I needed to get a card made to send to my parents this week. They will be celebrating their 60th anniversary on the 14th! According to custom, this is the diamond anniversary...BUT...diamonds are not their style (nor are they in my budget), so I had to go with some rhinestones instead! :-) Mom will especially love this card since she's the one who crocheted the flowers. The layout is Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge and sewing around the 5 different panels was a real challenge! This card also meets the requirement of Our Creative Corner - to make an anniversary card. Not sure where the warm spring weather went to...it was back to turning on the heat and getting the winter robe out again. Calling for frost tonight which reiterates what my late MIL always said...never plant flowers until after the 14th of May. Hope all you mothers had a special Mother's Day today! I was able to talk with all 3 of my kids and actually got visits from 2 of them!
