Today marks my parents-in-law's 50th wedding anniversary - what a  milestone, hey?  I recently decorated an anniversary album for them, using vintage-y colours, so carried on the theme in their card.  Jack (my eldest) asked me if the choice of stamp sets was significant because Poppa used to breed canaries.  Ah, no, son ...... I just love "Aviary".  (I did laugh, though.) This cute stamp set is available only until 31st March, when Stampin' Up!'s Summer Mini catalogue ends.  The sentiment I've used is from Well Scripted, another of the beautiful stamp sets available only until 31st March.  Let me know if you *need* these sets, won't you?!

Stamps: Aviary, Bella Toile, Well Scripted
Card: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla
Ink: Crumb Cake and Early Espresso stampin' pads
Other: Stamp-a-ma-jig, sponge dauber, Early Espresso 1 1/4" striped grosgrain ribbon, Basic Pearls, stampin' dimensionals, mini glue dots

Tomorrow I'm taking part in a blog hop with some fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators.  Please come back to visit over the weekend, to see what we've all made!
