Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge # 72...Stitching

Good morning all...I'm really pleased the weekend is here...I am in the mood for crafting and after I've stuffed my brekkie down I'm gonna get my stash out and play!

The weeks are zooming past and this week is the last challenge of February for Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge...this weeks theme is STITCHING which has been chosen by moi...I was supposed to use the sewing machine that was rescued from the loft and even though I read the manual 3 times on how to thread the thing...still it wouldn't work! Needless to say I've ended up doing faux stitching...grrrrrrrr! The girls have made some cracking cards this week so if you feel like being nosey...pop on over for a peek!

Hi Donna, I was hoping to leave a comment hours ago...but on the way back from shopping the car wheel spring snapped and puntured the tyre leaving us stranded waiting for the AA for hours....
I have not long sat down with a cuppa, dressing gown on and fire blazing to defrost

I just love this card Donna, I really love how you combine your papers and how you added the pearls to the flowers.

I am hoping to get a crop a dile from the NEC next month, after seeing one of your last cards I thought I would use up some of the eylets I have had stashed for ages....then after using them with an old spring setter remembered they didn't work so well and damaged the eyelets...

Gorgeous card Donna...and thanks for such a warm welcome to the team...

Oooh - pretty, very pretty - I just love your cards - I'm such a fan! The gingham is my favorite, especially paired with polka dots. Oh, how I love that border punch! The lace and pearls add elegance and the flowers add beauty to the ones you inked up so beautifully! What a beautiful card for Mother's Day! Hope you're having a scrumptious weekend! ;D
