A stitch out of time

I thought I would have a go at a few challenges again this week so to start the week I'm going to enter the Try it on Tuesday challenge where the theme is more than one fold. I had a look in blogland for inspiration and was reminded of one of my favorite cards to make.

Yep the good old favorite with a sewing theme. This is a card to myself to remind me why fighting this battle with my thoughts.

I'm loving the colour combo too, Victorian rose and pumice stone with a touch of black soot to bring it all together.

So I'm going to enter the Try it in Tuesday challenge and enter it for their DT call. I thought it would be a nice gentle way to get me back into the swing of things. Wish me luck

The birds and the beads

I've been working in miniature this week, did some tiny things with Lavinia stamps and now used a little set I bought months ago and just inked up for the first time.

I made it for a challenge which was to use beads, but now I can't remember which challenge it was or even if it is a current challenge. Really I ought to be locked up, I'm dangerous! Oops I forgot, I already am lol. It's a miniature exploding box, all of 4 cm square.

I've loved playing around with such small stamps, think I'll use them tomorrow to make a few cards. Off to have a look for the challenge blog so I can enter.

Bye for Now

Ha! Not found the challenge I was looking for but the Simon Says Monday Challenge is winged things so here goes!

Now I've remembered why I was messing with beads! Try it on Tuesday also have beads as their challenge. It's hard to believe that Janet and I started this challenge so long ago and it's still going strong . They have a dt call out at the moment. Now I wonder.........

A little frippery

Just a quicky today. I was given three sets of crafters companion cd's a couple of weeks ago and amongst them was a lovely set of tiny stamps which caught my eye so promptly got them out to play with.

Aren't they sweet? Loved stamping and colouring them to create miniature masterboards and that little heart stamp is delightful. They made me smile while I was making them and make me smile now they are finished!

Hope you're smiling too
