It's extremely satisfying!
Thank you Toni ^_^
More pics later...
I saw some superb looming wool in Ipikin, in Much Wenlock. It's a beautiful wool shop, absolutely crammed with different kinds of wool, I cant find a website for it though, but i'll keep looking :)

I used this layout (exactly) the other day for a card, but made two of them so I could use it with a different topper later on. It's part of my effort to work faster and better ;)
*I took a few clip art images ( microsoft) and combined them, and recoloured them, to form the picture. I should have started it from scratch myself, but this was far faster.
Followed a template I purchased a while ago. Just drew around the pieces.
The bright pink inner layer is made with a felt pen base and then inks dabbed over the top. It was nice to stamp onto it in black.
I like to have a go at the suggestions in the crafty mags, it pushes me to make something different and learn how to do something new :)
The flowers are made of tiny flower shaped buttons that I purchased eons ago, and have never found the right project for.

I did enjoy doing the white embossing on the dark green background colour, and it was great to find a use for a home made button!!!! ^_^
The teacher was male, so I did struggle a bit to think what embellishments are always fine for men.
Suggestions and Comments welcome ;)
Petals, leaves, etc individually cut from what I think is a K & Co 12x12 paper.
Nestability scalloped frame around the cross stitch, the shading on the title is in pencil, I couldn't think of a better way to do it at the time :)
