Let's get sewing


Another sewing themed card today, this one for my stall for Mother's Day.  I have my Mum's card half made so I will share that with you on Mother's Day. For this one I used a Hobby House topper and LOTV Dress Shoppe papers. The tape measure ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons. I don't like naked buttons unless thy are very tiny so I sewed them with baker's twine which I also wound around the wooden bobbin. The sentiment is from a very useful occasions set by Stamposaurus.

Challenges
The Ribbon Girl any image
Crafting from the heart anything goes
Simon Says anything goes 
Inky Chicks ribbon or lace
Winter Wonderland must use a sentiment

Looking forward to be treated to lunch out today by some very good friends. They went to Florida for the first time in Jan/Feb and we worked out all their itinerary for them, including booking some meals and rides at the Disney Parks. They were so grateful and followed it apart from the day they got lost putting in the wrong info for Kennedy Space Centre. Luckily we had left them a free day towards the end so they managed to get there the second time they tried. Time for some crafting first today.  Enjoy your Sunday whatever you are doing.
