Boy do I hate sewing!!

Just a quick post as we are having a new boiler fitted today!! Boy when things start to go wrong do they go wrong!!!!

Anyway I managed to get to my craft class this week at the Craft Box which was very therapeutic as always!!!! Not!! we did sewing well it took ages so I had to colour my image when I got back home so here she is.

This beautiful Tilda was from the valentine collection this year and she is just Divine! (I must admit to already having her but still to ink her up!!) lol

The papers I'm sorry I didn't ask but they go so well with the plain green card.
Added some stickles to the flowers and as you can see they are still wet. Lots of beautiful green gems and some MS branch and Prima leaves around the flowers.

Got to go now as I'm doing my DT work and making tea for the gas fitter!!!

Sorry forgot to add a big welcome to my new followers and thank you to everyone for your beautiful comments they really are such a confidence boost!!

Love Chanelle xxxxx

You must have done that sewing by hand? That would drive me crazy too, it would take sooo long! I will say that it looks really fantastic though. The stitching is thicker than my sewing machine and shows up really well. The yellow and green are always such a cheerful combo!!!! Great work!!!
Hugs, Dena

I love to see a bit of sewing on cards but it's very time consuming - even getting the sewing machine out is a chore! Your card's beautiful Chanelle love the flowers.
