Sapphire Wedding Anniversary.....




Today is our Sapphire Wedding Anniversary...45 years of marriage..

I've used this great Mo Manning image called 'Extra' which I think could cover a lot of different occasions but thought it very apt for our Anniversary...as we all know mens cards aren't easy at the best of times.

Backing papers are from Stampin up, Martha Stewart fence punch and whimsy Corner dies....

Shame the photo of Andy has him wearing sunglasses but he's still the handsome devil I married 45 years ago, but been together for 50 years .I did remind Andy that it was our Sapphire Anniversary and reminded him of the love Ruby ring he bought me on our Ruby Anniversary..  Sapphires.... we shall see...
