Love Is In The Air........

What a FABULOUS few days.  We have been walking on Cloud 9 for what seems like forever!  Saturday night we were lucky enough to celebrate the joy and love and the laughter as my nephew Michael, married the love of his life, Stephanie.   Happy Happy Joy Joy to the newest Mr. & Mrs!   A magical night spent with family and friends.  Just Glorious!  

As they are on their Honeymoon, I do not want to post any photos of them until I have permission, but I will tell you this, he is a very handsome groom and she is a very stunning bride!  (that will keep you coming back for more!)
Monday, Tom and I celebrated our 25th Anniversary......how did that happen?  It's amazing how time flies, weren't we just 25 ourselves?  Houses, children, pets, jobs, joys, ups and downs......25 years of wonderful memories, and perhaps 25 more in the making.
Here is a card I made for my dear Hubby, and yes, I do still think of him in that way.......most days!  lol

 I used the Always & Forever duo stamp set from Gina K Designs.  When I saw that set I knew it must be mine!  It's just one of those beautiful silhouettes.  I added a 'few' pearls and 'some' glitz with Stickles and Sakura glitter pens, and wrapped it all in lace.
And if all of that wasn't enough to keep us jumping from cloud to cloud..............wait for it...............
OUR DAUGHTER GOT ENGAGED on Friday Night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  We are over the moon excited about this wonderful celebration!  Overjoyed to know that our baby, Lori, has met the man of her dreams, Tim.  We love him like our own.  They are a PERFECT match and know that the next phase of their lives, of our lives, will be a happy one filled with joys and celebrations, plans and expectations, around every corner.   Cheers!  To Lori And Tim!

A Fall 2015 wedding is planned, as they are concentrating on buying a house!  Lots of good things in store!
And of course I had to whip a special card for these two loves of mine! 
Again using another Gina K Designs stamp duo, Because Of You, lots of bling and ribbon and a beautiful heart charm.  This truly is a card crafted with love!
My Baby Is ENGAGED!!!!!!
