I love giving hand stitched bookmarks. I have been trying to incorporate these into cards so that the joy of receiving a card keeps going when the bookmark can be used every day. The ribbon can be taken off the card, the bookmark removed, and the ribbon tied back onto the bookmark.
I was asked by a friend to make a special card for a 65th anniversary. I couldn't say no because you have just have to celebrate these priceless moments in life! So this afternoon I dropped everything and started stitching. I hope the "young" couple have a wonderful celebration filled with love and happy memories.
Happy New Year! I thought I would start the year inspired by the Merry Monday Christmas Card challenge and this week's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. I don't often use ribbon in my projects but this week's challenge on Merry Monday called for a little extra decoration so I added the gold ribbon. My sweet Rudolph is hand stitched and there are two little black beads for his eyes but they are very hard to see in this photo.
