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!

Flora Bonita - Quixotic Paperie

Morning folks!

I am back this lovely cold and sunny morning with a card to share with you from the new release from Victoria Case available from Quixotic Paperie.

This lovely lady is called 'Flora Bonita'. I especially enjoyed colouring her lovely locks of hair! List of copics used will be at the bottom of the post.

I chose to make a circular easel card.  These are made with exactly the same way as a normal square easel card...just use your circle nesties instead!

The sentiment is from the Stempelglede set called 'Just A Note'. I used a little Tim Holtz handle thingy...not sure what they are called to make  a little secret panel underneath where you can write your message.

Thanks for visiting today! It might be a few days before I am back as I have my Mum coming to stay next week and we will be spending time chatting and having lots of coffee I hope :))

Please excuse my photos today..they are slightly out of focus and easel cards are notoriously hard to capture!

Have a great weekend everyone!
