For My Monkey of a Mate!

Good morning everyone! It is a gorgeous morning here. I can already tell that it is going to be a terrific morning too. I woke up early, went for a jog, ate breakfast with my hubby, I checked my email to discover I won some great blog candy, AND I am already posting a blog! :D I am tutoring this morning too so I even get to make a little bit of money! I am glad that my morning is going well because I had some horrible dreams last night! Have you ever had a night like that? Well, last night I dreamed that my husband was killed in an accident and I was devastated. It felt so real. I was sobbing hysterically in my dream. Thank the Lord I woke up too because I was about to go into depression! Haha. It actually took me a few minutes to figure out it was a dream after I woke up at 4:30 this morning. Once I did figure it out, I rolled over and held Nick's hand. It makes you really appreciate your husband and not take him for granted, that's for sure! Anyway, I made this card for him using Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try. I thought for sure that I was going to struggle with this sketch but once I got going it really came together quickly! Our first wedding anniversary is July 7 and I wanted to make him a fun card that would represent our relationship. Hehe. This one does just that! We both LOVE to have fun and I bet anyone who was observing us would think we were lunatics! It has been such a wonderful first year. I couldn't ask for a better husband. We are truly blessed to have each other. I thank God everyday for allowing me to marry my best friend! Alright, no more sappiness. I don't want to cry this morning! :D I will be back later with another stamped creations of some sort. Not sure what yet! Until then, have a great morning and as Roxy would say "Kiss the ones you love!" I know I will be doing that!
