Hi Crafty Bloggers
Wow the weather here has been so wonderful it definitely puts a spring in your step !! I treated myself to some new papers and they are so pretty !! I got them from Hobbycraft ( managed to drag my fella in with me after about 40 mins he lost the will to live !. I could have been in there for at least another hour lol) It was so nice to actually see them and match them up as I usually shop online. I decided to pick Hopscotch Magnolia for this one. Love this one just brings back so many memories . There is chalk all over the payment outside, the kids in the street have been having great fun !! I have coloured her softly with prismacolor pencils . I managed to get this made to enter TOMIC challenge No 8 which is stitching I have used real!!!
I made a criss cross card from a splitcoast stampers tutorial . It looks like an envelope with a card and I added a wee tag. Had to use up every inch of these papers ! I stitched the panels with my sewing machine without thread. I quite like the effect of the plain punched holes. I also machined stitched the panel onto the card . As an embellishment I machine stitched around the stamped moment sentiment on a different setting ! Lastly I made the flower with with sheer organza ribbon by sewing/ tacking it along one side and pulling the thread to ruffle to the centre. I popped this pebble brad to finish.
I think it's the lace that goes so well with these colours !!
I had great fun making this one. Hope you like it too!!
