On Tuesday, my darling John and I celebrated our 42nd wedding anniversary.
Our lovely neighbours offered to look after our pets so we could have a few
days away. We went to a beachside town about 2 hours drive away, and
stayed 3 nights at a motel right on the shore. This was our 4th stay there,
and it is wonderful to go to sleep, then wake in the morning, to the sound
of the waves crashing on the beach just metres away from our room.
This is the card I made for my beautiful man. It is A5 size.
I fell in love with this adorable image when I first saw it several years ago, as it
is so relevant to our careers. John and I have performed professionally as a
piano and vocal duo for most of our marriage. While I have never actually
found myself lying on top of the piano, I have often 'draped myself' over
part of it, while singing 'torch songs', or jazz standards. Mind you,
unlike these cuties, John has always worn trousers, and I have
worn a little more than a bow and gem in my hair!!
The inside of my card required very little embellishment due to the
design on the DP. I wrote my 'love message' to John in the
white area in the bottom RH corner.
In place of my usual contact details sticker on the back of the card
(after all John knows how to contact me, te he), I used this
fabulous grand piano die that I bought last month.
