The designs

I've been pecking at the giveaway card ideas. The suggestions were very helpful, it has inspired me to try a handful of new designs. I have two of the lovely blue ones stitched. Tried two different techniques- my fiance likes one, his mother likes the other. Thats the funny thing about taste!

The first design:

The second design:
I used smaller stitches for the first design, a more delicate technique.
For the second, I used a lazy daisy stitch with looser, fuller stitches. I have yet to create a card of these, but I have to say that it has been enjoyable.

I am also working on Calla lillies:The cross stitch was an after thought. I didn't like the white lilies on the Aida, so I'm stitching on some contrast. Ought to be done soon and then the giveaway can begin properly!

Let me know if you have any thoughts.
