More Trouble !

Good Afternoon All

My poor old computer is not having a good time at the moment. Graham spent ages last night trying to make it perform faster and he has done a fantastic job. Now I have just knocked a cup of coffee over the key board. I did mop it up pretty quickly and left it on its side for a while and I am now typing with my fingers crossed that nothing else goes wrong.

I haven't made many cards today as life seems to be taking over a bit at the moment. I have managed to make one card to show though -

The image is one that I bought yesterday. It is by Woodware and I just had to have it. I used up a selection of off cuts of paper and card from my stash to paper piece the boat and make the matts. Blue buttons and ribbons were also leftovers. To finish off the card I added lots of 'pretend stitches' around the matts to match the stitching on the image.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:

Crafting for all Seasons - Buttons and Bows - 4.2.13
Jellypark Challenges - Button Up - 7.2.13

Enjoy the rest of your day
Hayley and Graham
