"Cross Stitching"

Hello and welcome to my little corner of Blogland.
Today`s  card is one I took along for my cabinet at the Tearoom this morning.  I have sold a few House Mouse themed cards along there.
I was along at the Tearoom this morning doing an "Open Day" to let people see all the different kinds classes that are being held in the Craft Workshop.  I am tiered this evening, we were busy, after talking to people we have decided  not to start any serious Card Making classes till end of August.  Our schools go back then, all the Granny`s will be finished with childcare duties.  Holidays will be over and some mums will be free with their wee ones going off to school for the first time.

Base card Centura Pearl
Papers printed from a Rob Adam`s CD,  Printable Gingham, Polka Dot and Tartan Backing Papers.  I use that CD more than any just for those simple baking papers.
Did some quick Faux stitching
Image coloured with Promarkers, I added some Die Cut sewing bits.  Made little hanks of thread using some of my Cross Stitch Threads which are all DMC.  After I did that and they were well stuck I had this "Copyright" thought.......................I really think it should be OK.

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate that you take time to look at what I do and leave all your lovely comments.  I do read each and every one.
Bye, till next time
