well, at least from my perspective!
My parents 45th Wedding Anniversary was a week ago. I can't believe they have actually been married for that long (and they were together for at least 5 years before that!) As high school sweethearts I'm not sure THEY imagined they'd still be together so many years later...but I am very happy that they are. They have set a wonderful example for me of what it means to believe in the vows that have been exchanged, and they seem to understand that it takes work to make a marriage last! Now if we kids can just keep them from killing each other all will be good! ;-)
I made them this card (with a little incentive from Joan's Black & White card contest a few weeks back) and they have finally received it, so I can post it here now. You may have already seen it on SCS...my mom doesn't go there so I can "hide" cards from her there!
I stamped the French Flair background with White Stazon on to an SU Window sheet. (Anyone know how to get White Stazon off rubber??? A RAK to whoever can help me!!) I then wrapped it around to the inside of the card and adhered it inside with SNAIL. I embossed the Happy Anniversary sentiment with Sterling Silver embossing powder on Whisper White CS, then clipped the corners and mounted on Brushed Silver cardstock. This I attached with dimensionals (and managed to cover up the smudge!) And then topped it off with some white organdy ribbon with a little silver cord.
I was very happy with the end result...may just have to do more with these acetate window sheets! Have a great day everyone...we're off to Venlo in the Netherlands (after taking Hubby to the airport) to check out the scrapbooking store there. Who knows...maybe I'll find some good candy! :-)
