A card I made for my neighbour's mother who is 92 and even though she is a widow her daughter-in-law wants to acknowledge her wedding anniversary with a card. Thinking about her history.......I got inspiration when I saw the photo on our inspiration site this evening. http://www.aviewoncities.com/gallery...?key=kveen1410
You see, Elsie was a WAC during WW11 and stationed close to London. Her fiancé was among the Canadian troops who liberated the Netherlands, and years later they took many trips back to Holland as the Netherlands honour their liberators every May 5. I noticed after I took the photo, that I had put the wrong date on the little banner....good thing I could change it before giving it to my neighbour.

Love how you captured all of those memories in your fantastic inspired design ... absolutely fabulous (if you'll remove the space between your *I* and *C* in IC379, it will show-up in the gallery so everyone can enjoy it).

Your friend's mom will sooo appreciate the thought you put into this card. Sometimes, it's hard to be a widow when your anniversary rolls around and everyone looks the other way. Your card will invoke wonderful memories for her. Brilliant!
If you open someone's card, you must have liked it...please leave a comment to encourage them!
