Hi to you all

Hiding in my craft room while the work is being done on the kitchen for my second card I have done one of my top 5 crafts and that is stitching for real by hand I just love doing the stitching and I have used a old template I have not used for a while

To make the card I have used 3 yellow and blue patterned papers one with words on one with feet on and one striped I have used cream paper to cut the shape and stitch on with blue thread
I have used a sentiment and some ribbon for a bow I have used my x cut letter dies for the word baby  I have used some edged stickers around the edges
