42 years and a Thank you

Hi, all. I have 2 matters of business today. Today is my 42nd wedding anniversary and I won "card of the week" at Die Cuttin Divas.  It was a very fun challenge,3 R's-rosettes, ribbon and rhinestones. I want to thank Georgiana very much for picking me. You should visit her and the DT at for some fun challenges. The next one is a sketch challenge. Thanks again Georgiana.
Now the anniversary part of this post. The last few years I seem to make my hubby a couple of cards for our anniversary. This is the one I made sure he would get at work.  This was one of those that started to form in my mind and I just couldn't let it go. It had to be  a card.
My grandson asked me who my favorite "super hero" was when I was a kid. I explained to him we didn't have many cartoons and they were only on TV on Saturday mornings for a couple of hours. But we did have one "hero".He was a flying mouse, Mighty Mouse!
My hubby's nickname is "Bird". It was given to him when he was a small boy and it has stuck with him. We met when we were 12 so that's what I have always called him.
Well I started thinking about Mighty Mouse and remembered the bird "super hero" on 3 Birds on Parade.
When Mighty Mouse was going to save Penelope Pitstop from Oilcan Harry he would sing, "Here I come to save the Dayyyy!" And he would always win.
So that's how this card came to be.
3 Birds on Parade - super hero bird cut at 1.82, small bird shadow cut at 1.0, and my hero cut at 2.87
Cricut Essentials - heart cut at 1.7
Sentiments - me and the computer, glitter, inking, punches and buttons

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoyed  my card. Hugs and God bless.
