Seize the Sketch #1 and 23 years

IMG_2172

Seize the Sketch is a new challenge blog which is the offspring of Seize the Birthday!
Many of my Scrapping friends are on the DT for Seize the Sketch so I had to play along.

Exactly 23 years ago today, I married my best friend and high school sweetheart!
He made me laugh then and he makes me laugh now even though there are currently 800 miles between us as he is working in Wisconsin.  I made a card for him HERE a few weeks ago but I made another card using the sketch.  He is coming home in a couple week's to take our son to University so I have lots of time to decide which card I will give him, maybe both! When I selected this picture my daughter gave me an "Awww, you were both so young!". I had noticed that too.  LOL

Happy Anniversary Tracey...you look so young and happy in the wedding picture...you should take a similar picture when your husband gets home and frame them together. He will love whatever card you choose for him...your cards are always great.

Happy Anniversary Tracey and I'm sorry you are parted for it. Love your card though - kraft and red look great together, and that sentiment is so sweet.

What a fabulous picture. You both were so young. James looks a bit like Leonardo DiCaprio in this pic--is that why you married him? Happy Anniversary to you both, and many many more. I hope you get a fab card from your husband kit! You must post to show us what you got.

What a sweet photo of you and your hubby. I am sure he will love any card you have for him. Your card is fabulous as your wedding photo. I have to agree with Darnell, you two look like Romeo and Juliet but with a much better ending. A true love story!

Happy Anniversary! (a couple days late :) ) I LOVE your card and your wedding photo. I think you should give him both cards...put one in his suitcase if he's heading back to Wisconsin after you take your son to university.
