Happy Birthday and a Wedding...

Hello!

I have two reasons for this post. One is a card, which is this one.
I used PTI Strawberry Patch stamps. Colours are PTI Fresh Linen, SU! Barely Banana & Pool Party. Card base is PTI Basic White.

I made this card for Retro Sketches #46. I just LOVE this sketch, but then, I love most of the Retro Sketches!
And I used the colours from CR84FN #70. I wanted to join in before they go on holidays until March!

And the other reason for this post is a bit of fun which is happening over on Ardyth's Blog to celebrate Darnell's wedding anniversary. I like Ardyth and Darnell a lot, and I thought I'd join in. I'm sorry, Darnell, that I didn't make an anniversary card, but today inspiration on this front eluded me! I hope your day was fabulous! We have been invited to share our wedding photos, and I have two here to share today.
This was us back in 1999.  One day I might show you some photos from our early days. We met early in 1993, became friends, and started dating in September that year. And the rest, as they say, is history! :-)

Thanks for dropping by to visit!

Aw, Michelle, your photos are so lovable and priceless! Thank you so much for joining in the fun and posting your photo! (I love how the CR84FN colors are in the stylish top photo - serendipity!)

You had a lovely long courtship and look blissfully happy! (Love the body language!) But could you please let me know the month and day in 99, so that I can return the flavor of sweet congratulations wishes in a comment to you on your blog on your special day? Please.

No card was necessary for this fun idea, but I'm happy you posted your retro take. I love it!!

I'm sorry I didn't come by sooner. I took some time off to actually celebrate with Mister, and I'm slowly making my way through the fantastic links.

Thanks again! Mwah! Darnell
