Crafty Creations # 55 - Stitching.....


Good morning everyone!

My card today is for the latest Crafty Creations Challenge which has the theme of stitching..... in my case this comes as the faux variety because I'm useless with a sewing machine and have given up trying, lol! I cased the layout on this card from a beautiful card I spotted on Sandra's blog here way back last May!!! I'm a huge admirer of Sandra's cards and the way she put this one together blew me away..... so I made a note of where I'd seen it knowing that one day I'd use it to inspire me!

The image is of course Edwin Chasing Butterflies by Magnolia, coloured with Poly pencils. The gorgeous papers are from a Cosmo Cricket collection and I just punched out some mini butterflies to add and left it at that for once!

I recently ordered my tickets for the NEC show in March and I have to say it's fast approaching now and I'm very excited...... and hoping to see lots of familiar faces there maybe? Just wish there were a few more pennies in my money box right now, lol!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
