Hoo Loves You?

Yesterday was my ninth anniversary! We stayed in and had a nice dinner at home. So not like our days before kids, but still very nice. We pretty much don't use babysitters unless it's family, so we don't go out much, but that's plenty OK with me. I love being home with the kids. My sweet hubby got me a pair of pink UGG slippers, so cute and comfy!

This is the card I made for my hubby. When I saw this digi from Designed2Delight digital stamps, I knew it would make a perfect anniversary card. The one with the bow is me, LOL! Designed2Delight has a progressive challenge each month. The first digi is free and if you use it and post it that week, you get the next digi free, and so on. This is such a fun idea. I just was introduced to them by my blogging buddy Shelly, who played along last month. They have lots of really cool digis available, so check them out.

For my sketch I used this week's Midnight Madness sketch (MMSC39). How much fun is this sketch? I loved the heart shape and thought it would be perfect for an anniversary card.

Thanks for dropping in today. I haven't posted much this week, my 16 month old decided he doesn't need a nap anymore! So, I really haven't gotten much stamping or cleaning done, LOL! Hope you have a great day!

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Designed2Delight digital stamps, Owl Always Love You, Amuse sentiment
Ink: Printer and palette noir
Paper: Close to Cocoa, gp110, Old Olive, Basic Gray Origins
Embellishments: Nesties, copics, crystal effects, Su punches, Bellas Baubles, primas, MS leaf punch, EK success border punch, SU ribbon, dimensionals

Oh Kathy, What a fun card to give your hubby. Faiths images are really fun..did you notice she is our sponsor this week? So how fun is that? Did you plan that? lol Love your card. Anyway, I can totally relate to the not wanting to nap with your little one..I have two 3 year olds and it is hard to get them to nap...it is the only time I can get anything done LOL Thank you so much for playing the Midnight Madness sketch challenge this week. Keep entering because we have some wonderful sponsors coming up, PLUS, we are going to have another one of our HUGE give-a-ways in a few weeks, so keep making those cards with us for all the action ;)

Happy Anniversary! This is a wonderful card you made for your hubby; the colors are so appropriate for a man....

We don't use babysitters either; my kids are 9 and 11 and they have never had one come to the house! I think people think that's odd, but we are perfectly content!
