Our Anniversary cards to share

This is the card I made for my hubby recently for our 40th wedding anniversary.  I loved the old fashioned looking gentleman looking at the musical notes on the side.  He looks like he's deep in thought. Probably remembering when we danced all night (see the little tag).  LOL  Okay......I know...........I've got quite an imagination.  LOL

Card details:
Papers:  Graphic45 "Times Nouveau" & "A Ladies' Diary" and Colorbok "Antique Paperie", Black & Kraft cardstock
TH Alterations Sizzlits Decorative Strip "Filmstrip Frames"
Misc:  Jute, Brad, black glitter accent

This is the card he made for me.  It's soooo sweet.  He came to me that morning & asked me which birdhouse over the kitchen cabinets was "my favorite".  Well it was hard to choose one but I finally did.  He told me not to ask any questions.  LOL  Oh that's a tough one..........but I didn't.  LOL

The front of the card is the aforementioned birdhouse sitting in our yard.  Is that too cute or what?  Then he printed some birdies on his computer for the inside of the card.  He did this all by himself.  I love it!!!  He couldn't have done it any better.  Wouldn't you agree? We're just a couple of ol' love birds.  LOL
