Allsorts of Needles and Pins

 Good morning. Well it's Saturday so that means it's time for another fab new challenge at


and this week the gorgeous and mega talented Jo has picked the theme


 I decided to use this fab Hero Arts Digi image 'Sew Crafty' available here - I changed the coloured digi stamp to a Black & White version so I could colour match with PM's to my Design Papers - Tim Holtz 'Vintage Shabby'

This also used:
Ribbon - From stash
Flat backed pearls - Hobbycraft
Decorative Hat Pins - from stash

A super card for Jo theme Debs, so nice to have some 'grown up' girly images if you know what I mean.

Beautiful pictures of the grandchildren, times to cherish when they are this size.

Have a good weekend.
