Hi Everyone

I'm getting there slowly again so I am only running a day late with this post. This week is my turn at being Guest Designer over at MAWTT again. I have to admit I miss the girlies over there & it is so nice to be able to join in with them again. This week it is Brenda's turn to host the challenge & she has chosen "In Stitches" as her theme this week.The sponsor this week is the fab Digistamp Boutique & I am so glad I got to play with another of their fab images for my card.

Make sure you have a go at this challenge as you are being offered the chance of winning 10, yes 10 images of your choice!!!!

I used my sewing machine again for this card & although my sewing is a bit wonky it is definately getting better. I am no longer making silly mistakes like trying to use the machine with the foot still up lol!!! I coloured the image with Promarkers & added Stickles to the flowers in the bouquet as well as to the larger flowers. xx Clare x

This is a lovely card, but our challenge was sparkle and glitter. There is hardly any on here.

Thanks anyway for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers.

Both the roses have had stickles added to them & so has the bouquet. It obviously hasn't ome out to full effect on the camera. I didn't actually see in the challenge description that you had to have a specific amount of glitter on the card. Clare x
