Happy Anniversary

This upcoming week, my parents will celebrate 47 years together.  They are a wonderful example for our family.  It is rare that they are home, since they are always on the "go" doing something to make the most of their days.  They exhaust me just hearing about what they do, and they say they are retired.  Usually I make them a mushy, sentimental card, but this year I went for funny.  I actually used Sizzix card embossing dies and real poker chips and a deck of cards for the inside.  My Mom doesn't check my blog, but she does look at facebook.  I added some Crystal Accents on the eyeglasses.  My Dad doesn't have gray hair, but I thought it looked better on the image.  The sentiment is from TLC on the outside and Bugaboo on the inside.

Hilarious take on the sketch! Love Stella and Gus! Really love the bright palette and fun details, like the cards and poker chips! :^)
Good for them! Gary and I will celebrate our 45th this May. Seems like only yesterday we were married, and it seems like a hundred years ago at the same time, lol! :^)
Hugs, Penny

Oh my gosh, this card made me giggle. Love Gus and Stella but your embellishments are what made this card for me. Great use of poker chips and cards. Thanks for sharing this with us over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.
