Sew it's your birthday?

Hi , and thank you to everyone who has taken the time to leave such lovely comments on my posts.

I made this card yesterday and it was a very spur of the moment make.  I used Heartfelt Creations Burlap background stamp, and then stamped out the elements from the Stampography stamps which I bought from Kraftyhands.co.uk.  The stamps are designed by Linda Simpson, and I just hope I have done them justice.
The cotton reel and needle and thread are Memory Box dies, and the scissors started out life as a very bright gold, so I used a silver metallic marker to change the colour.


Not a very good photograph, the light is dreadful again today.
Take care............................. till next time
