The theme on the PFP challenge this week is for needles and pins, so I made this wee sewing themed birthday card. The Magnolia challenge is 'pretty in pink' so I can enter it there as well. Then the CCT challenge is 'a stitch in time' and I have followed this weeks Friday sketch challenge sketch - so it fits in to quite a few challenges! The Magnolia image was coloured using Promarkers and Flexmarkers, the ribbon came from Mei Flower and the paper is from a Prima pad that came free with 'Simply cards and Papercrafts.' The sentiment stamp is from a retired SU set and the flowers and leaves were made using punches. I think I would need to practice sewing on card - the machine doesn't grip the card as well as it grips fabric, so its more difficult to keep it straight and even!
I'm a part time teacher, married for over 23 years and Mum to Hannah and Nathan. I dabble in most crafts and have been making cards for about 15 years now. I'm a big fan of Stampin Up, Lili of the Valley and Magnolia products. I also make wedding stationery and sell my cards in a local craft shop to help school funds.
