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 #130

This is my DT card for this week's challenge on SECRET CRAFTER SATURDAY CHALLENGE which this week is set by the lovely BEATE. She has chosen a theme of:-

STITCHING

We want to see real or faux stitching somewhere on your creations.

It was an excuse for me to get my sewing machine out again and have a play - still learning but getting better I think LOL. I used new papers designed by the lovely TRACIE which are on sale now in the SECRET CRAFTER SHOP.

Take a lookey at the CHALLENGE BLOG to see the other girlies creations and to join us.
