Happy Anniversary!

I got up early this morning to put the finishing touches on the anniversary card for my hubby. We're celebrating 18 years today!!!

When I came out into the living room, this is what I found:
Jonathan occasionally sleeps on the couch just because he can - LOL! I don't know if one of them was lonely in the middle of the night or what. When I came out, I noticed that the door to Colin's room was open, so I was expecting to see him sitting up reading...nope! There he was sleeping next to his brother on the couch - Heehee! Of course...I had to take a picture! What kind of self-respecting mom and scrapbooker would miss an opportunity like that?

This is the card that I was finishing up for my hubby:
I started it when I was working with Caroline a couple of weeks ago and it was all I could do not to show it to DH right away - I love seeing his reaction when I make something really cool! But...I managed to keep it a secret and all I had to do today was write the mushy stuff on the inside. When you open it up, three cherries line up and you get the "jackpot".

Please DON'T ask me for directions/instructions on how to make this because it is INSANELY complicated! If you want to learn how to make it, you'll have to take a class with Caroline!

Hope everyone has a stamping good day!
