Card & up to date picture of cross stitch

This card is for my dear friend Linda who has got a new job - I am so thrilled for her because not only is she very talented at what she does and works hard but she deserves to go to work with a lot less early mornings and hassle.    SU paper and card, wild orchid buttons and an SU butterfly.  A celebrate button purchased some time ago and the half pearls around the SU congratulations  are also SU.
A little later than supposed to be, but here is the current progress on the Bothy Threads Cut Thru lighthouse (one of my most favourite things a lighthouse).  The back stitch really makes things come alive doesn't it.  I hope to finish the back stitch soon so I  can start page 2 of 9 - yup 9......

Off on a canal boat tomorrow for my Mum's birthday with my lovely sister, her hubby and my nephew and also my own hubby. 

Hope everyone is well.

  1. The card is beautiful and very gratefully received.

    The backstitch really does make the picture come to life and it's looking good already.

    Have a nice day tomorrow x
