All Stitched Up!

Hello there! Happy Saturday!

Well....one thing I can say is that time sure does fly when you're having fun! I'm not sure what has happened to my week off...its whizzed by!

I've had a fab week....Monday was spent in the spa with my best friend Becca. We really were ladies of leisure - I was soooo relaxed afterwards. Then I spent a couple of days on the Isle of Wight with Joe - and that was brilliant. There is sooo much to do and see, we're definitly going back! I think the best bit was feeding the penguins and walking with the wallabys (yes I am a big kid at heart!!).

Now it's Saturday again and tonight is my 1950s themed birthday party....I can't wait to see how everyone looks! I've baked myself a Birthday cake (the problem with being "the one that bakes" in a group of friends is that there is no one to bake your cake when its your Birthday!!). Here is a sneak peek.....



Anyway, enough of my jabbering....I have a card for you today for the fab challenge over at My Time to Craft. This week we have a "stitching" theme....your card can feature real or faux stitching we don't mind as long as there are some stitches on there!!

I've gone a little mad with the theme....but when I saw this digi image I just had to have it!!
 
 
Isn't ot fab?? Not sure what has happened to the colour of my photo...I messed around with it a bit and seem to have produced some hot pink bits which aren't really that pink!! Think pastel colours!!
 
I've coloured my image with my Promarkers, going with pretty pastel shades (honest!!) to go with the kraft and pretty patterened backing paper. I've added my faux white stitches to the kraft to make them stand out.
 
Pop by the My Time to Craft Challenge blog to see how my lovely teamies used stitching on their cards!
 
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
 
I Heart Promarkers - pastel colours
Papertake Weekly - one paper taker (one patterened paper only)
Top Tip Tuesday - sewing that isn't machine sewing
 
If you've got a minute pop by all these fab blogs for some great inspiration!
 
Thanks for popping by today,
Wedgie xxx

A fab card, Wedgie - love that image! Your birthday cake looks delicious, too! I suppose the advantage of you baking your own is that you know it's going to be something you'll like! So pleased to hear that you had a great time. Hugs, Tracey x
