Happy Birthday!

Hi, there!

Hope your day is going well on this fine Thursday afternoon!  I'm just popping in quick to share with you a tag I made for a friend for her birthday!  I haven't done cross stitch in ages, but it was very relaxing and fun!  I used some of her favorite colors and added balloons from Paper Sweeties.  The cross stitch panel is from MFT.   And, I followed the owl pattern on a card made by Stephanie Klauck.  Ribbon to finish the tag.  And, here is my tag...



Well, time to scoot.  I picked up some fresh strawberries yesterday  and made short cake, so dessert with the strawberries was very yummy.  Now it's time to take some strawberries to a friend.  Thanks so much for dropping by!  Have a wonderful day!

Hugs,
Maria

  1. I did die cut the MFT cross stitch tag, but it's just sitting on my table still! You've inspired me to actually do the stitching--if I can remember how to do it! Your friend will love this wonderful tag--love how you added the balloons, Maria!

  8. This card is really fun and pretty. I used to do a little cross stitch but about 14 years ago, I moved in with my partner an I complained that the lighting in the house was too dim to stitch in. Silly me didn't realise that it wasn't the lighting , it was the descent towards reading glasses! boohoo.
