhesive.

and because someone else I know is having a special day:

Happy 19th Birthday Zach

This is the young son of a good friend that has cancer. Along with being brave through his 5 rounds of chemo, he is very tech saavy and has a gift for music (I guess he was in the correct line when God was handing out abilities).

Such a fun card to make and apologies to the phone manufacturers as I am sure this is not precise or to scale...hehehe
