I used my NBUS Papertrey Ink "Phrase Play #5" happy die. You might wonder why I didn't glue down the letters, but IRL, they bow out from the circle in a lovely way. The blue mat is impressed with a PTI linen impression plate. The chipboard heart embellie is from my VD stash and the photo insert is a copy of our actual wedding album photo of the bouquet and rings. For fun, I placed a little "diamond" gem over the engagement ring in the photo.
On the inside, the NBUS sediment is from STAMPlorations (I think) and the corner image is from Inkadinkado.

Speaking of diamonds, have I told you the story of my engagement ring? I thought I had, but I'm not finding it in my old posts. I do know I've shown you this photo of 21 year-old Mister Kevin when I first met him:
Years went by as years do and the prodigal grew up and went out on his own, so the Mister resumed his beloved hobby of motorcycling in 2003.
When the Mister came around the corner with his armload of garden clippings, I held out my hand to show him. His eyes widened in horror and then confusion as I started giggling.
"What ... ?" he asked.
"Don't you get it?" I said. "When we got engaged, you sold your motorcycle to pay for my diamond! Last week you finally got another motorcycle and now I've lost my diamond! Apparently, we are only allowed to have one or the other!"
Well, that was 13 years ago. This year, along with a beautiful handmade card, the Mister got me a new diamond ring ~ which I promise I'll remove when I'm gardening! He did good and I think I'll keep him!
But that's not all!
I hope we have many more years together before Earthling communications with each other are reduced to abbreviations, hieroglyphics, tweets, and instagrunts!
Enjoy your day! No, seriously, enjoy! LITS!* Don't forget the Giveaways Page!
