Hello all, I hope this post finds you all doing well tonight.
I have been having lots of fun today-I got all my jobs done good and early and then treated myself to the whole afternoon in my craft shed and refused to feel guilty at all!!
The first thing I did was to finish off this card-I started it the other day but even though I was following a sketch somehow things just didn't seem to go so well. I figured the best thing was to walk away for a bit. When I went back to it today it seemed to go much better, but can you spot the deliberate mistake??  I did make a bit of a blunder and was very cross with myself-as I can't sew for buttons I thought I'd try some faux stitches. It went ok on the smaller section paper and then whoops, I went and did the stitches on the main panel round the backing card and not the paper!!!  Do you think anyone will notice???

I am following a sketch over at Sketch Saturday and the image is from Pink Gem called Bathtime Emma. She's coloured with my Promarkers, as are the flowers at the bottom and the buttons are from my stash- I think they were from a Dovecraft pack.
The papers were bought loose from my local craft shop which has sadly closed down now.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Sketch Saturday challenge - week 323
A Gem of a Challenge # 126 - Stitching real or faux
Crafty Girls challenge  # 25- anything goes
Inky Impressions challenge # 173 - anything goes

Well, I'm off now to get my nice cosy PJs on as it feels a little cold tonight.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, wishing you all a lovely weekend - to all my UK friends let's keep our fingers crossed for lots of lovely sunshine. Until next time.
