Muse Challenge #117

Muse Team Blog (Private)
I am delighted to be your Muse this week!  I have been a bit remiss with my visiting you all lately... many visitors kept me busy - but in a very happy way!  You will be well sick of me before you know it!

I am thrilled to share with you another monumental occasion... Tom and I are celebrating our 20th Wedding Anniversary this week!!  We can't imagine where the years have gone, but are grateful for each other daily, and feeling so blessed.  So, you know I had to make him a special card, right?

 
Starting with the May SSS kit made this pretty easy as the papers from MME are simply gorgeous.  I used one of the gold stickers included to cut my little PTI Life - Wet Paint II die, and stamps for my sentiment.

You'll understand if I keep my inside sentiments a secret?  But I cannot wait to see what masculine, special occasion card you'll make to share with us at Muse this week!!!  See you in the gallery!

Thanks for dropping by .... LOve visitors! =]

I LOVE your card and was inspired so much by it yesterday and went in a completely different direction than yours. I basically used your card as a sketch for my card. I can't wait to share later this week. :) Those papers are so perfect!

EEK, Michele, if you were married on the 13th, we were married on the same day!! We had a noon wedding 20 years ago. Now I think I'd better get into office and make a card very quickly.
