Stop the Press...

...I've made a card!  I know?!  I seem to have misplaced my Mojo lately - well, for cardmaking anyway!  I have been busy crocheting hats, creating Christmas decorations and glueing larch cones onto everything in sight, to make items to sell at our Christmas fair in December but I have had no inclination to sit and make a card!  So, to remedy this, I printed off some papers and image from the sewing design set of A Play on Words (not that I have a favourite, of course!) and set about making...
..I pasted the sewing machine .png in my graphics program and layered the sewing machine emboss image over the top, to get this coloured emboss effect, which I really like.  I made some handmade flowers using my punches, including the small star flower shape which I got in my order from The Works - allsorts of items ended up in my basket as there was 25% off including the sweet little bobbin and the pretty buttons, plus a few paper pads (about 6 in all), a mixed ribbon pack and some Christmas gift fillers.  There's 30% off if you spend over £30 this weekend, so I'd better not visit their website!...
...I inked all the edges of the layers with Walnut Stain DI and added some salmon pink, wide, satin ribbon and look!...I even managed to finish the inside with coordinating papers and a panel for writing on!...
...Now all that's left to do is make a box for it to go in...darn bobbin!
Well, that's it from me - a flying visit today - Mum's coming any time for us to plan cards for our workshop next weekend and I need to clear a 6 inch square to work on my crafty table! Have a wonderful weekend and hopefully, the sun may make an appearance!

Sounds like you've been a very busy and industrious lady, wish you could send some of it my way, I'm struggling at the mo to make any dent in my long 'to-do' list :/ Love this latest make, the subject, colours and design are gorgeous and you made your own flowers too! Just fab.
I see that you also end up working in a small space on your desk, thought that was just me, lol.
