Truly Scrumptious # 50

Started this on Friday night after tea before getting Shannon from work at 9pm and Sophie from her friends at 9.30pm and then thought I could make two of these cards and they would do for anniversary cards for our parents.  So got them finished last night.
My mum and dad's 44th anniversary is on the 25th March and hubby's mum and dad's 45th anniversary is on the 17th March (St Patrick's Day). 
I have wanted to use this image but didn't know what for and this seemed appropriate.  Although hubby thought I was maybe pushing it a bit and telling them they were "old." 
I wish I had got this image two  years ago as it would have suited hubby's grandparents better.  They were 94 and 97 when they passed away and this image would have suited them so well.

I am only entering my card into one challenge this time :-

Thanks for popping by and visiting.  Your comments are very much appreciated.  Hope everyone has had a good weekend.

Took Hollie to the cinema this afternoon to see Disney's Tangled.  Was very good although I cried at the end. Yes, I even cry at Disney films. Shannon and Sophie went to see A Little Bit of Heaven, I think that is what it is called and when Shannon came out, you knew she had been crying and Sophie said she cried throughout the film. Both said it was a very good film and they enjoyed it.

Must go and get the dinner started as hubby has been working in the new shop to try and get it ready for opening in about a weeks time.  Still getting nowhere with the loss assessors so we have contacted our insurance company directly to try and get it sorted.

Hi Donna,
Love these cards and I think they'll raise a few smiles from your parents and in-laws! My silver wedding anniversary is in September and, although I'm only in my early 50s, I'd laugh if I got one of these. Mind you, some days I feel ancient! Reading about you dashing here and there makes me feel tired, lol!! Good luck with the shop. x

You are brave! I'd stand well back for fear of getting a clip around the ear. Good thing your mum has a sense of humour.
Can't keep up with all your posts - loving all the cards. Doing the insides makes such a difference too.
By the way if you want to try out the Grand Calibur anytime give me a shout.
