so, i have no idea if this will work.  

i made this card recently for my friend's birthday back in england (i moved to australia this year).  he's a total gaming freak.  

i made it from a random tetris screenshot i found on google, pasted it into an excel square grid and mapped it out!  the squares were perfect for x-stitching.
so, if it loads, here's the picture below!  if not, oops and i'll try again :-s


below is the image i used to create the cross-stitch.  i actually then turned every square into four as it was going to be tiny, i was using 14 count aida.

I don't do cross stitch, but I might if I had a pattern this cool.  I love tetris, too.  Nice work.

basic image pattern is now included in the first post.  i just put an image into excel, made it 50% transparent, then turned the grid lines black so it made its own grid.
