Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad!

Yesterday, my parents celebrated 41 years of marriage.  I always find it funny that when I call each year to wish them a happy anniversary, they down play their years of marriage and joke that they have no choice but to stay together because who would want them after all these years.  I had a hard time initially coming up with a design idea, however, I knew I wanted the card to be funny. So when I came across the salt and pepper shakers in the From My Kitchen cartridge, an idea came to mind.  The card is very simple, but the sentiment reads "They've been together forever!"  On the inside of the card, I wrote "Just like the two of you."  Cheesy? Yes it is, but comes from love so they'll love it!
