Lots of events!

This weekend we traveled to Chicago for our youngest daughter's very first skate competition. It was an exciting weekend for us! She took third place in her first event (Loops)- Congratulations Sweet Girl!!!A little info. here ;-).... she just learned how to do loops last week and only had three practices for them before the meet. To top it off, when it was her turn, she and her coach discovered that a different loop figure was required other than the two she learned a few days ago, so her coach explained to her how to do it and she went out there and did it!!! Then on Sunday it was not only Mother's Day, but our wedding anniversary and my birthday :-). So we had a lot of events to celebrate this weekend!

For our anniversary I wanted to make my husband a card, but like many men, he doesn't like the frilly stuff. He likes it on cards for other people, but not for him, so I try to make cards that are more masculine. I don't make many of them and I really need to. Feminine cards are so much more fun to make though ;-). I was also late in making my card since we were gone the entire weekend. I didn't have time to get one made before we left since I was getting us ready for travel and getting my daughter ready for the meet. So I made my card for him this morning ;-).



Honestly, he is truly is my very, very best friend and I am so blessed to be married to such a wonderful and supportive man. He supports me in everything I want to do and in all of life's moments. I'm happy that I get to spend so many of them with him :-).

I hope you are having a great day today. We have rain :-(. It's supposed to rain each day all week- ick. Looking forward to the sunshine! See you tomorrow!

Blessings!

Very nice card, am sure Mike will love it. That would make a great card for a female also just changing the colors.

I LOVE those banners!! What a great idea. I have a really hard time with masculine cards too. :)
