 . . . who happpens to be my mother's twin. (I think my aunt and uncle look very Brady in this picture.) She married her lovely guy 35 years ago and my mom rang recently to remind me to send a card for their anniversary. Like I ever make anything that easy on myself!

I looked online to find that the traditional material for a 35th wedding anniversary is coral. Great, I thought, I'll get some coral beads at the craft store and do a his and hers earring and cufflinks set. Found the beads, but nothing vaguely resembling cuff links findings. Not enough time to have them shipped, either. So I hung onto the beads and waited for inspiration to strike.

It came in the form of a heart shaped glass ornament.

I decoupaged the pictures on the back and very carefully glass glued the beads to the from, with the help of tweezers and a wooden skewer.

And that's my card.

That's very cute...and so are the aunty and uncle.  They do look quite Brady.  I like how some of the coral pieces look like arrows pointing their ways around the heart.
