I love doing challenges but just lately I don't seem to have managed to get many done. Here's one card that combines Karen's sketch and Juliet's Valentine challenge - late for Valentines I know but I made it so that it could be given for something else if needed. The challenge was to use hand stitching, the word love and a bird......where's the bird? I hear you call, well there isn't one because numb skull here managed to forget it.Here's the sketch -which, of course I turned around.I used K&Company products, and in the middle you can just see two little fancy frames, there's a story that goes with those.............I'd seen a new local craft shop advertised in Crafts Beautiful so I paid it a visit, I told the lady in the shop that I'd seen her add in the magazine, she commented on how she always buys the mag and I just couldn't help telling her that I'm one of their new designers! Guess what?.............she was so impressed that she gave me money off my purchase! How cool is that? I sould have asked her what dicount I'd get for an autograph! pmsl.
