A Stitched Thank You

Hello All,

Well, I am slightly broke, the combo of there being so many good offers on C&C and the fact I got round to downloading the app ... so I can still have a sneeky wee look at what is going on even though my daughter is watching cbeebies!!! .... I got a couple of tools from WRMK and some HOTP kits .... Just waiting for them to arrive so I can play.

Over the past few days, I have been pushing myself out of my comfort zone .... It seems that I am incapable of making a card unless it has a stamped and coloured image on it ... yet whilst I scour blogland there are so many styles of cards that I love. I love sewing themed cards, sewing was a 1st love ... I am so impressed by cards that have so many elements and details,but they all work perfectly together, I am not sure I have achieved that, and I am not sure the layout is right, but I did enjoy having a play.

All the stamps came free on a magazine that I bought forever ago, and never got round to playing with. All the papers are " Tilda - Kitchen Garden" 

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

Just Inspirational - Wood/Fabric
Every Body Art Challenge - Anything Goes
A Random Fan - Show us your Springy Colours
As You Like It - Fav style of Stitching (Faux for me it goes on every card I make, I think it just really finshes a card off )
Crafty Girls - Anything Goes
Sister Act - Anything Goes
Open Minded Crafting - ( I have chosen the option of Spring Colours )
613 Avenue - Anything Goes
Pixies Snippit Playground

I would also like to say thank you to the girls at 613 Avenue for choosing me to be in their top 3 last week, I feel very honoured!!

Thanks for looking
Hugs Juls
