25 Years!

I've mentioned this couple before. They're big supporters of my little business and both of them like to order cards from me for their wedding anniversary (and ALL their family's birthdays!). Their 25th wedding anniversary, their silver wedding anniversary, was fast approaching and, sure enough, both the husband and wife asked me to make two, fortunately very different, cards.
This first card, above, was requested by the "groom". It was based on their wedding photo. He asked me to add a "25", which I of course created in silver.
"Thanks Lisa for this incredible card!" his wife wrote to me.
She in turn requested a card showing her family's achievements over the last 25 years. I showed all five members of the family on the card. The husband and wife have their company logos next to them, representing their professional lives. Their twin sons are currently in the Israeli army. G., on the left, is wearing his olive green Israeli army uniform and the brown beret of the Golani Brigade. A., on the right, is wearing the dark green beret signifying that he is in Military Intelligence. Both young men hold the rank of Officer and have the two stripes on their sleeve to show it. Their sister, in the middle, is about to finish High School. Mum asked me to show her wearing a black graduation cap with a tassel. I finished the card off with "25 Years" in silver lettering and added a silver heart.
This time the husband showed his appreciation. "Great card, Lisa" he wrote on his Facebook wall.

From jesh StG (trying out if I can avoid having to sign in to google!) Oh, lots of achievements in this family! Which I thought was a great idea to commemorate together with their anniversary! Love it! And thank you much for sharing it with All Seasons! Have a great summer week! How hot is it there now? Last week we reached (only one day though) 91 degr. F.

How interesting that both should order a card - the individuality of the requests tells a little about their unique personalities - very cool!
