Sew Proud!

It's been a busy time lately and not much time for blogging but at least I have managed to craft :)  

I have made the card I am showing today for Amy who has just received her grade for her uni course, she has graduated with a First!  We are both so very proud of her!  Amy has been studying Costume for Performance at London College of Fashion and we will be attending the graduation ceremony on Tuesday 16th July, it is to be held at the Royal Festival Hall on the South bank of the Thames so of course such an event requires a new outfit, so it was off to the Trafford Centre this week and a new dress and shoes have been purchased :)  Really looking forward to the day.  

The card has been made using some Tim Holtz backing paper which I have sewn round using Amy's old sewing machine.  I die cut the mannequin and then inked and stamped it using Distress ink and a Christy Tomlinson stamp (Distressed Quilt)  I printed off some free sewing card downloads and then distressed them and added buttons and bakers twine.  I used my pc and printer to make the sentiment and stamped round the edge using a faux stitching stamp.  I then knotted some printed ribbon in the corner.

Well that's it for now but I do have a few more cards and pieces that I have made to show you but they will have to wait now until I am back from a couple of days in London.
