Happy Anniversary to us...


Good morning everyone...ok lets hear you all together now...Happy Anniversary to us...wow 37 years together that is an amazing achievement isn't it...I have known Phil since I was 15 years old and he used to come to meet me from school, cute eh lol...we then split up and met again when I was 19 and married a year later...I can hear all your minds adding up the years to find out my age lol...I got the largest bunch of pink and red roses with freesias (my favourite flowers) last night...in fact it was so big I had to use two vases...so beautiful and adds a wonderful bit of colour on these grey days too...what have I bought Phil I hear you ask...er...nothing...well not yet anyway I haven't a clue what to get him so will just take him shopping instead...men are so so heard to buy for don't you think...oh a bit of useless information for you today I found out yesterday this March has been the coldest on record for 50 years...I totally agree lol...right now for my card for today these papers are such amazing colours I couldn't resist using them together for this stunning Saturated canary stamp...I have only ever used their digis before but was super impressed with this stamp, its crisp and clear but probably would have stamped darker if I had reinked my stamp pad as its drying out...this is the fab Walkie coloured with my distress inks...I used the stunningly coloured papers from the Prima 6x6" Paper Pad - Doodle Deux, I love these colours together don't you...I finished my card with a black satin bow, a stunning charm which I added some of the black patterned paper too and a butterfly charm...the papers and stamp are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...the fab sketch is from Mojo Monday and I'm also entering it for the Simon Says Stamp challenge and The Paper Shelter challenge too...right I'm off to get my war paint on to head out shopping and for lunch...whatever your up to today I hope you have a lovely one and manage to spend some time with someone you love

Happy Anniversary Mina and Phil. Jimmy and I have been together since we were 16 - 47 years this July. Does this little girl remind you of yourself talking to Phil when you were young? She sure is pretty.

Happy Anniversary to you both, I hope you have a lovely day.
sounds like us, I was nearly 15, Den used to come to school to see me and one dinnertime the Science teacher saw us. She kept me behind after class and suggested I tell my mum I had a boyfriend....lol I married at 19 too :) in 1964...more sums to do...lol
Huge Hugs for your special day, Hope its Wonderful xxxxxxxx

Happy anniversary to you two! :D I fully agree with you - it's very hard to get a present for a guy, so I think it's a good idea that you will just take him shopping.
Your card is very nice too. I like the cute SC image and that metal butterfly. Hugs! xx
