Just as well we've got the Cupcake Craft Challenge to put a little bit of sunshine into our Monday...the incredibly talented Jane has chosen this weeks theme of STITCHING but don't panic if you haven't go a sewing machine you could do the same as me and add some faux stitching...I actually couldn't be faffed to get my machine out and thread it all up...how lazy am I haha!

Hi Donna another gorgeous card and I love how neat you are with your faux stitching I always get my machine out because my stitching looks terrible if i do it with a pen lol

Donna, what a gorgeous color scheme you have here. I'm also loving the depth of the yarn with your highlighting; very clever! The flowers are wonderful - did you outline them because they match perfectly! Love the effect of the buttons! Love the faux stitching. I'm like you - too much trouble to sew a tiny bit with threading the machine and getting it from the closet. This is just as well isn't it? Love the eyelet lace - very chic! I hope you're in for better weather this coming weekend so you can enjoy it more. That's what summers are for, right? :)
