New Birthday Card

I bought a card making magazine and it had a load of freebies in it and design tips to make some cards with the freebies.
So here is one of my finnished cards i made with the freebies.
I like this card apart from the ribbon being wonky lol.
But other thank that its nice.

Progress so far on Noah's Ark

Here is my progress so far, i would have done it block by block but i dont have all the threads so i had to do bits i had the threads for lol.
Im quite pleased with it so far.
It should have been stitched on white aida but i did not have any lol, so i used baby blue.
Im looking forward to getting more threads and seeing it progress.
Thanks for looking :)

Noah's Ark Sampler for my sisters new baby.

Here is the picture of what the finnished sampler should look like. I really like this chart because i think it is very colourful and hopefully it will look nice in the babies bedroom.
I have 4 months to finnish it in time for when the baby gets here.
Lets hope i can get it done in time :)

Welcome to my Blog.

I thought i would start by introducing myself and telling you all a bit about me.

My name is Leah i am 21 years old and i live in Cornwall with my boyfriend Martin who i have been with for nearly 4 years.

We met while we were working in France as Campsite Courier's.

I previously lived in Norfolk with my parents, brother and sister.

I have 5 nieces and nephews and another one on the way.

My hobbies include Card Making and Cross Stitch. I would eventually like to start scrapbooking but i will take one step at a time lol.

I have been Cross Stitching for about 10 years now and i still love it. I am currently stitching bits and bobs for charity and i have just started a sampler for my sister's new baby. Its Noah's Ark and i hope she will like it.

My favourite cross stitch has to be any of the designs from the Bothy Threads Cut Thru series.

I have just recently started Card Making and i love it, everytime i learn a new technique there always seems to be another pop up out of nowhere. At the moment i am enjoying stamping, decoupage and embossing. I also enjoy quilling and i am looking forward to being able to create some different flowers etc.

Well thats enough about me.
