Vintage Merry Christmas

Hello my friends!
Today is an exciting day for me ... it's my/our 20th Wedding Anniversary!  
Yep, Mark & I were married 20 years ago today!  I'm wish I had a fancy wedding photo to share but  we were married on a very cold, snowy day in Toledo, Ohio on the courthouse staircase!  No frills, no witnesses and NO PHOTOS!  Yep ... life was even busier then and Mark could only manage to get a couple of days away from work so it was a quick yet memorable day for the two of us!!
And, I can honestly say my life BEGAN when I met this man!  He is truly my soul mate and I don't know what I'd do or where I would be today without him!! 


Black Friday 1 Day SALE Valid Until 10 AM Sat!

Happy Black Friday!   Save 30% EXTRA off all our Sale priced items until 10 AM PST Saturday, Nov 29/14.  

It's the BEST SALE we've ever had and it includes ALL Digital items, our CD's, Clear Stamp Sets and Clearance Items - except our Sale Packs - which are already 70% Off!

okay ... onto today's card creation!

You all know how much I LOVE vintage and Crafty Secrets ... well wrap them together and you'll have today's creation!  I have printed paper & image from the Vintage Christmas CD for my card and with a little fussy cutting created a beautiful (& quick) one of a kind creation.

NO COLORING necessary today which really made things go quickly.  And, the only additions are the Merry Christmas die sentiment from Cheery Lynn Designs and a pretty holiday ribbon bow created using my Craft-Dee Bowz bow making tool.
