Sorry not be around much this week, been back at work and just haven't had much time for me. So I'm hoping I can use this card for PTW as it has faux stitching and CCT as it has water theme. Papers are all from Summer Driggs free Download, lace from stash, gems from papermania, flowers prima and stamp magnolia. I wouldn't normally use these colours, but I do like the lime and black together. Thanks for looking and I hope you are all well. I hope to get round everyone's blog later Hugs Jill x

Cross Stitch Tilda

This is my entry for Friday Sketchers and we had another fab sketch by Carole. I loved the sketch and will use it again. Now onto the card well, I must be having an off day today. This was the 3 Tilda I attempted to colour in, I tried stitching the paper with a sewing machine and ripped it beyond repair lol. So I cut out more paper and found some K&CO rub on stitches. I'm not happy with this card I don't know what it is but, it didn't turn out how I wanted. Flowers are Prima, buttons from stash and papers were free with magazine. Thanks for looking hope your all having a more creative time than me lol Jill x

My Entry for Friday Sketchers

Hello everyone, sorry, with it being the school holidays, I just haven't had much time to make cards or blog. I have tried to leave comments for everyone, on your blogs. This was a hard challenge for me and I wasn't going to do it, but I thought I'd give it a try. It took ages to curl the paper around the image. I usually make neat cards, and don't do all the distressing. This is also the first time I've coloured in with the Pro Markers, they are very different to water colour pencils. I've took a close up as well, you can then see all the mistakes I've made. Still not sure if I like them? Thanks for looking and any comments you may leave. Hugs Jill xx
