Up, Up And Away

Happy Saturday to you all. I have a little bit of stitching for you today. I had a bee in my bonnet about wanting to stitch this The Greeting Farm stamp – don’t ask me why but it was an itch I just had to scratch LOL! Now I’ve done it I’m not so sure about it LOL!

The paper is Cosmo Cricket Early Bird and I’ve used a Kraft card base, probably one of my favourite combinations at the moment – oh I love my Kraft card – Tee Hee!

The heart sentiment is a doodle in the style of the TGF stamp with a Prismacolor Premier Illustration markers and then layered up on a button with the stamped ‘Be Free’. The crochet lace is from Quixotic Paperie and I’ve cut it in half and threaded it with some ribbon.

Right I’m off to see if I can hunt down the parcel that Royal Mail was supposed to be redelivering to me yesterday, and we didn’t even get fresh snow for them to get stuck in. Wish me luck it might be a long hunt!

Have a lovely Saturday

    Well and truly beautifully scratched I'd say Kim 😀 and I love it, it's such a great idea and looks perfect. I'm a bit addicted to the kraft card myself, it looks fantastic with your CC paper. Hope you tracked your parcel down, we haven't had any post for nearly a week so I might have to do the same as you. Hope you're well sweetie. Big hugs, Chris x
