Happy 50th Anniversary

On Saturday, the 11th, my friend Rita and her hubby celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. I wanted to make something that they would both like so I thought of this banner. I printed a picture of them on printable fabric. I then embroidered their wedding date on the left side of the pic and the 50 year date on right side. I embroidered Happy 5oth Anniversary on the top of the signature part of the banner. Their favorite colors are blue, purple and cream so I incorporated those. Then I had to get some gold in there so I used that for the lettering. Both of them are interested in the Civil War so the backing fabric has scenes on it from the 1800's which are printed in purple. I had two pigma pens attached with ribbons for the guests to use to sign the banner. They both seemed to like it so I am happy:)

I forgot to take a picture of it before we left so I had my hubby take a picture of me holding it with Rita. Rita has a great sense of humor and just as my hubby is about to take the photo she decides to tell a joke which breaks me up. We had great fun that day. Congratulations Rita and John!
