Well I had great fun making this card. After seeing lots of fab stitching on so many cards I've been very close (a few times) to buying a Janome Mini sewing machine but just couldn't justify the £50. Then I remembered I bought a sewing machine years & years ago so set to in the loft (which is also where I have my craft area) to try & find it. Buried under loads of boxes for electrical goods we've bought over the last few years was a very old & very dusty Janome sewing machine!!. It's certainly not mini & weighs an absolute ton but it works & better still I remembered how to thread it so after working out the different stitches I put it to use on my card for this weeks Cute Card Thursday challenge & this week where they would like to see some stars.
I've used a downloaded image from Cuddly Buddly called Giggles Nativity which have to be some of the cutest nativity images available.
I've had a go at stitching round the image . . . now please don't look closely LOL!! I'm working on the basis that it's a childs nativity scene so should look as though a childs had hold of a sewing machine!!!
I've made s shooting star type bead thingy & attached a Cuddly Buddly sentiment stamp.
The DP is Papermania christmas paper.
I really enjoyed making this card although it brought back painful memories of managing to sew through my index finger in a sewing lesson in high school lol!!!
