Celebrate Love!

Hi friends.  I'm calling summer 2011 "The Hospital Summer".  I'm happy to be able to report that my sister and mom are doing well now.  A big, heartfelt thank you to all of you for your concern and prayers.  You really touched my heart.  Shortly after my sister and mom got out of the hospital my husband landed in the emergency room and then five days in the cardiac unit with his heart condition.  He gave me a nasty scare, but he's doing well now.  The doctor has him on new medications and except for being tired from the medication he's back to normal.  While hubby was in the hospital I was using his van and someone backed into it in a parking lot.  Ruined the back bumper, but we were fine, except that it upped my stress level. :)  Hubby is principal and a teacher at a residential boy's school and the boys were back for the start of school three days after hubby was released from the hospital.  So much for his easing back into things like the doctor told him to.  The humorous thing is that hubby honestly thought that WAS easing back into things.   Plus he had worked some on the 3 days in between. lol

Next our daughter had her turn at the emergency room due to her doctor insisting she go there during an office visit.  It ended up being a waste of time and money seeing they didn't diagnose her problem.  Just gave her pain meds she had an allergic reaction to and told her to go to a specialist.  So she's seeing the specialist now and having tests. 

Okay, enough of that stuff.  On to my card.  I made this for Mark for our 30th wedding anniversary.  Thirty years and we're more in love than ever. :)  Can't beat that!  The sentiment is from a digital set called "Celebrate Doodled" by Create with TLC.  The hearts are from the "Amore and More" clear stamp set by Scrappy Cat and I used my "D'vine Swirls" Cuttlebug embossing folder for the background.  The sentiment is
on a Spellbinders "Labels Eight" die.
 I used clear glaze pens on the sentiment to make it shiny and raised and I used clear embossing powder to do the same for the hearts.  I inked the edges of the hearts with silver ink.
