Stitching or Paper Piercing Midway Reminder

How the heck are you? I've had a busy old week...don't think crafting was involved though :-( Luckily I had made quite a lot (read that as 50+ in 5 days!!!) of cards last month for a Macmillan coffee morning and one had stitching...lucky ol' me lol.

I've used Snowball Silly Snowman...

I printed Snowball in the bottom left corner and coloured him with my Copics. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of white card, trimmed it and scalloped the bottom with a punch before stitching it to the main card.

I added a tiny pom pom as a snowball I'd bought ages ago when I was home on holiday.

I tied a piece of  Baker's Twine at the top and stuck the bottom of the sentiment down with a foam pad so it was slightly raised. I was really pleased with the end result and more so when both cards were sold!!

Coen is 5 months old tomorrow!!!! Thought it was time to switch from weeks to months lol. He's developing a great little personality...has started taking sips from a cup and last week tasted his first home made food. He LOVES butternut squash and apple sauce...banana isn't a favourite yet lol. 

Now I must warn you...the following video will make you smile if not chuckle!!

I hinted last week that I might have something up my sleeve to share....well the time has come. We have a new release on the 15th and I think you might just love it! The DT are working really hard with their images to bring you fabulous inspiration and we have not one but 2 Guest Designers bringing their talents to the release! So put the date in your diary and join us for some fun.

Catch ya later x

Video is fablous, it's a Grandma thing.
I've been called many names in my life but the best one is Grandma.
