I saw this challenge on an old friends blog and thought I might give it a go, not sure if it is what is required as I did the lattice and blue embellishments on a die cutter, and the butterfly is embroidered
The challenge is 162 Punches and Dies

Trapeeze Card

I can't believe I haven't made one of these in ages, I used to love making them. Funny how we swap and change. Must get back into it again I still have loads of beads I could use up.

8 October

Don't you just love this image, I have even done a bit of inking around the sides, a thing I never do as it never looks right to me, others do it and it goes, I do it and, well say no more, this time I was happier about it.

Back to my stitching, I still think  stitching is probably my first love in card making.

6 October

This one was a comp for Sharon Duncan, the girlie images are hers and we had to make a card with them, this was what I did and trimmed their hats and muffs with shredded plastic.
Afraid the picture doesn't show it very well but it did look glisteny.

Something a little different, well you have to have a change now and again, so I put 4 strands of 4ply together to make this little bag.

4 October

This card was for a friend, I embroidered onto heavy weight vellum and then used brads  to attach it to the card stock. Then a stamped message and bow finished it off.

3 October

Trying out different folds on the Hougie, My friend sent me a lot of knicker lace (she can no longer see well enough to continue her sewing) so thought I  would use some on my cards. So long as I don't tell where the lace should be ha ha.

New Template

This one was a New Template I tried out, no stitching in sight, but I did try a bit of distressing, still not sure if I like that look. Although it doesn't show up to well in the piocture.
Sorry about the background, it's my messy craft room, I couldn't find a space space.

First of the Month

Were has the year gone every year passes quicker or seems to.
 I have just organised this months ATC and Craft Challenge over on the naughty step as I can't put any on C.O.T.N. till they sort their problems out, if ever they do. Hope everyone realises were they have gone.
This was for my nephews wedding, yes more stitching.
