Here's the 20th Anniversary card I made for the Pres. Our big day is tomorrow.

 I used some old postcards I found with policemen on them and signed it from the Ol' Ball and Chain.

The words are sewn using my Bernina sewing machine with the quilting foot, the feed dogs lowered and the darning setting on.

Inside is a chain I made, a padlock I found down at the shore as well as a bottle opener that looks reminiscent of a key, which I got from a blacksmith at a festival one time when the Pres was deployed during our last duty station.

I am so glad God has kept us together all these years. I wouldn't want to spend them with anyone else. It is humbling. We aren't great. And we haven't always even been that great at being married. But God has shown us favor. In this we rejoice!

" are precious and honored in my sight..and I love you." Isaiah 43:4


  1. That is so great... I love it! You are so creative!! Thankful you've allowed the Lord to keep you and worked at being together... It's worth the fight! Love you and Happy Anniversary!!

  2. Thanks Lollie, and I bet you never would have guessed that the Love stamp on the front of the card was from you! You've sent me more of those particular stamps than anyone else and this one miraculously hadn't been postmarked. Somehow that made it better.
    love you.

  3. Happy Anniversary my friend!
    Love you!

  4. Thanks for stopping by, Crafty. It was a wonderful anniversary. We are following it with another day of celebration- why not? Strawberry pie that we never got around to last night for this morning's breakfast, and another special dinner tonight. It's going to be a great day. xo
