Happy Anniversary

I"m baaaaaack!  Did you have a good Christmas?  We sure did.  We went to a beautiful candlelight service at our church on Christmas Eve.  Two ladies at our church can sing like no body's business.  I could listen to them all day.  At the end of service the whole congregation stands, with our candles lit, and we sing Silent Night.  I doubt there was a dry eye in the place.  I get goosebumps thinking about it.  After church we went to my Mom and Dad's, ate lots of food and opened lots of presents.  Then we repeated that on Christmas Day.  Santa was very generous!

Ok, how about a card?!   

My parents wedding anniversary is in less than two weeks so I made a card for them.  I decided to use a new file from The Cutting Cafe called This Cake is All Heart (this is a BRAND NEW file and will be released soon) to make this cake-shaped card. 

It was super easy to cut out with my NEW aqua Cricut Expression (purchased on Black Friday - my sister-in-law and I pulled an ALL-NIGHTER!) and Sure Cuts A Lot.         

Sorry, I know this is a tiny picture but it gives you an idea of the wonderful color.

My Mom's birthday is January 1, yep, she's a New Years Baby.  So I'd better get to work on a birthday card ASAP!
