Hello, everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful family time and are feeling rested??? Maybe not??
We have had a quiet time this year with just ourselves as our family are living abroad or working and unable to visit. It has been great to relax and spend time with the boys and get totally gubbed by them on the Wii!

I have managed to put this card together over about 3 days! A bit at a time!
Well under the tree waiting for me this year was a mini-sewing machine. I am no expert..in fact I have not a clue when it comes to using it! So this was my first attempt at using it on my cards. I thought I would go for the distressed look as it might disguise my primary school sewing. I quite like the rustic look!! Hubbie is expecting all all our clothes to be fixed beautifully! Little does he know..I just want my cards to look beautiful!! LOL!
Anyway I have seen so many beautiful cards finished on the inside and out that I thought I would do that too on this one. Don't expect it on all my cards maybe just the odd one! Again the distressed look!
Must run and rescue kids...I can hear them flooding the bathroom! Can't turn my back for a minute!!
Love Judy xx
Stamp: Magnolia, love letter background, love post ( Valentine's collection 2008)
Colouring: prismacolor pencils, sansador, white ink pen distress inks for edges
Embellishments: flowers, brads, spacers from stash, ric rac, Tim Holtz ticket
Tools: sewing machine!!

Sorry should have told you the army have decided we cannot go to Arbroath now so we are having to go to RAF Leuchars in St Andrews. And Rob is not allowed to come with us until 6 months later!!He is to stay in Germany.
