Happy Silver Wedding Anniversary Mr Stacey & A Vintage Card

Hello peeps,
Thanks so much for all your Anniversary wishes and beautiful cards, we have had a lovely day out today, spent too much money & ate too much food, & I've been thoroughly spoilt with bouquets of flowers and loads of presents, we are both shattered now but it was really lovely :)

I cannot believe we have been married so long, I was only 18 when we got married & some people said I was far too young and it wouldn't last, but it just felt right and thankfully I've never been any good at listening to "well meaning advice" lol. 
Here we are on our Wedding Day looking so young, pre children, grey hairs & wrinkles, or in my case laughter lines lol.
Happy Anniversary Ian you lucky man lol.

We have had a busy few days, we inherited 10 connifer trees when we moved into our house & we had them cut down and removed on Monday, I also had to call out a very nice RAC man as my car became poorly when I was out shopping, it was starting fine but wouldn't let me put it in gear, thankfully it was nothing major just the brake light switch. The very nice RAC man got my car going but the brake lights stayed on constantly & he didn't have the switch my car needed with him so bless his heart he followed me home so I wouldn't get stopped by the police & so I could go home & have a coffee while he went off & bought the switch & came back & fitted it, now that's what I call service :)

Today is new challenge day at 
this week we have a
challenge for you
Unfortunately I have not been able to make a card for this challenge due to my thumb injury but please pop over and see the gorgeous creations my lovely teamies have made.
Simon Says Stamp
Instead of a DT card I have a Vintage 80th Birthday card to share which I made a few weeks ago for a customer.
Ingredients -
Image - free from a Vintage site, sorry I can't remember the name
Papers - Maya Designs
Flowers - Kort & Godt, eBay, Wild Orchid & Prima
Lace - The Ribbon Girl
Pin - homemade
Pearls - Melissa Frances
Tools - MS Cherry Blossom PATP, Magnolia Doo Hickey swirl, Cheery Lyn butterfly
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Divas By Designs - flowers, Make It Monday - anything goes, Inspire Me Fridays - anything goes
I didn't realise it was so late, no wonder I'm ready to drop lol.
Tomorrow we are having new windows in the porch and a new front door which I am so looking forward to as it just looks wrong to me having new double glazed windows and horrible old fashioned etched leaf patterned glass in the porch, so tomorrow thankfully the leaves will be gone :)
Thanks for stopping by

  43. Congrats to you again Mandy for 25 years. You know I just had my 29th on july 30, I too was only 18 when I got married. Looking back now, I would never think my kids when they were 18 were they mature enough to marry. Mine are 26, 23 and 20 and although my daughter (26) is living with and engaged, I would now say she is ready. To bad I had to wait to hold my first grand baby LOL I never thought I'd say that!! I just want to be young enough to keep up! Congrats to you and thanks for giving us the opportunity to win your blog candy. I never even thought about doing that for mine.
    Thanks again, hope that darn thumb gets better fast!! Sherry

  44. Gorgeous wedding photo Mandy :-) what a lovely couple you make :-) Many congratulations and here's to the next 25 yrs ,,,, slurp :-)

    Gorgeous card too :-) hope your thumb is better soon ,,, I missed what happened to it so will go for a look :-)
