Hi Everyone! I hope you are all doing well. My house at present is full of sick people (myself and the two boys) compliments of our trip to Melbourne I am sure. I have spent most of today in bed and had to cancel an appointment with the Real Estate Agent about the sale of our other house.
Today I have a card for the latest challenge at Cards in Envy. This fortnight's theme had me totally out of my comfort zone as the theme was to use Stitching on your card. I so don't sew, (well only if I have too) but given I have had a bit of practice on the sewing machine of late taking up lots of 'A's trousers, I decided to use it on my card, as well as some faux stitching.
Whilst away in Melbourne , I purchased some new stamps so I just had to ink up this adorable cat by Stamp It!
Christmas is just over 6 months away so starting on my Christmas Cards now is probably a good thing as I am usually playing catch up late in the year. I have colored in this cute kitty with my Inktense Water Color Pencils and I just love the way he turned out.
The rest of the DT have some more fabulous stitching inspiration for you so be sure to pop over to the Cards in Envy Site and check all their cards out too!
