Just a note...

Thursday again... and another weekend looming. Where do the weeks go!?

Anyway, as it's Thursday I am here to share my DT card for

We have a bit of stitching going on this time and we would like to share your favourite kind, real or's up to you but remember to tell us WHY.

Here's my contribution...

I rarely add real stitching to my cards, simply because it's a palaver getting the sewing machine out, however, I have recently been trying my hand at patchwork so the machine has been set up ready to go, so I had no excuse this time.

I have to say I am really rather pleased with myself, so much so I have included a close up of my handiwork (don't spend too long looking though, I'm really not that good!!)

I used the lovely Parisienne Blue papers and followed another LOTV sketch. I embossed the circle with a freebie that came from a magazine, as it had an appropriate pattern and sanded it back to reveal the core. The pretty jug was a freebie from Jelly Park. I coloured it to match the papers with....wait for it...Spectrum Noirs (I am really trying to master these!!).

I am playing here
