Why I havent made many cards recently!

I've been very busy trying to finish this cross stitch piece, which is now finally done, Ta Dah!! I must admit it's the hardest thing I've done so far, lots of half stitches, combined colours, I almost needed a degree to dechiper the pattern! I took it on for my auntie, as I encouraged her to try it and as she's not a regular cross stitcher she found it a bit much to cope with, I do hope she's pleased with it!

MSE Christmas Challenge

Here's my card for the MSE Christmas challenge! I've used Papermania papers, a Daisy stamp and greeting that was free with the latest issue of Docrafts, and my shiny new nestabilities for the first time! I love them and will definitely be getting more sets :D
