It's My Anniversary

It's my  45th wedding anniversary.  It is hard to believe.  My husband and I look at each other and ask the same question:  "How can we have been married that long?  We are not old enough!"  LOL   But, alas, we are.
So you want a few laughs?  Here is our wedding pic.

And here we are now !

These were taken just last week at my Mom's 90th birthday party. We don't have a recent photo of us together.   Maybe Hubby will agree to one soon. (That would be a great anniversary gift, Honey. Hint, Hint)

Well, enough of that torture. On to the card I made for my husband.

Isn't that a cute image?  It is a digital by MoManning.   It is colored with Prisma pencils.  The designer paper is from my new stack by Heartfelt Creation.  I cut the lattice out from a Kraft pad.  Happy Anniversary is embossed.
The inside says:
"The best thing to hold onto in this life is each other."

Now here is another card totally different and unrelated to my anniversary.

Stamp set is Our Daily Bread Designs  "Sweet Williams" .  There probably isn't any such thing as yellow sweet williams.  I've always done them in pinks purples, blues and decided to do them in yellow for fun.  Yellow and green is one of my favorite combinations.

  1. WOW! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! Love your card. I am sending myself a note to use Mo Manning's image next year for my DH's card!
    We celebrated our 50th last August. No way we have been married that long! But child #1 (of 5) will be 50 this May. So........
    Congratulations! I love following your blog (I don't have one), as we have a bit in common. Your cards have provided lots of inspiration for my card creations. Thanks for that. Email me back if you care to.

  2. Congratulations and Happy Anniversary. 45 Year! Super!

  3. Congrats on your Anniv! Like both cards. The Anniv card is wonderfully colored & like the trim on the left side. The flower card has wonderful flowers & flourish appeal. Thank you for entering MFP Simple Salutations Spring challenge.
