Ooops! Another Forgotten Stamp!!

Hello, everyone out there in blogland...its been freezing cold here today & kept looking as thought it was gonna rain, but it only spat for a few minutes which is good...
Spent the afternoon watching QVC, don't usually order crafty stuff off there, but decided to order a new stitching thingimy...with having arthritis I find it really difficult to sew on cards & usually only faux stitch, I'm hoping this new fandangle thing will help & you should be seeing loadsa stitching on my cards real soon lol...

Todays card I made, because whilst looking for a different stamp, I found this one & realised I'd had it ages & not even inked it up oopsss! shhh don't tell Nige hehe!!

Hi Shell

I too have this image. I got it from Ally Pally earlier this year.

It has been living in my Christmas stamps drawer and has just come out for going on some of my Christmas cards.

I hope your "sewing thingy" works for you.

Love Jules xx

Great image to use Shell, love it. I have a draw full of stamps and only inked half of them, that's cos there's so much digi around now. I have ordered the stitching gadget too - we'll see how it goes eh? B xxxx

Thanks for the heads up on the stitchy thingy, I went to have a look-see on the web. It looks really cool. I can't wait to see what you do with it. I love your card. I'm trying to work out how you made it, but I can't. It looks really hard.
Have a great day hon, hugs, Teresa xxx
