Sentimental Sunday

Sunday, February 18, 2018
Valentine's Day has always been special since it is also my hubby's birthday.
Dale only worked half of the day so that we could spend the afternoon together.
After running some "errands" we enjoyed a wonderful dinner at a new restaurant. 
This restaurant is managed by a guy at our church and although they do not normally take reservations, he was so kind to set something up for us for Dale's special day.  I guess it pays to work for the church!!
This is the card that I made for him for his birthday
Story behind this card is that Dale loves bridges. Not sure where he acquired his love for them, but he is fascinated by them so whenever we see a bridge, no matter how big or small, we all cry out "BRIDGE!"
This card was made using the WHEREVER YOU GO Stamp Set and was inspired by Kimberly VanDiepen
And this is the card that I made for him for Valentines Day.
I got the idea from one of the gals in my downline who made this card for her hubby. Chris used the MAGICAL DAY Stamp Set for her card.
Great job Chris!!
I had cut out the Dragon and Knight several years ago using my friends Cricut machine during one of our all-day scrapbook events. It has been sitting here all this time planning to use it for a "Knight in Shining Armor" scrapbook page, but I was encouraged to make it into a card first after I saw Chris' cute card.
Chances are I will probably pull the card apart and use it on a scrapbook page, but at the last minute I put the card together. Since the characters are fairly large (remember I was going to use it for a scrapbook page), I had to make the card a 5x7 card - much larger than I normally make.
Dale really IS my "knight in shining armor" because of how well he takes care of me. Considering I had 4 surgeries last year, 1 in 2016 and 1 in 2018 already, he sure has had to pick up the slack. He daily helps me with my stretches so that my back can get strengthened.  In fact, I cannot even remember when I had to vacuum or mop our floors.  Honey, you sure are the BEST!! Thanks for sticking with  me for over 40 years!
We also spent some time with Mom and Dad - so sweet to see their love that has endured through 71 1/2 years
I never make birthday cakes because our family really aren't cake people. Thankfully my sweet friend, Sue, brought over some yummy Dutch Banket. I guess you can put a candle in any treat!
Can you see Lucy trying to grab some treat!
And here we are! Loving strong for 40 1/2 years!!
Thanks for stopping by!
