Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!

Hi Everyone!

Ok, no laughing...I finally busted out my little Jenome Mini sewing machine.  It's been sitting in the box for over a year!  Yikes I even had to find tutorials on You Tube since I am clueless when it comes to sewing...lol 


Three tutorials later and I am sewing on cards. Don't look to close or you might get dizzy, my lines are far from straight. I couldn't bring myself to throw away my not sew perfect pieces so they are on my card...lol 


It's Sunday and time for our new challenge at OSAAT,  the theme this week is "Favorites".  I got to use a Barbara Jensen digi called "Shy Girl".   She will be available in the store as soon as all the creators finish uploading all their digis to the new and improved StitchyBear Digital Stamps.

I used all my favorite tools and goodies to create my Tri Shutter card.  My most favorite things when I create are my Copics and my Cuttlebug.  I love, love my Copics and it just wouldn't be one of mine if it didn't have some sort of Nestie or embossing on it.  I love to use my punches to create my own flowers too. 



When I return from Girl Scout Camp with Maddie I will enter my card into the following challenges:
Hope you can join in the fun at OSAAT, our Random winner will get 3 digis from Digis With Attitude.


Thanks for stopping by, bunches of hugs

Love your pink shy girl card which must have taken you an age to do. My favourites are dies and embossing too - never make a card without one or other. Hazel x

This is a lovely card Marjo, I've never made one shaped like this before but it is a great design, your image is such a cutie.

I had one of those little sewing machines in the box for about 3 years, freebie for subscribing to a magazine and it was broke when I finally busted it out :( never been brave enough to sew paper on my good sewing machine, must have a try (one day) Will have to dig it out from the cupboard under the stairs first though LOL

love Mandy xxx
