Special anniversary August 24th

The summer of 1963 brought the weddings of four couples who were friends of mine plus my own wedding. Of the 5 weddings two couples lost their mates to cancer, one couple divorced (me), one I don't know the fate of and one very special couple celebrate their 48th anniversary on August 24th! This card is for them. Their love and devotion to each other is a testament to a marriage truly blessed. Congratulations to Jan & Tony, may you have many more precious years together!

Card details -- All products are Stampin' Up
