12 Years and counting!

Posted in General Chit Chat tagged , at 5:03 pm by bejewelledcreations

Hubby and I celebrated our twelfth wedding anniversary yesterday!!! WooHoo!!

We’re pretty casual about our anniversaries – just an “I love you!” and a bit of reminiscing over our happy day will usually suffice but darling hubby surprised me with a beautiful charm bracelet yesterday. He had already put three charms on it – an “L” and an “R” for our children’s names, and a love heart with a gem inside. He spoilt me – what a lucky girl I am!!!! *le Sigh*

I *DO* feel very lucky every day; he’s my Best Friend! And we have two beautiful children… we’re so blessed.

Anywho – just sharing our happy day. :o)

Oh My Gosh! I’m still here!

I can’t believe how long it’s been since my last update! *GASP* There has been plenty happening in my neck of the words but I haven’t stopped crafting.

Sometimes life just gets so busy and full that it seems a little overwhelming to set aside the time to update and post pictures – I do apologise, but please know that I am still creating cards and I guess my long break simply means I have LOTS to share with you. LOL.

Hmmm… where to start? I’ll start with a card that I had reason to make recently for my husband. He eventually saw the funny side. LOL.

The story behind this particular card is that he got a nasty bite from an Alsatian dog whilst attending someone’s property to give a quote. Not a nice experience AT ALL!  We can see the amusing side now – however he needed stitches and now has two nasty scars on his forearm. He’s a “dog person” and is not afraid of dogs and can usually win them around if they’re a bit funny… but this particualr dog was not fenced in, not chained, and gave no warning to the attack…

ANYWAY – I’m so glad my darling husband gave me the opportunity to make up my own punch art dog (thanks darlin’ – so considerate of you!) Tee Hee.
