Don't Faint!

It's March and this is only my second post in 2011 - so much for the New Years Resolution.

And what a pfaff it's been. How can something that looks so simple be so difficult? First there was the cutting around the image, then I thought I would thread up the full size sewing machine as you need to have bionic eyesight to thread up the mini version I bought for cards - could I remember what to do? - could I heck and about an hour later we were good to go.



Anyhoo I hope it's worth the 'sweatinducingbleepbleeproomlikeashambles' effort. The image and sentiment are from Pink Petticoat, a button and a little fancy punching is all there is to this easy peasy card - not!

I'm entering it into the Less Is More (pastel) and Clean and Simple (sketch) challenges.

Thanks for looking!

  1. Hi Kimberley
    Your card is so pretty those PP images are FAB
    The subtle dp serves suitably as a 'blank' space I think
    Great to see you, thank you
