HEY! WHO pinched Spring?

COME ON own up!

SNOW here YUKKK!!! Not fair! I want Spring back!

Yes I love making Christmas cards and yes some have snow on them but COME on! give me the warm sunny springs days back!!

We have a new Challenge this fortnight at ABC Christmas challenge.
our host is the fabulous Lacey

and the Theme is

and we have 2 awesome sponsors for you this time

For my card I have to admit I had a bit of a struggle I had a HUGE rummage and could not find any gold card or charms or anything other than my gold sakura pen! I had another rummage remembering I had some mirror card... nope could not find that either but............ Happy FACE I found some gold metal

hmmmmm How the heck am I gonna make that stick I thought to myself....?

well as I have a spare needle I use for sewing on card, its a denim one I thought I would give the metal a try its only thin craft metal so nothing to lose..
So I embossed the metal first and cut the things I wanted to sew and set to at my lovely Singer sewing machine. this is an old 501 that my Mum re vamped for me! and I have had it a long time when my son was about 2 my parents found me a cabinet for it, sanded it and it fit like a dream!
Anyway here is a closer look at my card

I have had fun sewing and did some ribbon ruffles too!

The image is a Whiff of Joy and his Name is Henry isn't he the cutest!! I LOVE Henry he is my favourite!
I have coloured in Distress re inkers and his had trimmings I added Flock.

  1. Hi Samantha
    Another gorgeous and very adorable card! So glad you found something gold to play with and what a play that was. Love the way you stitched the metal to the card I would probably use a silicone glue which does a fantastic job and could not live without.
