Happily Ever After..

One of my good friends, Jackie, got married this past weekend.  She lost her husband, Joe, a little over five years ago to lung cancer.  And I'm so thrilled that she has found love again.  She and Gary got married surrounded by their children on Saturday.  I'm wishing them a lifetime of happiness.  Isn't love wonderful?  I'm sure Joe is smiling down on her from heaven with his laugh that could fill a room.
My card colors were inspired by this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge.
