Less Is More # 77

Hello All!

Well we`re back from our mini break and had a wonderful time. The weather, although not fantastic was quite kind and as neither of us are the sunbathing type, we had no problem with it being a bit cloudy.
We had a day out in York which is always amazing. Went to a couple of markets in nearby towns and managed to find a couple of craft stalls too which can only be a good thing hee hee.

I appear to have `lost` a couple of followers. I hope that they have stopped blogging and it`s nothing I`ve done to offend them :(

Anyway, onto todays challenge from Simply Less is More. This week Mandi and Chrissie want us to use SEWING on our cards.
I`ve managed to avoid this until now. I`ve seen loads of other crafters use sewing on their cards and they look fab but it just isn`t my thing. Maybe it`s because the only machine I`ve got is an ancient singer that does running stitch and thats it. No fancy stitching for me I`m afraid but it has served me well over the years ( probably being serving others well for over a hundred years...yes it`s that old).
So...not my best creation but it has got sewing on it...

Image is a digi from Just Inklined coloured with Promarkers.

Apologies for the piccy, it looks a bit washed out but is quite bright IRL.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  4. I'm getting a bit worried looking at all these beautifully stiched lines - not my best skill I'm afraid. Yours is really nice and frames the flower image perfectly.
