Bookmark Card

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.

Message inside the card:
Happy Birthday

Wedding rings

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.

All is Bright

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.

Message on the inside of the card:
Merry Christmas

Here is this week's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:
