Good morning! And isn't it a frosty one over this side of the world! I've just had a lovely bowl of porridge to warm me up!
We have some more fabulous Inspiration for you over at the Little Miss Muffet Challenge blog today. Have you seen all the images that were released this February? There really are sooo many beautiful images and even better, some of them are now available in rubber!
Don't forget there's still a week left to get your entry into our current challenge which is Fancy or Lacy, OR if you use a Little Miss Muffet Stamps image then the theme is Anything Goes.
For my card today, I used one of the new Hatter sisters, Sophia Maria Hatter:
Isn't she lovely? I made a bit of an assembly mistake with this card when I was sewing the pieces together. I had meant to put the green at the top and the orange on the bottom to give more contrast to her hat, but when I sewing the music strip on, I totally forgot and sewed it upside down. Ah well...
The papers are a mixture from October Afternoon, Crate Paper and Echo Park I think. The big flower is by Prima and the other embellishments are from Making Memories. The sentiment tag is from Maya Road and the sentiment is from Amy R Summer Sentiments. The lace is from The Ribbon Girl.
Here's a close-up of Sophia Maria Hatter:
And here are the copics I used:
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Party Time Tuesdays: Anything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday: Stitching
Squigglefly: Spring is in the air (plus use fibres, eg ribbon or lace)
When using your sewing machine to sew stitching on cards:
- never sew through double sided tape as it will make your needle sticky and cause it to drag and snap (I've broken a fair few needles) or move out of alignment
- you can start and finish in the same stitch hole by using the hand wheel on the last stitch and moving your card to position the needle directly over your starting hole
- if you sew around your cards, you don't need to use very much double sided tape. I use just one small piece to anchor my card before I sew
Have a lovely day! I'm off to do loads of housework and run some errands.
