In Stitches at Allsorts

Good morning. It's the weekend and this post was going to be scheduled as we were supposed to be travelling up North to visit John's Mum who recently celebrated her 80th birthday :o) but unfortunately Jack hasn't been too well so we had to cancel :o(

So as it is Saturday that means it's time for a new challenge over at 


and Brenda picked the theme


Here's what I did:

 I got the sewing machine out (must be the second time this year lol!!!) and 'doodle' stitched - that's my description for my wibbly wobbly lines around a panel that I embossed with the gorgeous Tied Together embossing folder.
 I heat embossed an image from this week's sponsor - Flonz Craft 'Butterfly on a Branch' using Stampedous Glitter Enamel EP
and then added some scrummy Lilac Blossom Sequins by MeiFlower from My Crafty Heart
Edges inked with Dusty Concorde Distress Ink
 To finish I added some scrummy lace, a retro punched flower and some Martha Stewart punched leaves

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT have done and to check out the full details of the prizes on offer from the sponsors this week.

We are also having a DT call and the full details can be seen here.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Eureka Stamps - Things with Wings
Critter Sketch - Embossing
House of Gilli - Embossing
Crazy Challenge - Handmade Flowers
Chocolate, Coffee and Cards - Stitching
Totally Gorjuss - Things with Wings

Thanks for popping by my blog today and any lovely comments you may wish to leave - I love to read them all and really appreciate you taking the time.
Have a fabulous weekend.

This is a lovely selection of note cads Debs, I never get my sewing machine out either but I'm in the middle of decorating and sorting out my craft room and aim to keep my sewing machine out so I might get around to using it a bit more.
Sorry your trip had to be cancelled, hopefully you will be able to re-schedule soon.

These are stunning Debs. I love the design and your stitching looks fabulous.

For some reason, even though I am following you, your blog will not come up on my reading list. That is why I keep missing your cards. I have now put you onto my favourites and try to remember to check your blog everyone day or so.

hugs Sue
