cherish ... U

Not a lot of crafting going on this week, but sheltering from yesterday's storms, I fled to my safe harbour (my craft room ... lol) and produced this! Still loving the new Kraftin' Kimmie stamps, so went for one of those rather than dirtying my new Christmas Magnolia's, WOJ's, SN's & SK's!! Yes, I know, Christmas is fast approaching and I seem to have acquired quite a collection of Christmas stamps. I really should 'get around to it', but for now....

The sketch: Stamp Something.

Other challenges:

New/neglected stashCreative Inspirations. I used a new stamp and old papers.

StitchingQuixotic Challenges. I have machine stitching.

Patterned paper: Theme Thursday.

Circles: Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. I have a circle in my brad!
Papers & chipboard 'U': Prima ~ Steel Toe Mary Jane Collection.

Cherish sticker: Making Memories.

Brad: Basic Grey.

Flowers: from stash.

Image: Kraftin' Kimmie ~ Clara. Coloured with copics.

I always show my finished pieces to my other half. His comment to this one was: why the U? I'm hoping therefore that my crafting pals 'get it'. Kind of defeats the object if you have to explain it! LOL!

Thank you for looking.


having a {me} day.

An amazing card Chrissie - so much stitching - makes me regret having just stowed my machine back in the cupboard. Love all the elements and the fact that you've made it fit so many challenges.
