A Stitch In Time ,,,,, :-)

Hi all :-) I hope you are all well :-)

Another Tuesay has whizzed around and it is time for a new theme over on the Papertake Weekly Challenge :-)

A STITCH IN TIME ,,,,, real or fake ,,,OR both :-)

I just had to used this new Gruffie sewing for his little lamb friend, sew cute :-) This is from an unmounted set from Joanna Sheen. I coloured with Copics and then used prismacolor pencils too. The papers are from a My Minds Eye, On the Bright Side pack which I thought were perfect for this challenge ,,, faux sewing ,, :-) I used some red SU card for layering ( from Mandi) and added a few red buttons which were threaded with button twine from The Ribbon Girl, I wrapped the image panel with a red felt scarf , added a few Robins Nest Dew Drops and the sentiment is from a Hero Arts clear set.

We are sponsored by our lovely teamies Mary and Andrea aka The Ribbon Girl and they will be giving a fab pack of ribbons to one lucky girlie ( or boy ! ) :-)

oh gosh this makes me feel so guilty, although the son has informed me he has now threaded my new 6 month old sewing machine so I really should use it, especially as it makes your card so stunning and fabulous image choice too, so inspirational (I know this weekend maybe)
Hugs Kate xx
