Imagine being married for 50 years!!!!!!!!

Sounds like a sentence doesn't it!? I made this card for a lovely couple who have been happily married for 50 years and I'm sure it doesn't seem like a life sentence to them!

I'm on a rota to drive people to church and I drive Sandy and Jean every month. They're a lovely couple and devoted to each other. When I first knew them they were both officers in the Boys Brigade and Sandy was Captain when my son finished BBs at almost 18. When they had a car it was never any problem to them to give other people a lift so I think it's good that other people now do the same for them.

I just heard the date of their anniversary the day before so my card was a wee bit late as I had other things to do before I could get a card made. They were delighted with it so I'm happy.

I used :-
Sentiment :- Stampin' Up!
Flowers :- Nellie Snellen punches.
Pearls :- Hobby House.
Embossing folder :- Couture Creations - Tied Together.

I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. A wee bit fancier than anything I've been making recently!

I'd best go and get a raffle prize organised for my WRI quiz night tonight. I've already wrapped one but I thought maybe I'd wrap up some of my cards as a prize too.

Thanks for looking and I'll see you tomorrow with some cards I made for  a colleague.

Thanks also to everyone who leaves lovely comments which encourage me to carry on blogging.
