Today is my wedding anniversary. Chris and I have been married 18 years. It's hard to believe. Sometimes it seems like yesterday, and sometimes it feels like a lifetime has passed. I made this card to give to Chris. The photo is of us on our wedding day. Geez, we were young! ;)
The background is the Scalloped Tile Backgrounder and the sentiment is from Motivational Centers. Both are from Cornish Heritage Farms. Cardstock and brads are from SU!. The gorgeous 1" black organdy ribbon is from Flourishes.
You might think this is an odd sentiment for an anniversary card, but really it describes our marriage perfectly. Over the years, there have been a lot of "Why Nots" in response to our own questions: Is it time to start a family? Should we have child #2? Should I get my Masters Degree? Should Chris start his own business? Should we move to a new home? Should we have child #3? Should we try again after our miscarriage? Should we have child #4? Should I pursue my love of paper crafting? Should I apply for that Design Team? Each time we asked those questions (and many others), the only answer was "Why not?" -- all we needed to do was follow our hearts and put everything in God's hands. It has worked pretty well so far, and it has made for a very interesting life. :)
