Milton

Afternoon all.
Well the household is literally 'bracing' itself for tomorrow, as amongst other things the eldest is having a fixed brace fitted - and he (nor the rest of us) are not looking forward to it. His biggest problem is that he was told he wouldn't be able to eat for 4 hours, so he thinks he will die of starvation.
Aside from that, I have just started preparing my paper piecing class for next week, and thought I'd share the first card with you all. The stamp is by Wild Rose Studio, and just seemed ideal for the technique. The fake brads were made by cupping some circles cut with the 1/2in Woodware circle punch (the yellow one), and the backing paper is from Craft Creations.
I'd like to enter it into;

C.R.A.F.T. - fancy floral
Creative Inspirations - Christmas in September
Creative Card Crew - bloomin' marvellous
One Stitch At A Time - anthing goes

and finally

Hope you like it, and I'll be back soon.
Big Hugs Sharon xx

  3. Hi Sharon, Love your card, the fake brads are a great idea. Re fixed brace, both mine had fixed braces recently, one last month and one last week, its not been too bad just needed nurofen for a couple of days. Funny my boy thought he would die of starvation too!! Karen xx

  10. Such a cute card ! Fake brads are fantastic,you can buy them in the UK and they are a great thing to have, although sometimes fiddly to add to the card.
    Thankyou for sharing with us at OSAAT for the anything goes challenge.
