CropStop Challenge #57-Wedding/Anniversary Card

Happy Thursday y'all! How has your week been going? Mine's been a little crazy and painful! I somehow strained a muscle in my neck on Monday and it completely locked up on me....OUCH! I went to the Urgent Care and got some meds, but then on Tuesday it got worse to the point I couldn't move it at all. So, I ended up in the Emergency Room Tuesday night! Hours later along with an IV, pain meds, and a stronger muscle relaxer, I was doing much better...YAY! It still hurts, but at least I could turn it about an inch both ways yesterday and today....thank goodness for modern medicine! :)

Today's CropStop Challenge is to make a Wedding/Anniversary Card.

I have a few wedding images, but this one from The Greeting Farm called Kissy Kissy was calling my name. For those of you who don't know, I started my blog because I fell in love with these images and wanted to join in their challenges to try and win some free ones. My first several blog posts are all TGF. In addition, one of my great joys last week was meeting Jessica for the first time in person at CHA. I'm sure she has no idea how big a fan I am! I tried really hard not to stalk her at CHA, LOL! :)
