In my sewing box.....



Good day!


Seasons are changing rapidly, here, down under. Last week when we spoke, it was still summer and this week it is about 10 degrees less. Not that I have a big problem with the cooler weather, but I don't like to have cold feet.

Today's inspiration was triggered by the Cupcake Craft Challenge #186 - Sewing box. In a few weeks time it will be mother's day in South Africa and my mother in law has a passion for sewing and as I went through all the challenges at Feline Playful, pink and cream and pastels came out. All colours to suite my mother in law. The digi is from Digi my World, called mannequindress. The corners and embossing is done with my cuttlebug. I've added lace, wool thread, metal thread in faux needle and buttons to it. The other embellies is left overs from a previous project and just added some xtra flair to the card. The sentiment is taken from Desert Diva. She's very sweet and can make any sentiment on request. Sure something to keep in mind. All papers is from my stash.

Other challenges I'm joining:

Quirky Craft Challenge #7 - Sketch
Sketchy Colours # 111 - Pink and Cream
Fashionista Challenge #1 - Anything goes for girls
Anything Goes #7 - Anything goes



Hope you have a lovely day and thank you for your visit.
