Happy 13th Anniversary to ME!!! (And other big news...)

Good morning! is an exciting day! First, and most important to me is that I am celebrating 13 years of marriage today!!! It is so unbelievable to me how fast the years fly - and even though life has had its ups and downs - I truly and blessed to say that I love my husband more today than I did when we were first married! In fact, more than I imagined was even possible! The Lord has surely blessed me! other big news (that I am still a bit shocked by!) - this girl here is the Moxie Fabber of the week over at Moxie Fab World!!! I was completely floored a few weeks ago when I got the invitation from Cath...and it still feels a bit unreal! Can't believe the honored company I am joining the ranks of - I am always so inspired by this post each week and amazed by the talent I see! Thanks Cath so much!

So...with all that big news out of the way - here is the anniversary card I made for my hubby:
The globe is a print and cut file from the Silhouette online store - cut with my Silhouette cameo, of course! The heart was also cut from a separate file from the Silhouette store.
I used a Paper Smooches die to cut out the word love, and some Glitz Designs tiny letters for the words "I" and "You." The background green paper is some PTI cardstock that I ran through my Cuttlebug, and the red paper for the heart and background are from Echo Park.
I used foam adhesive to attach the heart to the globe, then more foam adhesive to attach the globe to the cardbase. The die cut "love" was glued directly to the heart.
 I finished off by wrapping some jute twine around and tying in a loose bow, then attached the entire panel to my cardbase with foam adhesive.
We are enjoying a week visiting family 1,000 miles away from our new home - so we are going to celebrate by leaving the girls with my parents and going out to breakfast and do some shopping! Looking forward to some special time with my hubby!

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit my little corner of the blog world! Hope your week is off to a fabulous start too!
