40 Years

My parents recently celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary.

What an incredible milestone:amazing and inspiring. 

They were in Europe for the last month on a well deserved celebratory trip, and when we picked them up at the airport on Sunday, I gave them this card:
It is very similar to a card I made to celebrate my grandparents 60th anniversary a few years ago. I loved the simplicity of that card, how it highlighted the years spent together, so I used the same design here, with a few little tweaks.
Congratulations Mom and Dad on your 40 years together!


  1. What a lovely memento for them on their special anniversary!

  2. My parents and in-laws both celebrated over 50 years of marriage, and my husband and I enjoyed 38 years of marriage before his death in 2009. Your card for your folks is lovely and a great way to help them celebrate. I admire your card making skill, Rachel. xx

    1. Congratulations to you and everyone in your family for their long years of marriage - certainly something to celebrate and be incredibly proud of. So inspiring...thank you for sharing.
