Anniversary Cross-stitch

Wow it seems like weeks since I have been on the computer and it has only been 4 full days.  We took my Dad back to Michigan and then visited with my hubby's parents, sister and niece, it's always good to see family.

Since I haven't had a chance to make a card I am going to post a picture of the cross-stitching I did for the kids anniversary.  I wanted to do them something for the wedding but never did get it done so decided it would be a good 1st year gift.

This was a kit from Dimensions called Happily Ever After Wedding Record,  and I bought it at Hobby Lobby if your interested.  It is on 14 count canvas and is 5x7 size, so I was able to buy a frame from Walmart for it.  I planned on getting one at Michaels but saw this one and really liked it.  A little bit of a glare off the glass.

Well I have sprained my ankle, it is just one thing after another for me it seems, I feel like this is going to go down as the year of my injuries.  VBS starts next week at church and I am suppose to be helping out with crafts, so I am hoping to be able to take it easy now that we are back from our trip and heal up in time.

Hope you all enjoy a wonderful weekend,
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,

This is a beautiful gift! I love the lighter shaded sentiment and flourishes behind the main sentiment. It's subtle, but very effective. I used to cross stitch, but gave it up when I developed a tremor. This makes me want to try it again.

Very nice! Your cross stitching is beautiful and the pattern would look nice as a stamped card. I'm glad you shared it!
