x......

Last two letters of the  Craft Barn Alphabet Challenge i and x. " i" had so many entries in my old dictionary so I went with x first(only one page).  A word I didn't know (there were quite a few) "xylograph" which means a wood engraving,  I have two Indian wood block so I used them on he background and then I copied the wood engraving from the wikipedia entry. Found some paper that looked a bit woodlike for the word.  That has been one of the things I have loved about this challenge is finding a use for things that I have had for years.

and with tag
