♥ Little hanging cushion ♥





Hi there :)   no cards today .  I got out all my sewing bits and bobs and made this little decorative hanging cushion.  I forgot I even had this fabric got it a few years ago on Ebay in a sample pack, so it is the only piece of this pattern I have.  I made the rosette flower using elastic gingham ribbon and added a Tilda fabric brad as the button for centre and stitched two chunky felt leaves.  I hand stitched on the bobbin trim and the seam binding and also the buttons.  The buttons are also from Tilda (I am loving the Tilda range, soooo adorable! )  I actually won a little bundle of Tilda supplies a few years ago which included ... fabric, a bottle of pink buttons, 5 x rolls ribbon, a pack of appliques and fabric brads .... hoarding as usual .... LOL :)

Hope you are all doing well 
have a fab evening ♥

♥ Lawn Fawn ~ Thinking of you ♥




I recently bought myself some Lawn fawn stamps and I think they are sooooo adorable!!!  I love this set especially, called "chit chat" and I then bought the matching dies as I think they look nicer cut out with the matching dies, it gives them a lovely crisp finish.
I added a scallop stitched border from L'il Inkers using Avery Elle paper along the bottom ... very CAS and cute!


Have a fab day ♥

♥ City Crafter Challenge ~ Week 265 ~ tic TAG toe ♥






Hi there .... Something a little different from me today :)  .... Well I used to make shabby chic style cards, tags etc if you have followed me for years you will already know this.  I love this style just as much as CAS.  This gorgeous! paper is one I have hoarded ... LOL (we all have those paper pads?? ... don't we??) is Melissa Frances Fifth Ave and I adore this paper, don't even know if it is retired.
Anyhow I was browsing through challenge blogs and City Crafter's Challenge, is to make a tag or use a tag on your project.  So I got out a few of my shabby chic trimmings ... seam binding, jute, paper rose and pearl string and die cut a stitched tag from Waltzing Mouse and butterfly die from Memory box and a little silver puffy heart dangle embellishment that Mandy sent me years ago :) and this is what I created :)

Hope you all have a fab weekend ♥

♥ CAS(E) this sketch! ... #123





Hi there ... I'm on a wee roll with my card making :)  Another card for another challenge today for CAS(E) this sketch.
I love this modern colour combo.
I used Waffle flower thank you sentiment from the 100% love mini stamp set and L'il inkers stitched banner dies behind the sentiment.  It's difficult to see stitch details as it's cut from gold glitter card.
Added some messy gold thread behind that, and popped it up on 3d tape.
Along the bottom I added a strip of stripey paper from Echo Park and Doodlebug white enamel dots and finally a paint splat stamp.

Thanks for stopping by
Have a fab day ♥
