A Little Something.....

Good Morning.... Jenny here :0)

No Prizes for guessing which companies stamps I've been playing with for todays blog post!!!
We're all bathing in Wplus9 yumminess here at Make the Day Special 
as I expect many of you are too :0)

I dived straight into the Blanket Stitch Blooms and Dies and had fun making up some flowers...

Blanket stitch takes me back to my early school days, I think it was the 
second or third stich I ever learnt in sewing club and I definitely remember sitting and carefully 
stitching all the way round my Girl Guide campfire blanket!!

It's not so time consuming to make these blooms and I found that stamping the
stitching first and then filling in the coloured layers was the easiest, before die-cutting
 them out using the method I highlighted on this post.
I love the two part sentiments in this set which are geared up for
Get Well Soon cards although I think this sentiment could be used 
for other occasions too :0)

I also managed to finish off my Mini Card set from last weeks post, I made a small box in 
the end and decorated the lid....

... I was really pleased with the end result and they were gratefully received too :0)

Thanks for stopping by

Love these blanket stitch blooms and a fabulous design!
I have a similar memory, stitching around a sewing bag in blanket stitch.

Liking the dimension on that card with the lifted corner. Your card box is fabulous too.
