His and mine are the same...

Happy Tuesday everyone!

I hope everyone is having a great week so far. The weekend sure did fly by! I celebrated my 30th this weekend... had a really nice dinner with the hubs, went to see a movie (which, unfortunately was a dud - but enjoyed the time together) and had a couple of really enjoyable meals out. Yes. We love to eat. HA! ;)

Along with celebrating my birthday, we also had to have all four tires and the alternator replaced on our Jeep. Fun. Stuff. It really set us off track with our savings, but all of it's necessary and so we simply need to get back on track! I am truly grateful that the hubs really enjoys his work, which provides more than enough for us. We are simply blessed.

With all that gratefulness in mind, I put this simple card together, inspired by Just Us Girls Challenge No. 98. {It's been a good while since I joined in on the fun with the "Girls." I've missed the great fun and inspiration there! Be sure to check them out. :) }

Although I adore patterned paper, floral and distressed ones like this kinda intimidate me. I just don't know how to work them at times! So, I kept it clean and let the colors be the main thing.

Oh, and how about that sentiment?! I just absolutely love it! I think it describes how most of us feel about that important person in our lives. :)

Have a great rest of the week and thanks for stopping by! Leave a comment, I love reading them. :)
