Happy Anniversary

Don't you just love this clock image? I sure do! It's from a fairly new set from Mark's Finest Papers & it's called Take The Time & Father's Day. It's great for masculine cards and scrapbook pages. Today's Free for All challenge on SCS was to make a masculine card; and the Queens for the Day was Connie Jo9. I cased this card

I made several changes and tweeks to accomodate the image size, the verse and a more masculine pallete & now it is a little hard to see the Connie Jo's original in my card. But it was this card of Connie's that inspired me.

On a personal note, this Sunday my husband & I are celebrating our 29th wedding anniversay & this will be his card. My husband is the best man in the world and a great father. I am just so very blessed!

Thanks for stopping by!
