Friday Sketchers + Cute Card Thursday

Hi everyone hope your all having a good weekend. Well I had a little play last night with my new toy - Janome M100 sewing machine and although it was a bit tricky at first I got the hang of it. Not being used to an electric sewing machine, having used my dear nan's faithful Singer for years (which must be older than I) it was quite a challenge, but Im sure as my nan looks down on me she'll be proud. Thanks to my friend Jacqui for the info on this fab toy.


So anyway I made this card for Friday Sketchers + Cute Card Thursday - Soft Furnishing. I'm so glad I managed to combine this card, as I've missed so much of CCT and was feeling so guilty at not joining in and missed it too.




I received my new gorgeous Whiff Of Joy stamps on Thursday but have not had the time to play till last night - aren't they cute, this one is Winter Charlotte with Cat. I still think my colouring needs some practice - not entirley happy with the result. The stitching is a bit wonky but with practice Im sure it'll get better, but I had fun making it and I guess that the main thing, lol

Have a great evening, TFL x
