Stitch In Time


Well we had a super time in Yorkshire - we went to 'Eureka' and H absolutely loved it and wants to know when can he go again !!, we went shopping at the outlet mall and i bought a few things in M & S including a linen jacket was originally £59 and had been reduced to £35, then when i got to the checkout, it had another 20% off, yipee and we met up with some friends for lunch in Halifax.  We didn't have enough time for me to visit LOTV shop this time, but we are up again at the beginning of August, so i will check out the classes, see if i fancy doing one and if i do then i will book myself on one.

I would just like to say a huge thank you for all the fabby comments, you all left me, for my last card 'Sailing Boat', i have never had so many and it really means a lot to me.

When i saw the 'Sew Special' Challenge at Penny Black At Allsorts, i knew that the stamp i must use is this one, the papers (and sentiment) came free with 'Creative Cardmaking' and they are a 'Nitwit' design ( i think the magazine dates back a couple of years) - i've put glossy accents on all the centres of the white flowers, thimble button is from 'Craftime - Sewing Room' and the twine is from my stash.

Today's Card And Challenges Are :

Penny Black At Allsorts  - where May's Challenge is 'Sew Special'

The Ribbon Girls - where May's Card Challenge is ' Add A Button'

Penny Black Saturday Challenge  - where May's Challenge is 'Anything Goes'

Papertake Weekly - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes'

Cupcake Craft - where Challenge No: 214 is 'Sketcharific'
