♥ Happy Anniversary! ♥ {And more EXCITING News!}

Today, is mine and my hubby's 8th Wedding Anniversary. Boy does time fly! I don't think most people know that my hubby and I eloped when we got married! (We then later got married in church as a surprise for my Mom, 3 years later when my son got Baptized.) Anywho, here is a card I made for him. I made it simple and sweet! My hubby isn't foo-fooey! I used a vintage Wedding Certificate from one of my fave bloggers, The Graphics Fairy. Have you ever been on this fabulous blog? Everyday there are new and FREE vintage images for you to download! Awesome! I also used some Prima paper, a chipboard heart, ribbon, Melissa Frances rub-on, twine, a crystal chandelier drop and 8 pearls for each year we were married. I hope he likes it!

Now onto my exciting news... I just received an email a couple of hours ago telling me that I was selected to be on the Simon Says Stamp Design Team! I was and still am in shock! I love the Simon Says Stamp Store! All those fabby goodies! Thank you Heidi, Stephanie, Lorraine and the awesome DT for having me be a part of your special team!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs...
