Happy Anniversary

My daughter and son-in-law got married at a Halloween Party, although not on Halloween night.  She's always been a little crazy about Halloween and by extension, I guess we are also.  In fact, as I type this, my hubs is out putting up the horse drawn blow-up hearse in our front yard along with various things that light up and talk.  In past years it has taken us a month to decorate, but we're getting old --- and tired.  She's off doing bigger and better decorating; I'll show you the video when she sends it.  These days when a light is out - it stays out.  She would have obsessed over it.  This is the card I made for their anniversary inspired by these Simply Betty images.  The cat and the bat are by Prickley Pear, they have the dies and stamps to match.  I LOVE this cat.  I colored the images with my copics, of course but neglected to keep track - not that there were many colors.  I used a little Distress Ink Black Soot and Black Diamond Stickles around the edges of the image. 

And to my darling daughter, Charlotte, of whom I am very proud and her husband, Brad - I wish you many happy years together.

"Prepare yourself.  Take 15 minutes to rest so you'll be refreshed when he arrives.  Touch up your make-up, put a ribbon in your hair and be fresh-looking.  He has just been with a lot of work-weary people."
