Congratulations Sandra and hubby. What a lovely surprise for you. I remember when my sisters and I arranged a surprise 60th birthday for my Mum...quite a task keeping it a secret :-). Beautiful card as well. Callyx

Kathleen said...

Great card Sandra and a lovely verse. love all the sparkle. Big congratulations to you and your Hubby, hope you kept the present for yourself,lol. We had a surprise party for our 25th, but a neighbour sort of let the cat out of the bag but we pretended that we had no idea. We'd been to South Africa for a month, a surprise from me to my Hubby, to see his best man and the girls arranged it while we were there.
44 years for us, this time, no idea where the time has gone. Hope your Hubby remembered to send you a card as well.
