Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad

Forty nine years ago today, my Mom and Dad got married in Pasadena, California. They had 4 children and are now retired and living here in Nebraska. I wanted to do something special for the two of them this year so I hosted a wonderful anniversary dinner for them at my home this past Sunday. We had beef tenderloin, baked potatoes, fresh corn, dinner rolls and for dessert a beautiful cake I purchased.

I made this card from a CASE I got off of pinterest. It was originally made by Chat at Me, My stamps and I. She makes wonderful cards!!

I changed out the sentiment but other than that I copied everything!

It was a good day spending it celebrating 59 years of marriage with my mom and dad. We brought out their wedding album and enjoyed looking at the photos. My husband and I have been married 34 years (35 in July). Time goes by fast!

A Different kind of Sympathy Card

When a member of your family passes away it is a very sad time in your life. Even when it is a pet. We have had several pets here on the Slagle farm and whenever we lose one it is heartbreaking. A neighbor's family dog passed away recently and I wanted to send them a note to let them know I care.

I made the paw using the SU! heart and oval punches. The inside was very simple. The sentiment of the front and inside is from the SU! So Sorry stamp set.
I took these photos before I discovered PicMonkey.
I have been busy making Valentine treats for friends and relatives. I will share them soon!
Also, I have really exciting news! I entered radio contest and WON!!!! I won 2 tickets (with a meet and greet) to The Band Perry and Easton Corbin and a nights stay at a hotel next to the concert arena! So excited - this is the biggest thing I have ever won! I will have pictures to share after I go!
