First Anniversary - A Rose for my Hubby


Today is mine and my husband's first wedding anniversary, and this is the card that I made for him! He got an Apple Ipad as his 'anniversary gift', but I had to at least make him a card to give him today. 

I made this card using the Give a Hoot Cricut Cartridge, The DCWV Green Stack, Recollections Card Stock, Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Walnut Stain, and the Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations Dies- Baroque, and Tattered Florals.

Rigo and I have a pet hedgehog, named Hedgie, that he absolutely adores. When I saw this cute little guy on the Give a Hoot cartridge, I knew that I had to get that cartridge! I made the rose using the Tim Holtz Grunge Rose technique. I did a short tutorial on that technique that I will post later this week.



Rigo and I met in high school, and were meant in heaven to be friends forever. Though today is only our first wedding anniversary, we've spent many years together. A good friends of mine from high school will tell you that when Rigo and I first started dating, I told her that I was going to marry him one day. I did. In the past 8 years, we've watched, and helped, each other grow. Through tough times and good times, we've always been there for each other. Our love for each other is so special. He's my very best friend, number one supporter, and my rock. He keeps me grounded when I need to be held down, and gives me the boost I need when it's time to fly. I strive to be the best wife and friend that I can for him.

Happy Anniversary, Rigo!
