Auntie Joan & Uncle Wally

Doug's aunt & uncle will be married 40 years this weekend!
WOW that is a long time ago!
when they got married their bridesmaids wore purple velvet
so I knew I wanted to incorporate some purple

one of the reasons love crafting is for the reflection
the "me time" that I can just think bout nothin
& everything all at once
no pressure 
just crafting
I tend to think bout those I am crafting for
about what they mean to me

as I was makin this card I got to thinkin bout Auntie Joan
how she is a beautiful soul :)
always accepting
lovin my boys
that big smile
with the funnest giggle
the most awesomest socks
& the coolest purplish hair
she always sees the positive in every situation
everyone jokes she wears rose colored glasses
& although my opinion doesn't matter (I am just married in)
I think she is just a very special lady :)
she warms my heart
they say happy is contagious
I love to catch her happy :)






I could not get a good picture so you can not really tell
but the girl "joan" is actually raised & looks as if she is steppin outta the card
into her next 40 years :)
thanks for comin by
hope you are well :)
I combined 2 of my favorite digi companies for this card
will enter this card into
