One stitch at a time...

Morning Everyone! Can't believe we are already in October, the 3rd at that! This year has gone by so quickly! Nadine has settled into uni quite nicely and is really enjoying it, despite having the dreaded Fresher's Flu! I think her muscles are protesting with all the dance and technique classes she is doing, but she is loving it! Johnathan only starts next Monday, and this will be his last year, so I really hope he makes the most of it!

My card today is the one for my Sister-in-law whose birthday it was on Sunday. I have used neutral colours again, which I love, and also attempted a bit of sewing, which is fast becoming addictive! I distressed all the edges for a more vintage look, something else that will be creeping in a bit more!! I also got the Frantage out and had a bit of a play! Hope you like it...

What I have used:
Papers - First Edition
Sentiment - Lili of the Valley
Flowers - Spellbinders Rose Creation and Marianne Creatables
Leaves - Noor
Frantage - Aged Bronze
Corner - Cheery Lynn
Paper clip - Tim Holtz
Lace - Hobby House

I would like to enter the following challenges please:
Inky Chicks - Use two different die cuts
Crafty Sentiments - Favourite technique or colour
Tip Top Tuesday - Flowers and DT call
Oldie but a Goodie - Bingo (stitching, flowers, die cuts) (oldie - Cheery Lynn die cut)
A Little bit Crafty - A little bit shabby

Thank you for stopping by, and please pop back again soon!

Love and light
Claire xx
