Happy 50th with Angela

Hi there!  by the time you are reading this I am convalescing in hospital! finally having my knee surgery and stitching away a few more of these.  How awesome are they!!!  The shop has two you can use, Paper Smooches cross stitch die ( the one I have) and MFT cross stitch tag Die The possibilities are endless and I have taken my floss and needles with me and a few already die cut, so stay tuned!!  hopefully I will have some down time....... really very easy and there are so so many stitches you can use.  If you do not know how, YOUTUBE is your friend.  Jennifer McGuire also has a few videos too, which are brilliant too.

loved making this card for a special friend's milestone birthday. it is something that you can pick up if you're waiting and can do a couple of stitches.... it is very therapudic :)

*using embroidery floss cross stitch is various  colours (if you are unfamiliar with how to do these stitches I watched a few youtube videos and went to Lindcraft :)
*Die cut Pink and Main sentiment in Red cardstock and Die cut Shadow in vellum
* die cut number sentiment using MFT numbers
*Adhere to cross stitch using glossy accents ( I covered with a magazine and left for a little while) 
* Die cut red cardstock  and adhere to base card suing foam dots
