A Ruby anniversary card

Yesterday, July 1st, was the Ruby wedding anniversary of Beth and Mark, and Beth asked me to make a card for her to send to Mark.

Now when you see Ruby wedding cards in shops, they are full of red roses and romantic sentiments - but really, most men don't like that sort  of thing do they? And when you've been married to each other for 40 years, the romantic sentiments really don't need expressing - the fact you are still together after all that time says more than any words can! So Beth was looking for a card that would mean something special to Mark without being at all soppy.

After discussing the design with her, based on Mark's interests,  and the words (which she supplied) here is the card I came up with. I hope Mark liked it and that they have many more happy years together.

  1. Thank you Jane. Mark did indeed love it. He spent an age looking at it. It's quite a work of art. It's nice and weighty too, a work of substance in fact. Thank you, once again, for getting it just right.
