Happy Anni-VERVE-sary Julee!

I have had so little time to stamp these days - I am amazed at the people who have so much going on and still turn out these amazing projects every day! The blog posts out there have been bowling me over!! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa... whatever your celebration is. I had one of the nicest Christmases I can remember. It helps to have 2 little boys who are awaiting Santa and his reindeer with such excitement and delight. One of my boys is a choir singer - the sound of children singing always makes me cry. My guys were also in a Nativity play. I used a lot of tissues in the past couple of weeks. Also, this was the first year in a very long time that I was in a work environment at Christmas time where Secret Santa and lots of other festivities took place... so fun. I worked from my home for 10 years prior for a company that was 750 miles from my home, so my work holiday celebrations were a party of one! It was so much fun this year to have a community to Fa La La La La with! I also sang on Christmas Eve at a children's Mass which was very moving. We celebrated with family and friends here in our home on Christmas Eve. On Christmas Day, we went to a big old fashioned Christmas dinner at our dear Friends' house with lots of wonderful food, many kids, lots of caroling by the fire - just wonderful!!! I am so happy though, that I got to post my latest OCCC card today. I made it on Sunday, but I never got to post it. I need to get back to my stamps and ink!!
So, last Saturday's OCC Challenge was to make either a love of a lifetime/anniversary card/project or just something for that special someone who makes you go all lovey dovey. Vervegirl Julee Tilman presented this challenge in honor of her 11th wedding anniversary. So here is my lovey dovey card to help mark the occasion!

This card is so adorable, Stephanie, Love the layout and owls!! So pretty.
Thanks for the nice compliment about my owls card. I got the pearls at Michael's. They come in a pack with three different sized pearls and are in the stamp/scrap embellishment aisle.
I noticed from your profile you are from NJ. Me too!! I grew up in Willingboro and lived most of my adult life in South Jersey (down the shore) in Absecon, right outside of Atlantic City. Whereabouts are you?
Hope you are having a great holiday season!!
