A STITCH IN TIME!!



Hello Everyone...

What a beautiful day we had today, with the promises of cold southerly winds and rain...well, that came to nothing, as it all happened through the night and puffed itself out, so I was a happy camper.

Today I have a card to share with you for a challenge at CRAFTY EMBLIES ...with the theme....

                                                  THE DRESSMAKER....

 
I had all the little sewing bits and pieces, but no image that I wanted to use, so went searching on the net, and found this beautitful dress, being designed and made, for the one and only, Cinderella, by her cute little forest friends.
 
 



There is a close up of the dress, coloured with pencils and a glitter collar....

The gorgeous papers were are patch work paper with buttons and blocks of pale colours, but no idea where it came from..



There is better view of the papers, as the front sort of got covered up..but cute little cotton reels, and a needle, which I added the thread to, and a tape measure, and thimble..such cute little embellishments.

Finished with a pink ribbon....

While I'm here have you seen whats up at CRAFTY SENTIMENTS DESIGNS 



Thats it...next week I have a huge DT week with posts nearly every day sometimes 3 a day..didn't sort those dates out very well, did I ..lol..hope you are having a fabulous weekend, mine is winding down, it is Sunday evening and time to put my feet up and hit the chocolates...see you tomorrow..

Luv CHRISSYxx

How sweet! This actually makes me think of December 24. We would watch a TV program where they show just parts of different Disney cartoons, and from Cinderella they always showed the part where the animals make her dress. I think you added such nice details to this card, fit for the sewing/dress making theme.

Molecraft said...

What a perfect image for that theme Chrissy and your embellies are just fab!
