Happy Anniversary

When I saw this sketch at
I kinda scratched my head.

Have a look...

But I kept thinking, and thinking,
and thinking....

And I did come up with something!

I used some of Jack's watercolor designs.

He does love to watercolor!

The sun element is a stitched circle embossed with Lil' Inker's Stitched Circle Die.

The hammock is the twig.

The trees are the birds.

And I threw a little heart in there for good measure.

I'll give this to DH for our anniversary.

He'll love that Jack's artwork is on it!

And we've been watching a family of bluebirds in our yard.

Here's my sidekick at work.

He really gets into it!

Thanks for stopping by.
