Stitching & Gingerbread Men

Evening Ladies, this is a quick post, for a challenge card that I managed to slip in, in the middle of doing my daughter's engagement invites, now sitting at 65.......I choose to do a Sarah Kay design, which I thought would be no problem when she asked for 30, but now she has doubled it and more, I have been colouring constantly for 3 days I will post one when it is finished to let you see it.

I had an e-mail from Stef to say that the Stamping Boutique is carrying her "ART WORK" I popped over to take a look and was so impressed that I will be ordering some as soon as payday comes around.  I urge you to pop over and take a look, she is truly a talented lady, and also very funny, if you have not already checked out her blog, now is the time to do so....








This card is for 2 challenges, The Character Cafe wanted to see stitching on your projects this week, I had this paper from another kit that I bought from QVC a few years ago and never got round to using, I teamed it up with some Gingerbread Men embellishments also from a QVC kit that I have had forever, this fits in with the Winterwonderland Challenge WK20 which asks for "Gingerbread Men" to be on your project, as I say this was a quick card, but hopefully you will like it.

I am off again to my shed to do some more invites, thank god for radio.......LOL, which keeps me company whilst I craft. Hope you have all had a fab Wednesday and are already looking forward to the weekend, our kids come off school on Friday for their October holidays, Brian is also taking a weeks holiday, which fits in great with me going to the SECC show next Thursday, can't wait......Hugs to you all Avril xxxx

Lovely card Avril. Good luck with the challenges and the invitations. I had to make 50 21st invitations earlier this year, which was bad enough but at least I didn't have to do any colouring in, I used a photo of her when she was younger. Debs xx
