Now I really did think I'd do this with my little sewing machine, but I've had a tidy up and can't quite remember where I put it. So all that you see on this card is faux - I've used a fine black pen for the dots and then just joined them up.
The brown paper was a Primark carrier bag as I popped in yesterday (got a girly summer top for me, two pairs of shorts for Samuel and a fab bargain sweatshirt top / jacket for £2!) and I screwed it up, flattened it out and did the faux stitching bit.
I've added some jute twine from the kitchen drawer and a charm I found in my stash - not got a clue where it came from! Oh, and the image has been coloured with Promarkers and then added to the card with foam pads. Simple!
The weather is beautiful - we've had a trip to Martin Mere (went on the new canoe safari!) and then onto Southport but the boys are slowly working their way through all the Easter Eggs! Pictures from the canoe safari to follow later! And no, we didn't fall in!
