~You Always Know~

My husband and I reached 20 years this summer...


It means he knows me better than I know myself!

He recently was my "listening ear" and I wanted to make him a special card~to let him know how much I appreciate his concern when it comes to my well-being.

He's got ONE BIG LISTENING EAR, that's all I gotta say!

He's probably nodding his head while reading this...very enthusiastically, I might add!!! ;)

I chose this precious image from Technique Tuesday's Fly.

See how the girl is following the boy...but still a part of the fun?

That's like my husband...taking a kite, so to speak...and leading the way.

He's the fun one in our marriage. ;)

I could be in the "Woe is me" state of mind, and he will throw in
something HILARIOUS...

~What a blessing to have him add joy and laughter to my life~!

I chose this sentiment from a different set, You Always Know.

Isn't it SWEET?

It conveyed exactly what I was feeling when I saw the image.

I incorporated the colors and dry embossing for

I added the smallest amount of pink with my Memento Marker (to keep it masculine)...I love doing the speckling thing.
