Patchwork Tilda

 Here's one that I'd forgotten about, a card made for my lovely Sister-in-law a few weeks ago. I bought these papers with her in mind as she's a real whiz on the sewing machine, would love to have her skill!
She made a beautiful patchwork throw a while back  and that's what inspired my card.

The Tilda 12x12 pad has a couple of pages of die cuts so I decoupaged using two of the sewing machines. I even threaded the bobbin and added a snippet of cotton fabric and some ricrac to give the impression of it being mid sew and made a tape end to add to my tape measure ribbon where I tucked in the sentiment.
  Then you know me, sometimes bunting is the only way to go lol!

Like A Record Baby!

It's time for a new challenge at Southern Girls and the theme this time is
so circles will do nicely thank you very much ;)

The image that I have used is called "Hooter Framed" By Dillybeans, one of the sponsors for this challenge. Please check out the challenge blog for full details of all of the sponsors this time.

The image actually has a fab doodled frame but unfortunately, I didn't think it through properly when I chose this image for the theme, the frame is actually square. I just fussy cut all of the flowers from the frame to add to my design instead.

EFCB57, Birthday,
BM July, Digital,
CAM149, Wings,

Summer Colours With Lavinia

Morning, it's time for a new theme at Lavinia Stamps Challenge.

This time the theme is 
and if you fancy inking up your Lavinia Stamps and joining the challenge this time, you could be in with a chance of winning the £40 voucher on offer!

Not a lot to tell you about today's cards,

 Just some masking, inking and stamping for the first card and some inking,stamping and glittering for the second. Oh, except for the sentiment, for these, I print off whole sheets of A4 card at a time, copying and pasting various sentiments making sure to leave plenty of space between each one so that I can either die cut them or hand cut then I've always got them to hand, It's as easy as that!

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
CAS79, Bright Colours,
SH365, Summer Brights,
Sketch Saturday 316, Sketch used for second card.
