Toms 15th Birthday!!!!

 Hi Everyone,

Golly what a week Ive had!!! I decided last Saturday to do a cross stitch card for Toms birthday today!!! Found this one and had to get it. Never really thought about how much work it would be!!! All done with 12 hours left!!!! 
 Tom is a huge Doctor Who fan and initially I wanted just the who logo but when I saw this pattern with the Second Doctor and his Companions I had to have it for him. Patrick Troughton is his fav doc!!! So for the Geeky of us the wee people are (From left to right) The Doctor, Polly, Ben, Jamie, Victoria, Zoe and the Brigadier.  Toms fav companion is Jamie and hes met Fraser Hines who played him a few times. 
Cross stitch Pattern is from this Etsy Shop. Fan Girl Stitches.  

Thanks for dropping by ,

Love and Sparkles, and some of Toms Birthday Cake,

Golden Wedding Card...

 Hi Folks,

Yesterday was a very special day for my Mum and Dad. It was their 50th Wedding Anniversary!!!
How amazing is that!!!!!
I stitched my card for them as I wanted it to be somethingthey could keep. I bought a frame for it and a mount so after its been on the mantlepiece as a card it can go on the wall.

Thanks for dropping by my wee bit of blogland,

Love and Sparkles,
