Special commission

My mother-in-law asked me to make her friend a 90th birthday card, her friend really enjoys knitting so that was the remit.  I remembered I had a set of stamps which I'd bought from Paperbabe Stamps many moons ago.  The set is called Design A Knit and I used two of the stamps to create the stocking stitch background using Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight ink pads from SU.  The image stamp is from a retired SU stamp which I also thought very appropriate.  I knitted my own embellishment and used cocktails sticks for the needles and some thick bakers twine for the yarn.  A coiple of beads added to make sure the thread doesn't come off.

I hope my MIL likes it and I hope her friend does too and that she also has a wonderful birthday.
