ABC...easy as 1 2 3...Friday Challenge






Today's challenge at notimetostamp#107 is use letters or numbers on your card . That title reminds me of the Jackson Five's song ABC...easy as 1 2 3, bet that will run through my nutty head all day long but anyway in order to do this challenge I thought well I could wish a Happy 25th. anniversary to Sharon & her husband Steve just a few days in advance. Their actual date is the 6th. ( I heard it through the grapevine). 25 years is the silver celebration and I'm sure it adds some silver in all our hairs being with the same person for 25 years. Let's think now ...you love him BUT you hate the dirty socks and undies just left discarded on the floor. You love him BUT why doesn't he help around the house instead of sitting in front of the boob tube watching football, baseball, basketball and did I mentionhe loves his sports?? Then you beg him to cut the grass because it's now 6" tall but he thinks it looks just fine. Well I think you get the picture and you all know what I'm talking about BUT would you give up all the great things about him? Heck no. He's a good provider, a good father, a great partner during the good and bad so now after 25 years you say...he's a keeper. Happy anniversary to Sharon & Steve and many many more.


My card was easy as I used stickers today from Mike's place and they are Mary English Bright or what ever her name is. Just stick them on some nesties and you are good to go.




Hey guys it's the weekend and I sure hope it is a happy one for all of you. My big plans...well I'm going in on Sunday to see my sweet pea Joe. He's a special guy who I've been seeing now for many many years, sounds good doesn't it ! Well truth be told and I always tell the truth Joe's my hair dresser. Bet you thought I had a boyfriend huh? No such luck but I love spending time with Joe as we discuss his love life, the lack of my love life and everything else that we feel like talking about. So have fun and keep a smile on your beautiful faces. See you'll next week.

Perfect card for the challenge, Pat, and hysterical post as usual. My hubby and I are going to have our 25th next year and I know EXACTLY what you mean about all the little 'nuances' about them that make you love 'em and hate 'em at the same time! LOL! Enjoy your weekend!

This is adorable Pat! Love that little image and all the silver touches of course are perfect!

I made a 25th Anniversary card for Sharon and put it in the mail only to find out that is the challenge for today (I didn't take a photo since it was personal) ... guess I could have saved myself some time, Ooops, LOL!!

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Amen to the marriage bit.....I've been married 40 yrs and it's definitely a love/hate relationship, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. It's just Venus and Mars and that's how it is!
Your card is so pretty with all the silver touches, and Sharon is going to love it! She's just a young pup married 25 yrs :)

Oh, my goodness, it's so cute! The stickers make a darling focal point and accents. I agree completely with your views on marriage and spouses, too. Mine is a keeper, for sure, as the years will testify.
