A Letter To Tim :)

I want to give a huge shout out to my husband Tim! it's our anniversary today :) and he's at the fire station, so I want to write this letter to him letting him know how much I love him....so there will be no card today but I have one for tomorrow so please come back....

Tim... I want to tell you that I love you more then ever bucko. Everyday that I am with you my heart soars and I am so happy. You make it where I am the Queen every single day, not a day goes by where you don't tell me I'm beautiful.

I am forever grateful for all the sacrifices you make for our family, especially for me.

Not many husbands encourage their wives to buy whatever they want and critique their cards to make sure they are blog worthy lol! and you do this because you know how happy it makes me.

I have always been so proud of you honey. When I see you in the Captain's seat responding to a fire or a medical aid my heart wants to burst out of my chest because I am so proud. I am in awww of you for what you do. Not only do I have a loving supportive husband at home I also have a real live HERO at home. You make my life so complete that without you life isn't worth living. I have a husband, father, lover, caregiver and best friend all wrapped up in a handsome package..I am so lucky :)..We will be getting old and decrepit together and I'm sure we will always have an adventure but for sure your the man I want to do it with....It's about living our dreams together baby and I will always be by your side holding your hand, looking up at you and smiling........

I know I am not easy to live with (I know big understatement) :) but you still love me anyways (grin:)) WOW!

So I have always told you this but I will shout it out again... I NOT ONLY LOVE YOU!, I'M IN LOVE WITH YOU! TODAY,FOREVER AND ALWAYS.......

I love you Timothy! Happy Anniversary!

Always your loving wife....

Aurora On A Butterfly

Hi Everyone! well when it rains it pours..my dad got into a car accident last night and O boy! it's been a stressful night. He's OK but his truck is messed up...so that's another expense he didn't need but he has ins. so the other car will get fixed luckily...and it was a parked car so no medical problems he would have to deal with....and of course Tim tells me this morning that I have a metal rod stuck in my tire and I need to take it in...so after this post it's off to see what my good news is for the morning..I need to fix it because Sunday morning we are headed to Disneyland and unfortunately it's Valentine's day (which I can't stand) LOL! so when we made are plans I forgot :( and years ago we went to Disneyland on accident again on V day and it was packed..so we told the kids if it's to crowded we will go back next month...so ugh! ......
Anyways to the card this image is part of the Aurora collection..I also loved the sketch from Friday Skechers ...ALL of this card was made using stuff I got from CHA....The DP is from SEI (Jolie Chocolat) and I love this Paper pack so much..You have to buy some, all the butterflies are gorgeous!...so with all this stuff coming from CHA I don't know who made it..the ribbon, butterflies, and circle bling are so pretty! :)....I have to run but I hope you like it...Have a great Friday :)

A Rockin Sassy Good Time..

Hi Everyone!!! Today's image features another Sassy Studio Designs girl called Rockin Roxie... She was another freebie at last months party. Well I bought this paper and new exactly what image I wanted to use it with...Perfect match huh? LOL! Love it....I also wanted to play with Mercy's sketch this week... The DP is from my "stash" because I cut off the labels and now I don't know where there from (typical) hehe.....The ribbon was from CHA. The black brads are from CTMH and the paper clip is from Making Memories. On Roxie she needed some bling so I added stickles to her pants and I did use my new spray Shimmerz on just the image paper.......

Well the doctors found a mole on Cordell's back, so now there going to do a biopsy on it, so in a little bit we have to take him to the doctor so please keep good thoughts in your head for my son, I don't know how bad it's going to hurt so I'm so stressed out right now. The doctor though feels that the results should be benign...gosh I'm asking for that miracle to happen that's for sure...So again push good thoughts towards Cordell :)....
Thank You!!! Come Again!!

Hi Everyone!!! Yay, yellow team came back (BL) that was so cool...and American Idol was so funny. Both Tim and I laughed are butts off when Simon said I think you killed every cat in Denver..LOL! anyways to the card..I told you the other day that I bought some new stamps..well here is one from the pretty big collection..the set is called Aurora Collection and it's from Susana Custom Art And Card Design (SCAACD) for short..LOL! And what was pretty cool was I ordered late on Friday from them and it was in my mailbox on Saturday! the next day! and it came in a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of rubber, never had that happen, so that was awesome too :).....The DP is from Basic Grey (Sugar Rush) O and this card was made in honor of both of my friends Agustina and Diana. Agustina is the orange portion and Diana mentioned purple a few weeks ago, so there ya go she's the purple portion :)...All the flowers are from Prima and the buttons are from my 'bag of buttons'..and I was able to use my new flower nestie..Another cool thing hehe I bought the new spray Shimmerz and can I say WOW! I can't wait to buy more of these. I bought cotton candy and it does look like spun candy on the paper. I did use the new Shimmerz on today's card and tomorrow's. You can't really tell in the picture but if you buy some you will know what I mean. (enabler alert) LOL! I did leave the image with bent edges because it feels more like a blooming flower so don't think that it is coming apart LOL!..I hope you like it..Have a great day everyone..I'm going shopping with Mom..so far so good :)
Thank You!!! Come Again!!!
