Silver Wedding Anniversary

Hi there on this overcast but still warm day here. It was our Silver Wedding Anniversary on the 3rd of September. It doesn't seem that long ago since Stuart and I got married but we've done quite well since Stuart's grandad pointed out, when we had booked the wedding, that that was the date World War 2 started. I'm pleased it wasn't a bad omen for our marriage!  So the cards I've put on today are the card I made for Stuart and the card my mum made for us. 
As Stuart doesn't like fussy cards I made a simple card in white and silver. The background paper is a pearlescent silver and not as dark as it looks in the photo.
My mum's card is beautiful, made with Hunkydory products. No one would believe she was partially sighted on seeing it!

This is her lovely card
