Adoption Card

Hello, it's been a while since I posted anything but I'm happy to report that I had a successful trip to the NEC with my friend in November and now have many more crafty bits to play with!

She has been trying to persuade me for some time to enter some challenges.  I have had a couple of days off work and have finally got round to having a go.

Another friend is adopting a little boy next month and I wanted to make a card to congratulate her on her new addition to her family.

I found this cross stitch pattern for Tigger in my stash and stitched him yesterday.  I used silver mirror board and star paper from a Create and Craft Club pack to frame him.  I stitched a sentiment and framed that too.  I found a couple of little teddies in my stash and added them down the side.

I cant tell you all how proud I am that I've finally made something that I can enter into some challenges!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

I hope to be back soon with another card to share with you all!
