My photo

None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world.

Happy Together

Isn't it great to find that special someone you can annoy for the the rest of your life? Bugaboo Stamps

Good morning!
Today is the start of a new Color Challenge at The Outlawz Challenges!

Our sponsor this month is Bugaboo Stamps with a prize of 5 single digi images from their store! How fun is that? Especially since they have so many really cute images to pick from.

For this weeks challenge, Ursula picked an Inspirational photo for us to use.

To be honest, these are alway the hardest for me (even when I pick them) as there are generally so many different directions on can go.

I decided to make an anniversary card using the colors and the fabric patterns as my inspiration

The image I used is "Couple Annoy" and comes with a really funny sentiment which I did not use on this card but is the quote for this post! :O)

The image was cut out using my scan-n-cut 2 and is colored with alcohol makers and attached to the card with foam.

Blessed ...

Let every man and woman count himself immortal.  Let him catch the revelation of Jesus in his resurrection. Let him say not merely, "Christ is risen," but "I shall rise."
~Phillips Brooks

Fathers Big & Small ...

The guys who fear becoming fathers don't understand that fathering is not something perfect men do, but something that perfects the man. The end product of child raising is not the child but the parent. ~Frank Pittman, Man Enough
