Merry Monday Challenge #118

Hello & Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
We spend Saturday with my parents and then yesterday on the Susquehanna River with Kirsten & Brad, my hubby, Kelsey and for the first time we took Gigi & Bailee with us!




 Oh how fun and the doggies loved it! Bailee took a huge jump in the water to visit another dog that was swimming around. I never expected her to do that! Luckily, Shawn was with her because she did not have a life jacket on. I think we will have to get them one! Gigi liked on the boat but the water, not so much! They had so much fun! Kirsten took us out to celebrate Shawn & I's 24th wedding anniversary which is today! We were treated to a nice time and dinner on the island before bringing the boat back into the dock. 
Happy Anniversary to my awesome hubby of 24 years today! He's the best!

Anyways, today we have a new challenge from over at Merry Monday! Lori is our fabulous hostess this week, so let's get to it!






I had this beautiful image already colored in my Christmas stash so I just went ahead and added it to a card along with my ribbon & button. My card is a Z Fold style card. I love these for bigger images.
