Day 3: You are Sublime ...

Happy Wednesday!

It's day #3 in my summer series "5 days of ..."
and I'm swimming along with

The Alphabet Game!

I could not have been more excited to see today's :
the letter "L"!

I knew right away which company I would pick when I saw "L"
and I knew exactly the stamp set, too :)

My husband and I celebrated our 25th year of marriage
a couple of months ago (but together for 34!)
and I am absolutely, unequivocally as deeply in love with him
today as I was all those years ago.
He's truly the other half of what makes me whole ~
as a wife, a mom, as me ♥

And he EELY likes my cards!
He's super supportive and encouraging and truly my biggest fan ♥
When I make him a card,
he keeps every. last. one!

I colored my Lawn Fawn  You are Sublime and die cut them 
to create an underwater scene. 
The background piece was created by using a simple sheet of white
cardstock and blending and blending and resting my elbows and blending 
with a couple of distress oxide inks.
After adding a frame and the sentiment,
I popped up almost all of the cut-outs on 3d foam, added sequins
and some wink of stella in the submarine windows and the coral.

I had a sweet friend as me the other day if I still do the inside of my cards :)
The answer is:  yes!
I usually just don't show them anymore as I'm switching up 
the way I do a few things on my blog ...  AND ....
because each card is specifically made for someone or
I give them away as part of my #yearofkindess,
I try to let that part be a surprise!

I tailored his card to fit the Lawn Fawnatics challenge this week
so I'll enter my card there!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
