Blogger's Challenge #67 Falling for you PLUS A Color Challenge....


Can I make the title any longer? This is what happens when you combine two challenges into one. I combined my Blogger's Challenge this week with Kristina Werner's color challenge.

The Challenge that Lisa issued was "Falling for You" based on Love/Anniversary. Of course, I'm a sap for my dh, so I made my anniversary card a tad bit early. He'll probably see it early, too. I love him so much. I totally had given up on getting married, joking several times about starting the first Lutheran convent. Then, God placed a new pastor in my church and then in my heart. Actually, I think in the reverse order. I met him when he was visiting before he actually accepted the call to be the pastor and I started flirting that day. He comments on that day that either I was a lot of fun or totally crazy. I wonder if he's decided yet....

Color challenge #24 by Kristina Werner was pumpkin pie, kiwi kiss, chocolate chip and very vanilla. The technique I used is from Technique Junkies. LOVE those ideas, Pat!!!! I know I've shared before but I've been a subscriber for a LONG time and it's SO worth it!!!

Thanks for checking out ALL of the challenges. One more thing...come to my Stampin' Stampede (thanks Patti C!) next Tuesday!!! It's going to be a BLAST!

Great card, Lisa and an even better story! I always knew you had a wild streak!
Love how you used the rope for an accent - is that how you "roped" your man? heehee
