Sew and Stitch

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Here is just one of the projects I have been working on today.  I managed to get a lot done today and not only crafting.  As I am off to Harrogate tomorrow for the day and will be meeting up with a couple of my crafting friends I got all upstairs cleaned and did some washing so poor hubby isn't left to do it all!  Aren't I so considerate?

Over on Facebook in Mad Crafters Gigglers the daily challenge set by yesterdays winner is Dress Form and torn paper.  This is my entry, it is just for fun and the winner chooses the next days challenge.


Recipe

6 x 6 Kraft square card
First layer is from Papermania Happy Days paper pack which I have distressed the edges with my paper distresser and dusted over with PanPastels
The torn layer is scraps from by bit box which is from Graphic 45 and I have embossed with button embossing folder and then distressed the edges and dusted over with PanPastels to show the buttons.
The sewing machine Dress form and sentiment are from my Stamp Set from Stampography which I have decoupaged. The reel of cotton stamp is one I found in my box.  
I have added an assortment of buttons from my stash as well as the scissor.  The big button I have threaded with Baker's twine and tied into a bow.



Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
