Sewing Time...

Afternoon Everyone, 

I hope you are all doing ok. Its really heavy rain here again today so I have been busy learning about sewing on my cards once again. Practice makes perfect (or better than earlier versions!!!)
Im slowly getting there, least im not scared of using the machine now so thats a huge step in the right direction. The lovely Jules at Always with a Heart has some super tutorials over on her blog and this card is done using the last one she did. 
Card Recipe
5 x 5 Kraft Card
Papers HOTP

Coloured with Alcohol Pens and Prismacolour pencils.
Stickles Glitter Glue
Loose Glitter Glue.
Square Stitched Dies.

Thank You for dropping by today, Im now off to have a wee blog hop and then get dinner prepped. Its second days roast beef in the slow cooker so not really that much work. It always tastes so much nicer on day 2 so looking forward to dinner time!!

Take Care

Love and Sparkles,

Hazel xx

Your card is so perfect! Lovely! Nice saying: Practice makes perfect. In Dutch we say: Practice breeds art.
I hope your dinner was perfect too! It sounds delicious.
My son was enjoying mum's pancakes (naturel and with cheese)

Super cute and your stitching is fab! Remember - stitching doesn't have to be perfect, it can be irregular and fun! So glad you joined us at Christmas with the Cuties!
