Hi everyone, apologies for the delay since my last post, I have been very busy helping my husband landscape the front garden, I have found muscles I did not know I had! We decided to remove a small picket fence and replace it with a pretty hedge, it looks much nicer now but obviously I had no time to spend in my craft room.
Speaking of my new craft room, I still have not had the chance to finish off the painting touch ups that needed doing after the fitting out took place, I also need to get some curtains and a new chair, when I have done that I can than show you the final results. I am undecided whether to make curtains or buy them, the windows are not too large so it would be quite easy to run up some window treatments but I need to have a good look around for fabric and see if I can find anything suitable.
Whilst sorting my craft room I came across these Marie Antoinette gift tags, I purchased the gift tag image from an Etsy shop (can't remember which one) and trimmed them with pretty pink ribbon, I also made a thankyou card with one of the images and sprinkled glitter on the card and the gift tags, they look really sparkly but the photo does not really show them at their best.
The gift card.
Please note - my cross stitch blogs name will not be on the original card!
All wrapped in a cello bag ready to send.

It looks a bit crumpled because I forgot to iron it.
I have made some pretty lace effect digital bookmarks, I will post them on Friday for you to download.
Hopefully I will also have the next cat in the mini series ready, it is a summer cat to add to your collection.
