Today me and my husband will have been together eight wonderful years. It's the day we met. We celebrate it as our anniversary..crazy huh. We had decided to get married on this day, but  for some strange reason everytime we planned just got postponed. So my husband surprised me with a trip to Eureka Springs, AR. My MIL, youngest son and my DBIL where there. It was wonderful. We stood on a cliff over looking the town to exchange our vows,  but it never change how we felt about the day to celebrate our Anniversary. So there you have it.   Probably more info than you cared to know. lol.
I'm off to share the day with my DH...Happy Anniversary Honey!!

Wishing everyone a very Blessed Day!!

Butterfly Tilda

Hi everyone!!! I think Spring is finally trying to show it's face around here. Beautiful blue skies today and nice temperatures. I'm so ready for spring.
I played hooky from work today, but only to see if I can work on my washing machine again. I have replaced about everything on it and it stills refuses to spin out. Urrr!! I cannot imagine going to long with out it. 
I decided to play some in the craftroom to calm my nerves. I found some really fun challenges to enter, so I created a little cute Tilda with butterflies. She is so cute and reminds me of spring. 
I used my copics to color her and the smooshing technique (I think thats what is called) to go around her. I hope I did it right. It was fun anyway. It did help calm my nerves and I have decided to take it to the Maytag place and see if they can fix it. Crossing-fingers that it does not cost to much. 
Enough babbling for now...and thank you for stopping by.
