ADD STITCHING

I certainly never imagined getting back to making cards was going to be so difficult! ... I'm taking hours to make a card as I just don't like anything I do, it is so frustrating... hope this fixes soon ha ha

Anyway, this is a card I managed to do, and it's my DT card for this week's Crafty Sentiments Challenge. For this week we want to see STITCHING on your projects and so for my card I added some faux stitching.



The image that I used is Dressing the Christmas Tree from this month's Crafty Sentiments release and the green background paper is also from Crafty Sentiments; striped one is from my stash.

I coloured the image with my promarkers, stars cut with my Die-Namics die, lovely ribbon from Debby.

I am entering my card in these challenges today.
- Simon Says Challenge - ANYTHING GOES
I Love Promarkers 74 - 1 RIBBON, 2 DP, 3 BUTTONS/BRADS/GEMS
- Bearly-Mine 14 - ANYTHING GOES
- Charisma 28 - IT'S IN THE STARS
- DYSU 28- SEW: Faux or Real
- Rainbow Lady's Challenge 161 - A STITCH IN TIME
- Creative Inspirations 120 - NO FLOWERS ALLOWED

Before I go I want to tell you about another release Crafty Sentiments are having this month on 21st July.. which is next Thursday. It is called HAPPY EVER AFTER. Doesn't Primrose look adorable... 


Well I decided to head off to the beach now, it is so hot here..  35C... a pool in our back yard would have been lovely today ...

By the way, I have picked up the winners of my candy on Monday, still two unclaimed.. is it you ?? AND I also got some exciting news now as well. My son just received the results of the O Level Exams and he passed all eleven subjects he sat for :)) Wooo hoooo .. we are all so happy and so pleased at the moment :)

Thank you for looking.
Hugs

This is so cute Dora and I so know what you mean even when I have a tiny break from crafting I find it difficult to do things I like which is why at the mo it is so hard with work and mess I just don't craft as much as I would like at all! Hope the filming has been going ok hugs Rebekah xx
