All Stitched Up!

Good morning all - can't believe that it's Friday again already! Mind you, it has seemed a very long week at times.... We've had the builders in all week as our bathroom is having a very long-overdue makeover and has been stripped back to bare brickwork!  Yesterday I thought they were taking part in a Guinness World Record challenge of 'how many builders can you fit in a bathroom' - with a plumber, joiner and two plasterers! Sigh.  And it's a very long day when you have no loo! I just keep thinking "It'll all be worth it"!

Anyway, as it's Friday it's time for a new challenge over at Totally Papercrafts.  And can I just say a big warm welcome to our new DT members at TPC! This week our lovely Susan has challenged us to get 'Stitched Up' - so we want to see some stitching (either real or faux) on your card.

We're sponsored this week by A Day for Daisies, and I've used one of their images 'Mum Girl' 

I've coloured her with promarkers.  The backing papers are from First Edition 'Summer Breeze' - with added stitching of course! 
The flowers are from Wild Orchid, with Poppystamps 'meadow leaf' die cuts. The corners are from Spellbinders 'Persian Motifs' with added pearls. 
Hope you like it! 
So do join in with us at Totally Papercrafts this week! 
Back soon, Kim x
