Happy Anniversary Mam & Dad!!!

Today is my mam and dad's 38th Wedding Anniversary! Happy Anniversary to you both! Only two more years to the BIG 40!!! Congratulations, you made a lovely couple 38 years ago, and after all these years you still make the perfect couple!

I made this little card for the occassion, using a Rachelle Anne Miller image (another RAK) which I think is adorable! I coloured the image with w/c paints as always (well almost always) and the rest is from my stash. I used the sketch from last week's Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge, I just love the scallops. I love the colours too (lilac and chocolate) but they don't show up that well on the photo. The card fits this week's Cute Card Thursday Challenge, which is "Buttons & Bows".

I added a lovely verse to the inside of the card which reads:

We never know
Or fully realize
How sweet and kind our parents are,
How gentle and how wise

We simply take for granted,
From day to passing day,
Each sacrifice they make for us
In their own loving way.

But then we grow and finally learn,
The way that children do,
How much their love has really meant,
How thoughtful they've been, too -

And so this comes with all the thanks
You both deserve and more.
For there aren't two dearer parents
Than the one this card's for

Happy Anniversary Mam and Dad

I found this verse on the internet, the site is called Verses 4 Cards. Go and see for yourself, they have some lovely verses!

Thanks for looking, have a fab weekend!
