Lets make the most of this guys because I am nakkered, LOL!
Its my friends birthday on Monday. She would like us all to come over that evening but it is a tad late to have Cameron out as he has school the next day. So, (as if you needed telling) I have made her a card and will post it so it reaches her in time. I made this while watching England sleep walk around the pitch, humph!

I have tried to do something different here. A lot of my cards have hard, straight edges and lines and I wanted to soften the look a little. I have never used linen thread before or attempted any embroidery. I have always loved the effect but either never had the time or felt it would be a bit tricky for me. I was wrong about the latter, although it did take some time, well worth it in the end I think.
I adore the use of tags, I am going to put aside some money to purchase a tag punch and tiny labels. Here I have improvised using my circle and scallop circle punches. It looks OK but nothing like the real thing I say.
I bought a new background stamp last week, I had been itching to try it out. I did, and was thoroughly disappointed. I kept getting "blank" areas with each image I tried. I inked the stamp pretty well and made sure to huff, hmmm? I would have used that today instead of my jumbo wheel, but you gotta love that pattern!
Ta Ta for now.
