Papers are all from Basic Grey! OK, this week's sponsor is Cute Stamps and Cards and they have a fabuolus price for you! Good luck!

As you can see no card from me today for PCC. Clumsy me did a card with an image for one of the September challengers. And since I was away over the weekend I didn't have time to fix it.

Jessie brings us today's challenge, use your punches, any kind. We love to see all the cards made with the same image and see all the different colorings and ideas! Good luck!

Anniversary card!

On Monday I had been married to my hubby for 24 years, he is a wonderful man and my best friend! We are so much a like, so if he forgets I do the same, like on Monday. Nobody remembered what day it was, until a friend told me, oops! I surprised hubby in the evening with a small bottle of Champagne, and the card above, he still didn't get it!! Not even with the text I wrote, oh dear, we are getting old, LOL! But he did surprise me with a party earlier this summer, I am turning 50 on Saturday, so he is forgiven!!

I have used on of the cute Paper Cupcakes images, one you find on the Tea party sketch blog hop! In the same hop we got 14 new sketches (you can still find them at the DTs blogs). This one is made by Amber, even if did some modification, so I could write the text hidden under!
