Stitching on paper.























The challenge over at Wee Memories this week is for stitching, so I blew the dust of my sewing machine to have a go. The trouble is my old machine hates stitching paper, and this took me ages, the thread kept breaking, then it missed stitches and I ended up getting really cross and frustrated. Card making for me is a relaxing, stress relieving hobby and yesterday things didn't go well.  Never mind I am pleased with the finished result and I think a new machine has now been added to my never ending wish list.lol!!

I am also going to enter this in the Sir Stampalot challenge which is "Butterflies and Blossoms" check out the blog there is an amazing prize on offer of lots of Tim Holtz goodies!

Hope you all have a great week  and thank you for all your comments, I really do appreciate them.
