It is mine and my boyfriends anniversary next week, and he is always commenting on the fact that I haven't stitched anything for him so I made this for him.
It is rather fitting for us, he is a big big horror fan (compared to him, I am only a moderate horror fan!) and I call him my monster. so. this is as cheesy as it gets for us.
I finished the hoop with black lace and a dark green trim, I think it really pulls it all together and brings a bit more interest to such simple stitching. Stitched entirely in back stitch, black thread between one and three strands depending on the thickness of the lines.
I am really happy with this and hope my boyfriend likes it!!

This is marvelous! I'm a huge fan of the monster and his bride and it's perfect for an anniversary present!  The detail is great and the trim totally brings it together! Bravo! (and Happy Anniversary!)

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Congrats on the anniversary! The stitching is fantastic and I'm loving the added trim around the frame.
