Tilda and Edwin Mother's Day Card

Way hay! It is so nice to be back with you sharing a card! Life has been very full of things other than crafting.

So today I have to share with you a card that I have made on request for a customer. I was delighted to get a chance to colour some of the new Tilda and Edwin's!

I made an easel card and used the reverse side of some very old papers I had in my vast collection :)  I am on a mission to use up lots of stash instead of being enticed by all that is new and shiny. I had a great clear out when I moved upstairs to my craft room and found some very worthy recipents of my unwanted items.

So I used some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts to create my little arrangement and the butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch. The sentiment is created from the computer.

I have had a few questions about the sewing machine I use. I use a Janome Mini which I bought from John Lewis a couple of years ago for £50. It is just perfect for my needs and can stitch through a maximum of 3 sheets of paper or card. i wouldn't try any more than that! I don't use it for stitching fabric. I would suggest if you want to do that then you should invest in a sturdier model. For my needs in papercrafting...I LOVE it and would thoroughly recommend this model.

Thanks for your visit today and all your lovely comments.

Have a wonderful day!

Hi Judy, wow what an amazing card, the images are really brought to life by your colouring and I love the off centre of the image too. Thanks for the tips re sewing machine, I've got a little one from hobbeycraft but it only does the one stitch and regularly overtightens and snaps the thread - uber frustrating! Wishing you and all a fabby week. Hugs. Katy. xxx
