Cards for Girls and Boys

Sadly, I don't have any more cross stitch to show you - and tease you with! - as I haven't managed to do any more since my last post. I can't believe that none of you have guessed what it is yet - I thought you would easily guess it (but then I suppose I have got the chart in front of me!!!)

So, the other day I made these two cards (I told you I couldn't just make one didn't I?!) using a sizzix die that I bought on Boxing Day and that I hadn't yet played with.

Then it occured to me that the design would also be perfect for a male birthday/greeting card - and let's be honest about how we all struggle with those(!) - if only I used blue/more masculine papers. So that's what I did! And it is! The die itself is a little fiddly to disassemble and then reassemble, so I just stuck it all down onto card then cut them out again, but I think the effort is worthwhile.

Alex had a great day today! She loved the new sixth form so fingers crossed that she gets the grades to get in there, and when we got home there was a message inviting her for an interview at the Restaurant in Moors Valley Country Park - tomorrow!
