Hello Everyone,

Feels like forever that I have posted, but I have been really busy doing stuff, and will share later, but today I'm sharing this card.

Well.. not the singer you thought, but the sewing machine kind.

Bit of a side view going on there.

Going to enter this one in a challenge at Simon Says Stamp  and they want to see stitching, and thank goodness they added Faux, because my sewing machine said to me, if you sew with me after you have glued stuff then I ..will not.. play. So faux stitching for me.
Papers are Kaisercraft " Le Chateau Collection", and the numbered bit I trimmed off "Life of the party" from Basic grey, as it looked like a tape measure.
Both images are from Laura HERE and are freebies, very cool, few buttons from my vast collection, thanks to a lot of eldery clients, who save them all for me.Coloured with pencils, bit of ric rac and a flower from Prima.

Thats me today, I still have a few things to do, then I can play, as today and tomorrow its just...
 'Me and the dog'

I may pop something else up later if I get my organised chaos sorted

Welcome to my new follower, thanks you so much for joining me, and thank you to all, for your wonderful comments you leave me.
