Happy anniversary to my wonderful husband...

In my "maturity," I have become quite the choco-holic, so to say I love someone more than chocolate is truly saying a lot. I often buy the good quality dark chocolate bars - you know...ones like those from Lindt, Ghirardelli or Godiva. Then my husband and I will have a piece or two of chocolate with our tea after our evening meal.  We both enjoy this a lot, but I'm the one who really LOVES it.

I hand-cut the chocolate kiss for this card and then used a few ProMarkers to shade it a bit and give it some depth. I think you might be able to just make out the shading if you look closely. It's much easier to see IRL.  The hearts were cut from the George cartridge, and you can see that I embossed the white one with the Swiss Dots embossing folder.

I hand-cut the little sentiment banners and added a small glitter heart on the end of each. The hearts were left over from making last year's Valentines, and I knew they'd come in handy! The sentiment was done with my computer and the font is Vivaldi.

The inside is simple with another glitter heart and lots of room to write a personal note.

We don't give each other gifts on our anniversary - we figure it is gift enough just to be together. I think I may offer him a piece or two of chocolate though (and have a couple myself) to celebrate!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope there is lots of chocolate (or whatever else you love) in your life.

Remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
