ALBC - Mid-way Reminder

Good morning from a sunny Blackpool.  Just back from the gym and posting this quickly before I go out and get some groceries.

This is a reminder that we are now half way through our challenge at A Little Bit Crafty which this month is Sew What.  I was given a beautiful Sewing themed stamp set from one of our Sponsors - Darkroom Door and thought I would use it again.  I saw Debby's card here on her blog and thought how gorgeous it was so thought I would try the technique although Debby's card looks thousand times better than mine!!



These are lovely stamps and though they probably are more suitable to a vintage style card the other DT members did some beautiful vintage style cards so I thought I would try something a bit different.  I used Adirondack inks for the stamping, Cheery Lynn tag for the sentiment which is PC generated. The ribbon and charm are from my stash.


Please head over to A Little Bit Crafty for all the details of the fabulous sponsors this month! I really must dash off to Booths now, take care xx
