Sooo, today I have had a day of sewing.  I've been making my eldest niece some shorts.  They aren't finished yet (I need to go get some buttons tomorrow before I can finish them off), but I will share them with you when they are (hopefully tomorrow).  In the meantime I would like to share with you a couple of my slightly insomniac cards from last night - I didn't stay up too late, but I did stay up later than normal, but I had the idea in my head for these cards, so I wanted to get them done.

This is my first:

I don't know where the idea came from, but I had it in my head all day yesterday.

I made this card using up some scraps of paper from the LOTV cakes and candles pad.

I hand drew the numbers and the stars, cut them out and then added faux stitching to the edges.

I then attached these to a large 8x8 inch card using sticky fixers for dimension.  I also added faux stitching around the edge of the card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Happy Crafting!
