The theme is get inky and / or painty, as I am no good at either of those, I chose 3 stamped  little images  using Kan Ban Stamps, and used water colour pencils, then glittered to try and hide the rough edges. So there is a little painty going on but as much as I dare.

New Card Design

Trying out a new card design I made on my Silhouette, I then added some Spirelli and Decoupage as a topper. I left the toppers sentiment space free so it could suit most occasions.

More Stitching

Here I have combined hand stitching onto card with machine embroidery. The card is a trapeze style card, where the hand stitching actually holds the centre piece in. I love making these cards, although they take a while I can sit and get lost in my stitching.
I am going to enter this card in:

Wanted to Share

As most of you know I am a keen machine embroiderer, so wanted to share one of my latest little bits with you. My daughter got married on 24 August so I made her this ring cushion as she had a black white themed wedding.
I am showing this on in the hope it inspires some others out there.

A Week Off

After having a week off from crafting, well serious crafting, because I had my grandson to stay, so all I could do was in his words "cards for my mum and dad and brothers". I am raring to get my hands moving again, this week on it's "No Sentiment" so this little black and white number fits the bill.
It was a kit I bought ages back on QVC that never got used as I am not into kits, but sorting through my craft things for old things my grandson could play around with I found it. So I licked and sticked while he embossed and painted.

Thought I would try this pearlised card to print onto, not sure if I like the outcome as everything looks dull. But hey that's me, takes me ages to get into new things.
This week on it's "spread a little joy and love" so this is my take on it.
I will also enter this in as every month it's "anything goes Christmas" I always mean to enter then forget. So before I forget again I am off to enter it.
