Hello! Today is a very special day. It is my wedding anniversary. We've been married 11 years.
Andrew and I met in high school. He was so quiet I didn't even know that he was in my class. Thankfully we were put in another class together...Home Economics. We had a lot of fun in that class. He wouldn't do any of the cooking but he did help with the cleaning up. We ended up being the best of friends. We walked together at graduation and we went on our class trip together.
I had a huge crush on him, but I never told him.
We would see each other from time to time and go to the movies or out to dinner. One time, after a really bad break up, Andrew came to my grandparents house to pick me up for a movie. My Grandpa would not let me go out with him unless Andrew came into the house and met him. My Grandpa loved him and agreed to let me go =) Then one day after about 8 years we were single at the same time. We started hanging out and quickly fell in love. My Grandma told me "don't let this one go Tina, he's a good kid." She was right. Andrew is an amazing man. He is kind, gentle, funny, fun and supportive. He has is the only person in the world that can make me smile and laugh when I am upset. He's the kind of guy that will give you the shirt off his back. He is an amazing father who has not only blessed me with two children, but made the two children I already had his, in every sense of the word...including legally.
When Andrew was a teenager, he worked at a paintball park. His nickname was Joker, which is very fitting to this day. Which leads me to the card that I made him for our anniversary. When I saw this image (Wanna Get Wild) from KarleighSue, I had to have it! I knew Andrew would love it.
I colored her with Spectrum Noir makers.
The green rhinestones are from Glitz N Glam Girly Boutique. I attached them with a new adhesive I wanted to try out from Fun Stampers. It's called Journey Glaze. I had been told that Journey Glaze works better than E6000. I had to give it a try. I am tired of the mess that my tube of E6000 makes when I use it. I am happy to report that I LOVE the Journey Glaze. It doesn't ooze all over the place and it adheres like a charm.
Before I go, I would just like to say...
Andrew, you are the love of my life. You make every day an adventure. You are a blessing.
Thank you for loving me.
Have a spectacular day everyone!
