Sew Beautiful


I broke into the gorgeous new Fancy Pants collection 'Baby Mine' last week. It is just so pretty and I love all the bits and pieces to go with the gorgeous double sided papers.

I played along with the card designers at The Studio this weekend.
I was dying to play with the new goodies so it was an excuse to make this.

Amanda's card challenge this week is to make a card and include stitching/Sewing/weaving.
I hand stitched around the patterened papers, handmade leaves and weaved the same embroidery floss in and out of the matching doilee. I love these delicate doilees, So Cute!

I also used one of the Baby Mine stickers, buttons, and the 'new arrival' rub on from Baby Mine.
And inside I added this.
If you would like to see the other cards at The Studio, visit here and upload your card too.

It's a rainy day today. One of those days where you take the kids to school and have to change your jeans when you get home as they are so wet around your ankles. I hate that!!

A quiet one today for me. Lots of work to get on with, Louis is out after school, Ade is out watching Peter Kay at the O2 tonight and Hollie wants to make her own pastry after school and make pasties. Baking seems to be her only interest lately. She's going through a phase where she just mopes. It drives me mad.
She refuses to read these days, so last night I gave her a couple of good cook books to take to bed and this seems to have worked. I went up a while later to turn out lights and she'd found a pastie recipe to try and decided this week to give choux pastry a go too.
Maybe I have a little pastry cehf on my hands???
I'm going with it anyway, whilst she has an interest at the moment.

Enjoy your Monday xxx
