Hello, thank you for stopping by my little corner of Blogland.
Unlike a lot of people down south we up here in the North East of Scotland are still getting cold weather. Yes!! the sun has been shining, it is dry but by great it is by no means warm.
Met Hazel this morning, she asked me to make a card to thank all you wonderful people for all your kind wishes. Having been given the "All Clear" on her visit to the hospital on Monday, she does not have to go back to see her Consultant till October. Hazel did say she had intended to log on to your Blogs to say Thank You. Just in case she missed someone she thought me posting a card for her would solve that problem.................so here it is.
Also an effort to get me out of my "Comfort Zone" just a little though, still had to use my Roses. I have made this ever so slightly "Shabby Chic"
Base card approx 5 x 7 Centura Pearl
Pink card stock slightly distressed using a distressing tool
Tiny Roses paper from a Tilda Paper Stack .....Country Escape. I attached it to the pink card stock by stitching it.
Piece of stripped paper from the same pad also stitched using a different stitch style
Card stock embossed using a SB Folder which had been inked on the inside of the folder. This was matted onto a piece of the pink card and aslo stitched using yet another style of stitch
A piece of lace from my Lace Box
Roses made using SB Blossom Five Die in each of the papers used
Leaves Crealis Die and Die cut bits from my box.
Tag cut using SB Tags Die set
I have entered this into the Sketch n Stash Challenge
I had never used a "sketch" till the other day, think I have got the hang of it, so that`s another.
Last year I bought a very small, cheap sewing machine from the Hobbycraft Shop. I was to use this for doing some sewing on cards rather than get out my BIG sewing machine......... I think it has been used twice. The description of the stitches on the little dial bares no resemblance to what it actually sews. Apart from the straight stitch all the rest were just what appeared when I turned the dial, so a bit of trial and error.
Thank you for calling by today, your visits and comments are always appreciated
Till next time
