Happy Anniversary, Johnny and Linda

My brother, Johnny and his wife, Linda, got married a week after Ben and I did.  She was 15 and he was 19.  Most people wouldn't have thought our marriages would last but they did.  Of course, I lost my Ben one month after we celebrated our 50th anniversary.  Johnny and Linda will celebrate their 56th on February 13.  I made them this card and will put it in the mail today.

I designed the card in Cricut Design Space so the Explore would right my sentiments.  The front is embossed using an AG Cuttlebug Embossing Folder.  I finalized it with ribbon and pearls.

This is what I wrote inside.

When you stood before the judge fifty-six years ago,
You thought you knew what love was.
But I've watched your love grow over the years
into something beautiful.
Now your hearts are knit as one, you think
the same thoughts and dream the same dreams
for your family.
God has blessed you with a strong love for each
other with Him at the center.
He has honored your life with a long
I hope you have many more years together.


I'm so happy that you visited with me today.  God Bless You!!!!

Besties Valentine Card

I know I said I wasn't making another valentine but I got notifications today about 2 Besties Valentine challenges.  This card fits both of them

I've had this little Besties digi for a while.  I believe it was a freebie at one time.  Anyway, I decided to color her with my promarkers.  I wish my photos showed the true colors.  She is more colorful than this photo shows.  The heart behind her and the sentiment are two images I foiled with the Minc machine.  The foil really adds luster to an image.  The card base is embossed with an older Cuttlebug folder.  Love those tiny hearts.  I added stickles to the heart in her arms.

Thank you for stopping by today.  The links to the Besties challenges will be listed below.  God Bless You!!!  Peggy

Christmas Card - Week #4

This is the 4th week for making cards on the FaceBook Group, Only Christmas Cards/Projects.   I figured I would post my card early this week.

I have gotten so I love clean and simple cards more and more.  This one to me is simple but elegant.  I used one of Anna Griffin Mix n Match embossing folders for this.  I cut out the center and embossed it with one of the sentiments.  Then I popped it with foam adhesives, tied a bow and added it to the front.  

Thank you for dropping by today.  Do you think I will be in the Christmas spirit by the time Christmas gets here by making a card a week?  Hmmm.  Don't know.  God Bless You!!!  Peggy
