All I want for Christmas

Hello! Here is another Christmas card. I totally got into making them for the magazine calls, and it is nice to have a leg up on the holiday season already! This time I used Critters in the 'Burbs to create a Christmas card that would be fun for a kid! I paper pieced the puppy, used my Dymo label maker for part of the sentiment and a rub on alpha from the wonderful folks at American Crafts.

Okay, I'm going to get mushy now. :)

Three years ago I married the love of my life and my best friend. I love you so much, Mike. I could not imagine a more amazing person to spend my life with. The past ten and half years have been amazing and the past three years of wedded bliss even more wonderful. I am the luckiest girl in the world.

Our first picture together in 2000
(please don't judge my awful eyebrows! haha!)
One of our engagement photos
Married and so happy!
He makes me laugh
And he is willing to be completely silly with me. What's better than that?
To quote my favorite Ray Charles song: "Hallelujah, I just love him so."

Patterned paper:
Basic Grey (basics: tally, origins: refresh)
Ink: Ranger Adirondack (espresso)
