Stitched up!

Hiya Bloggettes - I need your help!

Do you remember last week when I said someone had been in and stolen a day? Well the rotten things have been back and stolen a whole week! Eeeps! I mean whatever will they take next? A whole month?? Where will I be then? Other than in June (obviously) as its now May. I've just no idea where the time went to - nor any particular ideas of what I've been doing. In my defence I have had a touch of 'man flu', obviously nowhere near as severe as he who gave to me who shall not be named, no my darling beloved I shall not tell it was you! I mean you had to stay in bed while afternoon everyday.....

Still on a lighter note (thank goodness you cry) over at Totally Gorjuss a new challenge has been set. This week stitching is required. This can be real of fake/faux/pretend/drawn or whatever you like to call it. Now sewing has never been my friend! I could tell you about the time I made some curtains.... Lets just say I've only ever made the one pair ;))

Now for mine I used this cute little boy from Lili of the Valley I think he's so cute! (and so are their new images too!) So he was Copic'd and I chose the backing paper and stuck him on..... then I realised my fake stitching wouldn't show up on the paper I'd chosen! Hence the little hearts and stars down the side. Well you have to have something there don't you? Flowers don't really work for boys cards!

More of the dotty background - sorry I still can't remember whose blog i saw it on! Pop on over for a look-see. This week there's a prize from Joanna Sheen.

Great card, the hearts and stars work really well down the side!

Janice said...

Good compromise to add hearts & stars instead of flowers. I like the colour contrasts and the image is sweet.

Hazel said...

Lovely card - hearts and stars are just right and so is the stitching x

This is really lovely Net. Have you fixed up Florida yet? It's really hot here this week, more like summer than spring. Let me know if you come over,
