Stitch - Sugar Nellie DT

Hello... late as usual!  I've completely reorganised the craft room today, thrown loads of stuff away, moved the furniture around (with Pav's help) and I now have a little desk for my sewing machine... I've had it for at least 2yrs, probably longer and haven't really got a clue how to use it lol, but I'm determined to learn.  And that'll be easier with a permanent place for it, instead of on the window sill gathering dust!  So expect to see some wonky stitching on my cards soon :o)

Today's card is for the Sugar Nellie blog, where we're showcasing Leanne Ellis stamps at the moment... I've used the very lovely Stitch.

Scalloped card blank - Craftwork Cards
Stamp - Sugar Nellie Stitch - Funky Kits
Colouring - copics & prisma pencils

Off for a commenting catch up... Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

Lovely card Lisa, love the image and fab layout. I bought a sewing machine in October last year and still haven't used it - it's been years since I sewed, so need to re-educate myself, you may see some wonky looking cushions on my blog very soon LOL. Have a lovely weekend. Hugs, Claire x
