Do You Feel Lucky?

Well this Friday The Man(hehehe I have to give Sandra credit for this one) and I celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. We have known each other since we were in the sixth grade and started dating our first year in Highschool while at band camp(One time at Band Camp...LOL I couldn't resist). So we have actually been together for 19 years. That is over half of our lives! How crazy is that? Even though I like to give The Man a hard time every once in a while...I couldn't ask for a more loving husband and best friend. To see him with our now 3 year old daughter makes me fall in love with him all over again. If you don't know or haven't guessed it I made the card up in The Ohio State University (Go Bucks!) colors. The Man and I both graduated from OSU and are die hard Buckeyes. So when I saw Sketch #13 (thus the title) from the Victoria Case Challenge blog, I thought that would be perfect with the Steal A Kiss stamp which is also from Victoria Case. I change the sketch up a little, instead of an oval I used a square. I think that made the card have a little bit more of a masculine feel. The sentiment is from Artful Inkables and I added some heart shaped raindrops to tie in the red with the rest of the card. I noticed after I took the picture I forgot to put on a tiny twinkle for the girl's earring. She does have one now so just imagine it is there. The designer papers are from Basic Grey and I colored the image up with copic markers. Sorry I have lately been sporadically listing what markers I use. I have organized my markers in my tote by color families and once I get done with a set of colors I immediately put them back into their spot, meaning I forgot to write down the colors. I'll try and get better at that. It is all about routine. I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
