Now for something a little different - well for me anyway!

OK having a week of extremes here! Friday was all deep, dark and mysterious, today it's all pretty and cutesie!! Still, I'm not gonna be accused of being a one trick pony - LOL!

It was a very dear friend of mines birthday yesterday and she's a superb cardmaker which means that the pressure was on me. Now whilst I know that she likes what I do, I also know that she doesn't like a lot of the images I use, so I'm really hoping that she'll like this one!

 I printed  and coloured the image multiple times and then decoupaged it. The edge of the image has been inked with Distress Inks prior to mounting on card. I've distressed the designer papers and then used my new Sew Easy Tool from We R Memory Keepers to add some stitching to the papers. I have to say I think I'm in love with this little tool despite my initial reservations.
