My Folks Card..

Hi Everyone,

Im here today withthe card I made for Mum and Dads Christmas.  I decided to make a cross stitch one for them once again.  I had started one but was having issues followingthe pattern so one day while in the shop I saw this in a magazine and thought it would be much easier..... Errr my wonky brain still got mixed up so its similar to the pattern but not perfect!! (Bit like me!!!)

I added lots of sparkle to the card. It was just plain white stars but I added the glitter!! Cant have a festive card with out a wee bit of it!!

Love and Sparkles,

Hazel xx

Beautiful card. Love the sparkle. For us cross stitchers we know what it's like when we skip just one little itty bitty square. Eek! This turned out beautifully and they will love it. [Bunny]
