Celebrating 50!

In August, I will have been married for 23 years. That sure seems like a long time, and I guess it is. But can you imagine being married for 50 years?

My Mother-in-Law was short 1 week of making it to her 50th Anniversary, but what is a week right? So we are counting it. If you are lucky, you will marry not only a wonderful man, but into a wonderful family. I was one of the lucky ones.

These two people welcomed me into their family and treated me just like a daughter. Family was the most important thing to this wonderful couple and they lived it and shared it for 50 years!

I use vintage pictures in many of my designs. My family has two boxes of old photos that I will be going through. Rather than find old pictures to use, I have decided to use my own. So while they may be strangers to you, my family will be immortalized through my card making.

Thanks for stopping by!

I would like to share my card with the following challenges:


  1. What a wonderful idea to use your vintage photos on cards. Thanks for sharing at The Male Room.

  2. A wonderful card with a special photo. Thank you for sharing it with us at Stamps and Stencils.

  3. What a lovely anniversary card in honor of your in-laws. It's always nice to use personal photo's on the cards we make - thank you for joining us in the A Vintage Journey Challenge!

  4. What a wonderful story and card. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Inspiration Destination this week.

  5. What a wonderful way to preserve personal memories rather than keeping them in a box. Thanks for joining us at Frilly and Funkie.

  7. A beautiful tribute to a very special couple! I love the vintage feel of your piece but most of all I like the way it is made with love! Thanks so much for joining us at Stamps and Stencils. Julia x
