Quick Wedding or Anniversary Gift


Our  good friends renewed their vows last year for their anniversary.  We were invited to the "wedding"  it was a lot of fun because it was actually a surprise to the wife - she had discussed this with her husband but they never finalized the plans.  He asked her to marry her and we were there for this fun event.  I wanted to make something special for them but I hadn't had my Cricut for very long so I needed something somewhat simple.  This is what I made for The Coopers
 I found a clear frame and used vinyl lettering between the two piecec of glass to create this sign for them. I finished it off with a matching ribbon. I think it is very simple but very pretty.  This was a year ago and I still haven't found the time to create one for our house - I think we need one too.
