Firstly I want to say thank you to everyone who sent get well wishes, it is really appreciated. I'm on the mend - not 100% but nearly there.
I really wanted to join in with the first challenge over at the new Saturated Canary challenge blog - so I sat and tried to create today. Well it just wasn't working, I don't like the way the skirt is coloured makes it look like culottes! Although I don't think I done too bad with the top. I also tried using my new sewing machine that I got for my birthday and the bloody thing won't work!! It worked when I tried sewing on the sample piece of material that was in with the machine - tried on the card and it wouldn't blooming well work - I've spent all afternoon, on and off, fiddling with it. Me and hubby even argued over what was wrong with it!
So I then decided to punch a paper border to cover where the stitching went wrong - don't like it! Don't like how the ribbon doesn't go round the edge either.
I give up - sometimes the old carding just doesn't go as planned. So here is a card to share, but I don't think much of it. Pah!!
