A Stitch In Time

I snagged this freebie image from Bugaboo a week or two back and printed it (almost immediately!) and added the sentiment under Stella as I thought it about time I made some more thank you cards. Because you just never know when you'll need them.

I've used the Bugaboo challenge which is:

A Stitch In Time plus Autumn Colours

I've used various papers from my bits box - majority are Funky Hand from Now That's Funky which I've corner rounded and doodled a fine black line around.

The image has been coloured with Promarkers and I've used part of a real tape measure, held onto the card by a big chunky brad. The tape measure is from a little sewing kit that I bought just for the different glass headed pins, and as the kit was only 99p, I bought two! Knowing full well that I can cut up things from the kit and not worrying about it!

  • Papers: Now That's Funky from Funky Hand
  • Image: Bugaboo, coloured with Promarkers
  • Everything else: My stash
