A Stitch In Time

Good morning folks, before I get on to the latest Polka Doodles challenge, I would like to say a huge thanks to everyone that entered my blog candy and to my new followers too. I haven't forgotten about posting the winners, I've just been up to my eyes in work this week having got behind because of my nasty chest infection. I'll be back tomorrow with the news so do keep an eye out for it.
Today we not only have a new challenge for you over at Polka Doodles with the most fantastic prizes (first prize is a £50 Goodie Bag!!!) but Nikky will be on Create and Craft at 10am and 4pm today to launch the gorgeous new CD which is called Cherry Blossom Lane and has the most adorably cute characters ever (those who know me will see why I love it when I can show you my samples) so do watch if you can or set the recorder.
The challenge this week has been chosen by Lou as her son will be 20 years old in a few days so the theme is
A Birthday At Christmas Card Or One For A Young Adult
I've made a card for one of my nieces with a birthday on 31 December as all the other birthdays this month -and we have quite a few- are either over 50 or less than 10!
Holly loves quilting so I've made a sewing themed collage style card for her.

All of the elements and papers on the card are from the Sundae of Seasons CD. I covered the card blank with some of the pretty ribbon stripe paper then added a blue panel of the same design trimmed at the top with a Papermania scallop cut and emboss border die.
I cut out the sewing machine topper with another Papermania die and hand cut a mat for this to make it pop.
To finish I added a die cut text panel and cut out the gorgeous pin cushion (I just love this and wish I had one like it lol) and some bobbins then added them with foam tape.

Have a great day and a lovely weekend and keep warm!
Fliss xx
