Hello


Hi there, just popping in to say "hello"!

I've seen some lovely stitching templates and such recently and thought I'd have a go myself. I started this by stitching the holes with green embroidery thread, but it all seemed too heavy, so I began again and this time just stuck to having the pierced holes in the card. I feel it adds detail without being too fussy. The top squares all come from a journalling card I had. I die cut the squares using the interesting parts of the card and then mounted them on to another die cut square in a contrasting colour.

Hope you're having a lovely weekend.

Debby
