As our Christmas party was cancelled due to the weather, we're hoping to hold it on 3rd January and celebrate the New Year instead - so it's quite apt that we are able to encompass another celebration on that day - a lady and gentleman at our Club are celebrating their DIAMOND anniversary on 1st January! Amazing!! (And if you saw her on the green you would never believe she's been married for 60 years - a demon player!!). I never believe anyone when they say they've never had 'a cross word' - bet they HAVE had a few cross words in 60 years - I can't believe that they have always agreed with each other over everything! But obviously when ever they have had a disagreement they've done the most important thing and made up!

So yesterday I sat down and made them a card. The beautiful embossed frame was sent to me by Jan some time ago (when she was playing with yet another set of new goodies!! LOL)
I printed the sentiment onto another piece of matching card. I had printed out the number in a lighter shade of grey to give me an outline to work on as I didn't trust myself to stick the gems on freehand - they'd have been bound to end up in a mess.
I added some more sparklies to the frame and some silver mirri card inside the straight edges to give it a bit of depth and then mounted the frame onto the sentiment and glued onto the card.

I hope they like it!
