Anniversary and Christmas

Morning -today it's our 50th wedding anniversary-but will be just a quiet day!Makes me wonder when you see how much a wedding costs nowadays -we got married in the registry office at ten past nine on the saturday morning and back home by half past as no pubs open then-it had snowed since the Thursday night so a white wedding outside lol but not even a pic no mobiles then.
I also have a card to share with you which I made for a Christmas card swap on the Digi Doodles FB forum.I used the Digi Doodles image
"Joe Frost Snowman" coloured with promarkers,oddments of paper from stash and sentiment from Penny Black.

Many congratulations on your 50th Anniversary, we too had a Registry office wedding I didn't want a fuss a quick civil service was all I wanted.

Love your card and the soft hues you used

Cath Wilson said...

Lovely colours on Mr Frosty... beautifully coloured.
Happy Wedding Anniversary, Carol! and wishing you many more after this ;-) Hope you will at least have a special meal together - you deserve it after 50 years - at the very least! You're right, though - things were very different then and nothing cost anywhere near as much as it does now.
Thanks for joining our Inspired by a Song Challenge at Try it on Tuesday.

Happy 50th wedding anniversary! We got married in Dec of 68 so we'll be celebrating our 51st in a few more weeks! Love that old photo of you - and the card is really cute too! Wishing you a wonderful celebration along with the upcoming holidays!

Lisa Lynn said...

Happy 50th Wedding Anniversary! That's quite an accomplishment!!! Do hope you do something special. Your card is adorable. Love the neutrals.

Aimeslee Winans said...

Adorable card and Carol, Happy 50th to you and your hubby! Wowzers, that photo is wonderful and 2 years before you married! Very sweet, I was nodding in agreement at your comments. My Honey and I got married at the Justice of the Peace 6 weeks after meeting! It will be 33 years in May for us. I could have had a big wedding but I was 31 and over all that by then. Our daughter is getting married Feb. 1 and she's 31, doing it all on her own by choice, we just wrote her a check for $20K. I'm just glad I only have to show up. Planning a wedding not my thing at all. ;-) xoxo

CaroleAnn said...

Love this card as I favor pinks!!! So a big Happy 50th Wedding Anniversary to you both. Such a good looking couple you are!!! I love the black and whites. Get married in rain or snow and your marriage will last forever!!! LOL John and I will be married for 53 years this coming June in 2020!!! Much happiness to you both always with tons of blessings from above!! Hugs

Dee's Craft Room said...

Wow, look at you. The two of you made quite a handsome coupe and so groovy.

Many congratulations on you big anniversary, I hope you enjoyed yesterday and took time to reflect on all that has happened since, your wonderful family and 50 years of happy memories. I was just thinking how much you remembered about your wedding day but then I realised that I also remembered quite a bit of my own wedding day. Thick fog most of the day, it cleared briefly, just before the wedding but returned as it got dark, it stayed nice just long enough for the photos. We got married in October at 16.00 - they had to check the time of sunset to make sure it was legual.

I love this card, such a cute snowman and beautifully coloured.

Love the photo and Santa is pretty cute too.........Lis

Leslie Miller said...

Happy anniversary, Carol! You've really knocked me for a loop just now. The two of you... so young in the pic and 1967 doesn't even seem like so long ago. I was in high school. So many years, though, and hard to think where we all were then and where we are now. Then you got me thinking about my own quickie Reno wedding, which was actually like yours, but in a little chapel. We do have one picture which was part of the deal. Wow. Before I forget... your card is just adorable. I love it.

Gerrina said...

Congrats on your anniversary! Don't think that a big and expensive wedding is a better one; you did it different and modest and see fifty years later! It is all about the work you are willing to put into it...
Love the soft/vintage look of your card! Hope your weekend was a good one! Gerrina x

Karen Letchworth said...

Oooo la la!! you two look hot there in your 70's photo. That's what LOVE will do to you. What a fun picture, thanks for sharing it. Happy 50th to you both. That's awesome. As a 19-year-old bride of 35 years, I know that getting to 50 years came with its challenges, and I commend you both for holding fast to those commitments and making it work. Thanks also for sharing your darling card in our challenge, Carol. It's always a joy to have you play along and share your talents.
Blessings,
