Hay look Ma I`m on TV

Hello, well I`m not on TV but my cards are. I did some samples for Crafters Companion a week or two ago and today they are on Hochanda with Fiona Clayton and I think the next show is at 3 this afternoon. I love this card using the Diamond Press dies & stamps and as I am a sewer myself I really connected with this set.

what was used:
NitWit Dress Shoppe 8" x 8" paper pad
6" x 6" white base card
craft card
white card to stamp onto and die cut
white linen card
grey ink pad
pink ink pad
small heart punch
pink sewing cotton
small white button
This is a fun card to make but I did use my Scan n Cut to make the doily shape so if you don't have this machine you could use any doily die or even a corner or apeture die instead.
Some people have asked what is the best way to use these dies and stamps and I find it easier to cut out the shape and then stamp the image onto it. Because the stamps are clear it is easy to see where the stamp is on the card but some people I know prefer to take the card to the stamp.
I hand cut the little cotton bobbin and wound the cotton onto it.
My little battered up old car made it through its MOT and lives to drive another year although my purse is much lighter now so no more treats for me this month. I hate driving but love my car as it gives me some independence, but she`s an old girl now and I do fear for her every year at MOT time.
The snow that was promised over the weekend never arrived although it was bitter cold. Its all change today as its dull and wet so I think a day of crafting is the best way to deal with a miserable Monday in January.
