Our 1st Wedding Anniversary

This is my husband on our wedding day 1 year ago today. Below is the anniversary card that I made for him. My sense of humour may be a bit warped but I was cracking up laughing the whole time I was making it. An artist I am not but I tried to make it look like him and I printed out the sentiment on the computer.
