CASology: Week 128: Date

WARNING: sappy alert!!
 
 

Yep  - getting sappy with CASology's Date theme today!  I love my husband... now, I know you ALL love yours too... but how often do we tell people this? 

I found the man of my dreams when I wasn't looking.  He didn't sweep me off my feet, in fact, he [says] he doesn't dance [until no one is looking].  I already had my children when we met, and wasn't able to have more... he said "you gave me three kids, and I never had to change one diaper!"  He's 15 years younger than I, and still thinks I'm beautiful... even if there's LOTS more of me to love!  He's a terrific Grampy... and I don't miss his hair, at all.

On New Year's Eve we had our 24th first date, and in May, we'll celebrate our 20th anniversary... it truly will be a "paint the town" kind of date...

For CASology, and [another] for the Tom-file:

That die came home with me from Oshawa, Ontario!  The design paper is from the SSS January kit. The sentiment is one from PTI.
Inside:


"... yes, that moment when the stars aligned and I realized you were the one... I re-live it with every kiss."

Now, get on those roof-tops... I'm listening!!!

Wait for it--Awwwwwwwww! Michelle what a lovely tribute to your hubby. I can easily say two things to you here. Tom does adore you that was obvious when I met with you both and secondary of course he think you are still beautiful because you are!! A gorgeous card and I love that you are using that die today along with the patterned paper in that collection that is currently in hoard status! Thank you for sharing with us at CASology! Happy weekend.

So so sweet and so very romantic....I had to pull out a few tissues, just so sweet. And your card, AMAZING!!!!!!

Bożena Adamusińska said...

Amazing, wonderful, stunning! I do not know how you did the background, but the whole card is a mystery. World suspended in the stars. Kind of that is so, but did not we realize of this for everyday tasks. Thank you for showing what is hidden from our eyes.
Regards,
Bozena

Sniff, sniff - what a lovely story! You two are the perfect couple - I love how happy you are together! Love the background of this and the fact that some of your windows are 'lit' and some are not! So glad you joined us at CASology this week, Michele!

Joyce said...

OMG, I am crying from your story. Wow. Well, how can I say something banal about your card after that. A true love story, and such a fantastic card--love your skyline and that beautiful bokeh romantic starry background. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week, you lucky doll.

cm said...

Pass the tissues, please...your story has touched my heart ever so deeply and warmly! A true 'love story' if there ever was one! Wow. Your card is visually stunning, and the sentiment...romantic to the max! I don't know what else to say, except: you soooo deserve to have this amazing man in your life, and he, to have you. Yes, the stars aligned...
Hugs~c

Well, this magical card captures the magic of your love story perfectly! YES! To find true love is such a miracle and a magical gift, isn't it? Nothing sappy about this story -- it is quite beautiful if you ask me! And your card? I could stare at it for hours That background paper is so magical and mysterious and perfect behind the skyline die. So glad you joined us this week at CASology!

Shona Chambers said...

I'm copying Amy....awwwwwwwwwwwww, was a wonderful, soppy post. How fabulous that after 24 years your still so much in love and wanting to tell the world. Love your card too, isn't that die awesome and really like not all of the window holes are pushed out, gives it a lived in look. So happy for you two, nice to know there is still lots of love in the world somewhere!!

cm said...

Hello Michelle - I'm back, first to re-read your awesome love story (for the 15th time, I reckon! So joyful) and to THANK YOU for your earlier card featuring the paint chip. Based on your brilliance, I headed to the neighbourhood RONA store and brought home a stack of paint-chips, which I used on a card entered into MUSE! You're a genius, dear friend...a genius. And a gem!!
Hugs~c

Sharron said...

Beautiful story and equally wonderful card--both such great ways to share the news of your love! Hubby sounds like a keeper and you are very lucky. I'm sure he's just a lucky to have found you. Yeah for finding the perfect mate regardless of when you meet!

Jen W. said...

I love your beautiful words about your husband, Michele, and your card is a complete stunner! Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

OH Babs said...

My goodness what a lovely love story. You certainly have a winner, as do I. Twenty years, fifty years, in the end we all end up with no hair, or gray hair and sometimes no more slim waistline. And I certainly agree that you will find love when you are not looking for it. Congratulations!

WOW, what a stunning background to this scene. BEAUTIFUL!!!

Congrats on the HM at CASology, Michele.
