Don't forget you can also leave us a tip in the comments section to be in the running for the 'tippers' prize too!

This week Limited Runs Digi's gave us a few images to use, but I fell in love with the Freebie they have on their site at the moment.......isn't he beautiful - and you should see the sentiments to go with him!!!

I tried a new technique here too - painting with bleach, it didn't quite work as I'd envisaged - the Kraft card wasn't quite dark enough. I added bits of colour with my wonderful new Prisma's and then went over bits with a putty eraser - makes him look a bit furry me thinks!

Of course I added some stitching to my card for Anne's tutorial.
(and followed one of her tips when I messed up at the top of this piece...hence the flower!)

Some actual stitching done on the machine and some faux stitching (well, hole'ing really) done with my most bestest, favoritist NON card crafting product ever............

A sewing 'Tracing Wheel'

This is not a pic of mine but looks the same - mine came in a little sewing kit I picked up in Sainsburys many moons ago - and since I've started using it on cards I've picked up a few more kits!
