Happy Anniversary to My In-Laws!

Today is my Father and Mother-in-Law's Anniversary! I feel awful that I don't know exactly how many years they have been married (it's somewhere between 58-60) but my DH doesn't know either and he's their son (obviously!!) I also feel pretty bad that this card is only going in the mail today, so it will be late. I had intended to use this really cute set by Verve called Anniversary Birds, and I ordered it a couple of weeks ago, but it didn't get here in time (not Verve's fault - they mailed it right away. Then I watched the tracking info from the Post Office quit moving!!) So, I had to go with an older set from Cloud 9 Design for the sentiment. (I did get my Verve order late in the afternoon today, but I'd already finished the card!) I also used the sketch from Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge # 38.


The Details:
Stamps: Simple Thoughts :Love - Cloud 9 Design, Bountiful Backgrounds - Verve
Paper: Very Vanilla, Night of Navy, Choc Chip, Mellow Moss
Ink: Mellow Moss, Distress Ink - Tea Dye and Vintage Photo
Misc: CB Embossing Folder, Nestabilities, Craft Ribbon, Bazill Paper flower, Martha Stewart Gem


Thanks for visiting!
