Morning Post BFF

I've had a bit of a mojo freeze the last few days.  I saw the challenge on Saturday for Less is More which has a theme of Friends, and my mind went blank.  It's not a hard theme and I'm sure they have loads of entries already but it seems to have given me a mental block. 

So this is what I've been working on the for the last couple of days!  I know it doesn't look a lot but I am very pleased with the end result, just took a long time to get here.  

I started with a Whisper White base.  I added a Sahara Sand panel with an embossed row of cross stitching.  This is one of two new embossing folders from the Spring/Summer catalogue called Needlepoint Border.  They'll match up with the stamp set Hoop La La in the main catalogue brilliantly.  

I stamped my letters from Morning Post in Pacific Point using my Stamp-a-Ma-Jig to line them up.  Now I have to say at this point I spent ages lining my letters up.  Here's my first attempt -

Aren't those letters beautifully lined up?  But you'll have spotted the mistake.  Yep two B's and 1 F!! Doh!  Deep breath start again and the result is on the top card.  Lesson learned when trying to spell don't get too engrossed in the Great British Bakeoff!  It's the only reason I can think of for my mistake but I may still rescue this with a Best Buds Forever.  After all they are lined up brilliantly and it would be a shame to waste it.................

The hand is part of the stamp set and there are two so you can point in any direction.  I added "to my" from For My Family stamp set and snipped the ends into a ribbon banner.  

I think this could suit a variety of reasons - birthday, thank you even a valentine's. 

My son is quite put out.  5,000 schools closed but his isn't and we have snow!  Life is so unfair isn't it?

A big welcome to Shawn, thanks for joining my little blog.  Hope to see you visiting often. 

I hope all is well with you.  Remember to pop back tomorrow for the start of SALE-A-BRATION.  It's going to be so exciting!! xx
