HS:MS stitch

When I saw what the prompt was on HS:MS today I knew what I'd do. 'A friend of Lilo's from outer Space - show us Stitch in your space.'

This is very apt on our wedding anniversary to take a photo of a lovely cross stitch piece of artwork that was given to us as a wedding present - it hangs in our bedroom.

The photo was taken at a funny angle to avoid the flash reflecting on the glass - or my reflection getting in the picture!

Bubblyfunk Di-Ro challenge

First of all, thanks for good wishes for our anniversary here and on forums etc. We managed to get to church this morning - to the church where we were married - met up with lots of friends who still go there - and mum was able to get there too. We then went out for lunch - here's a picture I took of John:

btw the wine glass looks bigger than it actually was irl!

We just relaxed this afternoon - and for quite a few hours I did nothing (even had a sleep which is very unusual for me during the daytime).

We have been very blessed to have enjoyed 17 years of marriage.

Eventually I did just a little bit of crafting:

On Bubblyfunk forum Rosie set a challenge: 'I'll set the first challenge with the colour theme of black and white to use the following:

Printed paper
Chipboard word

You can choose what you want to make.... a card, an altered item or a scrapbook page, but you MUST include these four items.'

So this is a very simple card, made with DCWV papers. (I'm not sure whether the chipboard word should be black and white - but I hadn't got one and I like the bit of colour it adds:

Thank you for stopping by and for the many lovely comments that are left for me - they are much appreciated.
