Sew What's New

Morning folks.....yippee we've had 3 days of sunshine in a row...spoilt aren't we but all that rain last week and being marooned on my crafty island has kick started the creative juices...time to share a little something I made while watching the rain running down the window and the wind howling round the eaves inspired by a project over on the Hero Arts Club Blog by Shari Carroll....she is one talented lady and I love her I thought I would take her idea and run with it.....

"Sew What's New"
Gift Card
plasma pocket

an acetate pocket to hold bits and pieces....a gift card or money

Images: Hero Arts...CL 446 Sew Artsy
Papers: Tim Holtz Shabby Vintage Pack
Ribbon: Simply Create
Buttons..snaps and thread from stash
Flowers Prima

If you want instructions how to make this gift can watch Shari's video HERE. The old crafty brain is ticking away.....wouldn't this be a great idea for Christmas Gift cards.
And something else that's new....have you heard the fabulous news.....we have a new kid on the block....a brand new challenge blog dedicated to vintage coming to a neighbourhood near you very soon.....

weekly challenges sponsored by the fabulous Simon Says Stamp... kicking off at the beginning of August and heading up the Design Team as that lovely and mega talented lady....yes the one who can cook sew and craft all at the same time....the one and only ....Linda Elbourne.    I know I will be joining in the fun....well being vintage in could I not.    So why don't you pop over and check out the details...sign up as a follower and be ready to join in the first challenge.
Catch up with you all later.....Hugs Kath xxx
