Items available from The Stamp Basket
I really wanted to start stitching on some of my cards, but me and the sewing machine don't get on - I did have another go with it a couple of days ago, but I couldn't even thread the blimmin' thing lol. So I decided to have a go at hand-stitching on today's card, and I'm quite pleased with it really :o) Maybe one day I'll work the sewing machine out, but at least I can do it this way until then!
I've coloured Tilda with promarkers and flexmarkers, sentiment is Pink Petticoat, flowers and 'gems on a wire' thingy are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I found my bow maker while I was looking for something else, so I had a go at a double bow, and added a charm from my stash - I've got LOADS of charms but hardly ever think to use them. Butterflies cut with Kars punches and everything else is from The Stamp Basket.
I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
- Cute Card Thursday - anything goes
- Simon Says Stamp - bingo (I chose charms, punches/ die cuts, ribbon/ twine)
- Crafts and Me - light airy spring colours
- Papertake Weekly - bingo (I chose flowers, punched shapes & lace)
- Simply Magnolia - anything goes
What a day we've had today! We had a hospital appointment early morning for Dex and his ongoing food issues, and I'd been all organised and arranged for Morgan to go the breakfast club at school so we weren't rushing around. Just before we were due to set off we had a phone call from school to say Morgan was burning up and coughing, and they needed us to pick him up... agh!! So we had to take him to the appointment with us, poor thing being dragged around when he didn't feel well. And Dex's appointment was... interesting... as usual! Funny how you can be feeling fine about things until the docs start - he's been eating so much better, and eats just about anything nursery give him, but apparently his weight hasn't changed for months, although he's getting taller. So now he's been referred for blood tests, just to rule any other issues out. More worry! I'm sure he's fine though - he looks ok... ah well, we'll just have to wait and see. Sorry, I'm waffling - better get this posted as I'm so late!
