All Stitched up at Lili's Little fairies!

Well, this one took me forever!! I'm not really sure how to pull off the faux stitching look successfully so I decided, in my wisdom, to get my piercing ruler, prick holes all around the edge of the paper and then hand sew. Ha! What a crazy woman!! Anyhoo, t'is done and I'm in no hurry to try it again!
I've used my new dangly heart dies from Memory Box - just how cute are they? I'm trying to cut down on my purchases but every time I visit Lorraine's blog I see a beautiful card with some new scrumptious die on it and I'm sunk! Mrs B, you are very bad for my poor bank balance!!
The papers are Melissa Frances 'C'est La Vie'; the whole pad is filled with scrummy papers :D  The image and sentiment are both LOTV and the flowers are from WOC.

So, this week we'd like to see you use an LOTV image and either real or faux stitching on your card. Simple :D

You may need to sit down for this news. I, chronic over-embellisher that I am,  came top three in the CAS Without Words Easter challenge! I don't even care if I got the sympathy vote - I was over the moon!!

Carrying on with the good news; I am now over half way through this pregnancy! I'm really not a natural and am in no way glowing. I still look decidedly green and my body resembles a mish mash of jabba the hut, Kim Kardashian and Dolly Parton. It so is not pretty. If it's a boy, my daughter wants to call him Dappy Duck.  I think I may have my work cut out :D 

Thank you for visiying me, it makes my day. Big hugs, Jayne xx
