I'm a sponsor at MIM!

Good morning peeps! I was asked by my flabulous Co-ordinator Lisa if I would like to sponsor her wonderful friend Michelle's Make It Monday Linky Party. grass green??? Of course, I would LOVE to sponsor MIM. It's not a challenge blog but a place to showcase your work and possibly win a place in the spotlight and a prize from a sponsor. Michelle has put together a small but perfectly formed DT and guess who's on it??? Lisa and Mary J!!!! What can I say...Michelle's got great taste lol.

I offered to make a card but unfortunately my weekend was incredibly busy (bridesmaid dress hunting...tell you about that later!) so I was unable to make the one I wanted. As I was in the process of finishing off a commission for a baby card, I used this instead. I hope you're not fed up with my baby cards lol! You'll have to excuse the crooked picture :-s

This has taken a while to grow on me. Originally I wanted to sew the felt to look like a quilt but the felt wasn't behaving so I only stitched the edges.

When Elzybells closed it's doors last year I snapped up some of her buttons in the sale...these ones matched perfectly. See...I DID need them lol!

There's a gazillion buttons of all shapes and sizes in each pot to keep me going for a while.

This sheer ruffle edged ribbon is gorgeous and the SU! Word Window punched sentiment fits perfectly between the edges.

Ok...why don't you skedaddle on over to Make It Monday, grab the banner while you're there and wish the new DT good luck :-D but before I go I'd like to thank Michelle's mom Shirley-Anne for becoming my 150th follower woot woot!!!

Have a great week!

Catch ya later x
