Another Birthday Coming up!!

Hi Everbody,
Another day Another Challenge, This card is for Penny Black Saturday Challenge Week 157
and the theme is Stitching which l don't do alot off!!......... anyway, thought l would give it ago as l'm really liking these challenges, To begin with l managed to stitched a Zig Zag design on the bottom of the card using 2 colours of cotton Pink + lilac and as l may say so did this by hand!! l don't own a sewing maching!! the card used is White embossed with Hearts which l coloured using my Promarker pens, l added some pearly Pink Adhesive gems, Pink Glitter peel off, Happy Birthday Sentiment and last but not least my Penny Black stamp also coloured with Promarker pens, hope you like this and if your happy with what you see please leave your comments, any comments that you do leave are gratefully appreciated and l read them all, Many Thanks Sandra H xx

  14. Wonderful card Sandra, so much going on and it all fits together magically. Love the embossing,glitter and the hedgie, I posted your candy a couple of days ago now, was hanging on until everyone had contacted me, then found out that one of them was going to canada and apparently there is a postal strike at the mo over there. Typical, eh? so now I have to keep checking the web to see if I can post yet. Hope I don't lose the packet or anything silly, cos we go on our hols soon and it gets a bit hectic here prior to leaving. Just had a wee look at the pic you have of Tayla Rae on your blog, she is so sweet, I am sure that I would have to spend all my time cuddling her when she visits, and the crafting would have to wait. (smiles) have a good weekend hugs heidix
