Love love love the stitches card. Brilliant. Something I'd actually do (I love to sew on my projects). Can't get enough of it. Gotta Pin that one.


The card using the Strampunk Spells collection is so beautiful! I love everything about it and have saved it to my favorites so I can make one for myself. Beautifully done! Wishing you a happy day!
