me again!

So no waffle this time, as I did all that in the previous post.

Onto the point then - this time I'm here for the new challenge at Flat Friends and the theme there is 'stitching' so, along with your Emma Canning digi, we'd like to see some stitching on your entry.  Fake or real doesn't matter, just as long as it's there somewhere.

This is my card, please excuse the wonky stitching - I broke my pokey tool on the first attempt at this card doing faux stitching and had to start again.  So I pulled out the old sewing machine.  First time I've used it since before Christmas and I've not got the hang of it yet.

Front shot:

The Close Up:

 The Arty Farty:
 I used:

A freebie Emma has on the blog - isn't it pretty?
coloured with my Promarkers

Memory Box - swirl and flowers

First Edition - Summer Breeze

Anything else?
Craftwork Cards - card blank and sentiment
Hobby House - gems
Heart from stash

So that'll be the last you see of me for a week or so - don't miss me too much, eh!!!

Hope everyone had a lovely Easter and didn't make yourselves too sick on Easter eggs!  I know I'm sick of the sight of chocolate now!!

What a beauty Sarah! I love it, & the stitching looks fab to me, kudos to anyone who can actually sew on a card, I still resort to drawing the stitches on! xx
