Couple of Cards

Here's a Christmas card made with PP images and Sweet Shoppe papers. They layout is from a scrapbook template.
I've always really liked the look of stitching on cards but up till now it's just been way too much trouble to get the sewing machine out. Today I decided to have a go and I'm pleased with the result. The papers are from the Dream It Be It digikit by Doreen Stolz, the sentiment stamps are by The Angel Company (TAC) and where would I be without my HOTP template flowers! I'm hoping to find some of the new ones at Ally Pally at the end of the month. TFL.

well these are just lovely Julie but i know to expect nothing less. Love them both for different reasons,lovely bright colours on the christmas design,fab layout. Love the 'Just because' for it's simplicity and rich colour. I bought myself a mini sewing machine the other day but it may take me a while to figure out how to even set it up never mind use it. You've done a great job here with the stitching, have a nice weekend xx
