PRETTY - as always! :-)
And those giraffes are definitely super cute - what a great picture for an anniversary card!!
I like those peachy color hues and the green - lovely color-combination!
And it´s great, that you remind me of these window cards - sometimes we know things, but don´t think of them...
Hope, you have a pleasant day!

Hi Stacey. You made me laugh with your comment that your thoughts were early even if the card was a bit late. LOL. As someone who can so easily 'over think' her cards herself I can sympathise & empathise with that one! LOL. Fun image for the anniversary theme too.
Tine :)

Hi Stacey!
THis came out real sweet. I remember that picture its so adorable! I'm not sure that I've ever done a window card before. I think the closest thing to one was that spinner card, remember ?
I think I finally fixed my computer. You know me, too impatient to get someone to come over, I just have to figure it out myself. I went to the start menu and got into one of the APPDATA files responsible for GMAil and renamed it Backup. THis cleared my bookmarks (a bit of a bummer but there was too much in there anyway)and now it seems back to normal.It seems that my gnail had become "corrupted". Probably that spam I opened by mistake...
