I Made a Card!!

Hello there,

Ok so don't faint but I actually made a card! Actually I made a few but I will share the others on another day. 
I am so behind with my cards at the moment, but my daughter needed a few thank you cards for her teachers as she leaves 6th form college in a few days and will be starting University in September.  I made a few variations of this card in different colours, using up bits and pieces I had on my craft desk. ( Also had to make a male thank you card but I'm not sharing it as I wasn't happy with it.)

I love this stamp set from Waltzingmouse - Paris Nouveau, it has some lovely sentiments in it as well as some great Labels 25 compatible stamps too.  These scraps of aqua papers were already laying on my desk so I went with the colour and also added some aqua seam binding and lace as well as a few dew drops too.

  My husband recently made me a bow maker out of a piece of wood and some dowel so I am trying out different ways of tying my bows at the moment.

 Seam binding is still my preference for crafting as it is so flexible and versatile, and of course so cheap with so many gorgeous colours too. It works really well with the bow maker as it it so soft.

Stamps - Waltzingmouse
Seam Binding, lace and dew drops - Pretty Little Ribbon Shop
