An Anniversary card for my daughter

We are celebrating 10 years of marriage for my daughter and her husband...my husband and I celebrated our 42 two days before theirs, so we are all going out to dinner tonight, including our older daughter and her husband.  It is all about family, isn't it?  We are so thankful for the many blessings and the good health that we seem to have right now...God is good and so merciful, we praise Him for answering our prayers...so of course we are all celebrating together!

Lacey actually had yellow lily's for her bouquet, but I do not have a Lily stamp (how is that?) so I went with yellow roses from Rosie Posie!  And I used a favorite sketch from Muse.  The sentiment is from Round & Round (an anniversary set, not available for purchase).  I did stamp the inside as you can guess by now...but I wrote inside before I remembered to take a picture...I stamped the bigger rose, but I stamped it off once then placed it in the center of the card and on top of that I used the anniversary stamp from Think Big # 24, which is a bigger stamp from Beautiful Blooms...I think they will like this card, even if it doesn't have her flowers on it!  Congrats to my Lacey, we have had our struggles also, but through the grace of God and many many prayers we are all in a good place now and I couldn't be more proud of her and her family!

  5. Hi Colleen, Thanks for the visit to my blog. I just bookmarked yours and have to say I am in total agreement that family is everything. We don't have a large family, 2 sons, 2 daughter-in-laws and 4 grandchildren but they are the greatest. I treasure the time we spend with them especially since they are growing up. We just had our 46th ann. in May and I can't believe how fast the time has gone. Very cute card and I'm sure she will like it. Your card before that is great. Have a wonderful time celebrating.
