What could be better to celebrate an anniversary than a Happy Anniversary card for Mom and Dad. Yes, today, September 22nd is their 68th anniversary. What a milestone! Mom and Dad were married at the end of World War II before my Dad was discharged from the Navy. So, yes, her was married in his naval uniform and Mom still has her wedding dress tucked away somewhere. I don’t quite know where that somewhere is and one day I should find out.
My Dad still takes my Mom’s hand when they are walking and it is so nice to see. Yes, and I know that I am lucky to have my parent around to celebrate those many years together.
Here is a picture of them from our trip to Saskatchewan just lately. We stopped in a little town called Maple Creek for a coffee and oh yes, the donuts.
Looking good if I don’t say so myself.

I did an envelope using the new Envelope Maker. I goofed on the size of the card and thank goodness I had the Envelope Maker as the card measured 5-1/2″ x 4-1/2″. That what you get for grabbing a piece of card stock and not measuring it before you start. It’s real hard to eyeball a 1/4″. Hoo Woo, the envelope maker makes 66 different sized envelopes and a whole lot more.
I also used the clear sheet that comes in the Quatrefancy DSP and overlayed it on to a plain piece of Strawberry Slush to tie in that side of the card with the other side which has a different mosaic pattern.
Finally a background frame for the Label Love was completed by cutting the punched card stock in half and then layering behind the sentiment.
So there you have it, a Happy Anniversary card for Mom and Day
