Handmade Anniversary Card

Hello and Happy St. Patrick's Day! I chose not to make another St. Patrick's card. I have a different occasion to share. If my great-grandparents were still living, today would be their 80th wedding anniversary. They were married on March 17, 1933 and they made it 71 years together before my great-grandmother passed away. I asked her one day how she stayed married that long? She replied with "never go to bed angry, always work it out." Words of wisdom! When I think of their accomplishment, it still makes me go "WOW!" I've been married 15 years and that is just a fraction of the time they spent together. This Handmade Anniversary Card was made thinking of their marriage and the great role models they were for our family. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
