Cross stitch bookmarks

I made these for my grandmother and sis-in-law for Christmas a few years ago.  They were super fun and super fast to do.  The dove one was also the first time I did a lazy-daisy stitch (it's the leaves on the branch the dove is holding) and I was so happy that it turned out so pretty.  The 'April' one had so much backstitching that I thought I might die!  Lol!  But it turned out well, and I went back later and stitched over the April again to make it stand out more and forgot to re-take the pictures (*sigh* oh well).  The butterfly one is my all-time favorite piece that I've done to date; it just looks so amazing and complete and pretty!
