Im still making cards!

I know I did tell myself I was going to scrap, but I just cannot get enough of Tickled Pink stamps !Perhaps I will use one, or two on a scrap book page, that should get me motivated!

In the mean time here is a card for the latest challenge (sewing) that I  made using one of the lovely stamps I was lucky enough to win in the Fabric challenge.


This sweet little image is called 
 Birthday:Cherrie


For this challenge there has to be sewing of some type, somewhere on your card.
I have sewn a vellum overlay over my background paper, which, by the way I downloaded from a gorgeous site called Bearly Mine.


I have added a little hand sewing in the way of swirls beside some of my flowers.


There is more sewing in this corner, some machine, some hand and even rub-on faux stitches.


I have sewn my centre pieces together on the machine using a floro orange, which I thought would be a fun contrast to the pink paper. The paper in the foreground is also from Bearly Mine


If you look very closely you may spot a little more stitching in amongst my layers. The tiny little rose buds are made out of paper.


I have carried the sewing theme through to the inside of my card as well.

Thanks for looking.

Now I really do need to get some scrapping done, not tonight though! Where O where does the time disappear to??

My Scrapping

Here is my finished latest painting

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
