My summer blog hop postcard :)

Hi every one :0)
I am participating in Jo 's  summer-postcard-blog-hop and my postcard arrived today ....
a beautifully stitched card too 






 and written on the back was this message :)



"My husbands grandmother will be 89 years old in a few months and is
very religious.  As a Christmas present I cross stitched a cross made out of flowers.  I was so excited as it took me 2 years to finish it (had 2 babies within 14 months -- so it was rare for me to find time to stitch).   When she opened the gift she held it up - but it was upside down and she said to me "that's beautiful..but what is it supposed to be.."  we were all cracking up it was definitely a Christmas to remember. :)"

Thank you soo much for sending me this lovely card ... mine is on its way to its final destination .... pop over to Jo's blog to find out where I have sent mine to .... 

will be back tomorrow with up date on how my first week has gone at work :)

take care and happy stitching :) love mouse xxxxx
