Les fleurs

It's always great to have a backlog of projects to post for weeks like this when time has flown and I've barely entered my craft room! I made this card a while ago for a dear family friend in Australia who celebrates her birthday this week.

I immediately fell in love with this Sweet Fleurs stamp from Hero Arts - stamped onto Kraft cardstock and coloured with Copics and a white gel pen.

I treated myself to a new (well second-hand) sewing machine today - I've been asking a bit too much from my wee Janome Mini and have now gone to the opposite extreme and bought a real workhorse that apparently can sew through lead lol!! Don't think I'll be attempting anytime soon mind you!

Thanks for stopping by!

Oooh I quite fancy a pair of lead curtains, can you whip me up a pair? LOL

Yummy card, never tried to stamp on craft and colour it -looks fantastic.

Hope you are well and hurry up and get back in that craft room ;D
