'Happy' Crafting

Good evening happy crafters,

'Sew' much crafting to be done - and so little time! Don't you agree!

Well, I've had a 'little time' to myself tonight and have a card for you which I've made with two challenges in mind -

CASology #2 - "Happy", and
Less is More Week 77 - "Sewing"




Bobbins are a TH die, cut in kraft card and inked lightly with Vintage Photo and wrapped with DMC threads.
Sentiment is computer generated.

Okay, that's me for tonight, short and sweet!  Have a great week everyone, I probably won't be able to join in next week's challenges - later in the week we're off to the city that's so good they named it twice! Can't wait!

See you all soon, take care and thanks for coming to visit.

Suze xx
