clean and simple FLT163 sketch challenge

I made this for the clean & Simple Challenge.

The embelishmets are from my local craft store. The card is Canson and I don't remember where the paper is from. The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat and I used a Kaisercraft background stamp on the card and them used perfect pearls for a bit of shimmer, that doesn't show in the photo. The gems are also Kaisercraft.
I machine stiched on the patterned paper and used distress ink.

Craft & Sewing Show Melbourne

I went to the Craft & Sewing Show yesterday. It was a bit disappointing, because I usually like to learn a knew technique or do make & takes so that it's not just a shopping expedition. I really wanted to do the Quilted Japanese Kimono Style Wallet by  Patchwork Mariko Japan, but you couldn't pre-book and all the classes were full. So what can a girl do, I had to check out all the yummy new products and specials!

The good news is the lovely demonstrator at Mariko Japan told me he could come to my place to do a class if I got 5 or more people together. He would charge for the kit plus a little extra - sounds like a great idea. If anyone lives near Brighton, Melb and is interested, leave me a comment.

I have a blog !!!

I have started this blog so that I can enter papercraft (cardmaking) challenges on other blogs. It's not possible to enter some challenges without an URL address - so here I am!

It's a week for firsts - I entered my 1st challenge at Hero Arts last Week, and then my 2nd at Simon Says Stamps, which incredibly I won! I then entered the same card from the SSS challenge in the Sweet Pea Stamps challenge and got a prize from them too! Then yeserday I received a free 3 months subscription from Scrapbook Creations! So I am feeling very lucky! Yay!!!
