I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #124

This is my DT card for this week's challenge on SECRET CRAFTER SATURDAY CHALLENGE which this week is set by ME!!!! I have chosen a theme of:-

PATCHWORK BACKGROUND

I chose this theme as I had the idea to use different DP and stitch around them like quilting. I cut the papers and layered then pierced around them and hand-stitched. Took a while but so pleased with the result.

This week is our first challenge with our 3 new teamies. Take a lookey at the CHALLENGE BLOG to see the wonderful creations they and the rest of the team have come up with and to join us.

Hi Jane,
'Helo!' I'm so thrilled to be joining you at Secret Crafters DT! I just love your card. The image is so sweet, with the daffodils. Is that a nod to St David's Day, yesterday? I always love purple & those papers, with the stitching, look fabulous.
