Celebration 66! -- Heart2Heart Challenge

This week the challenge at Heart2Heart was to use a photo as a focal point ...
I'm much more of a scrapbooker than I am a cardmaker.
However, I captured this endearing photo of my parents on April 21st 
and decided to use it for this challenge.

On that day, they said "I do" again. Sixty-six years after their wedding day.
I wrote their exact words inside the card.
This will be a remembrance card for them to look at each day.

I'm so thankful I could be with them to celebrate their 66th, and to capture 
this special moment when Mom rolled her walker 
over to Dad and took his hand,
and they had their heart-warming conversation.

Card inside and envelope corner stamp:

After I wiped a few tears away, 
I asked Mom if she wanted to try on her wedding gown--
just for old times' sake--
and she said, "I don't!"

We all laughed.

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your comment!

I used:
Close To My Heart products:  Splendor papers, Cranberry and Dutch Blue inks, Cranberry and Sunflower Waxy Flax, Cranberry Ribbon, Foam Pop Up Squares, 
and Stamps from these sets:
Cherish the Moment; He Said, She Said; Classmate Alphabet; Amore Numbers; and Dainty Thoughts
