Intrigued by my post title ? All will be revealed later !
There's a sketch for this week's Simply Less is More blog challenge, it's a simple and classic layout but we are asked to stick to it exactly, no different orientations or moving around the elements.
Here's my entry
I haven't entered the LIM challenges in quite some time, what with being away from home and my stash a lot recently and having lots to do when I have been home, there just hasn't been time to enter many challenges.
When I saw this week's sketch an idea for a card popped into my head, ideal as I needed to get an Anniversary card made anyway.
I used a flower stamp from a set of freebie stamps I acquired recently - stamped using Stampin'Up! Midnight Muse ink - to stamp randomly on the centre panel. I mounted the stamped layer on a very slightly larger piece of Midnight Muse cardstock to give it a narrow border. I created the sentiment on my computer and cut it out using a pennant die by Spellbinders, before attaching using foam pads. As a finishing touch I added a couple of gems to the topmost flower and three gems underneath the stamped layer.
Now, to the reason for my post title. I have my 86 year old Dad staying with me for a few weeks, he's an avid papercrafter and cardmaker (and a whizz on the computer !) and we've been having so much fun crafting together whilst he's been here. As I've been doing a fair bit of sewing lately, he was curious to see if he could master my gorgeous new sewing machine and have a go at making something himself (never having used any sewing machine before, I might add !)
So, this morning found him busy getting acquainted with the machine.....
... and within a short time, he'd finished off these lovely projects.... how cool is that ?
I'm so Blessed to have my Dad with me and doubly so as we have so many interests in common. I shall be really sad when he goes home again in a few days, but will be looking forward to his next visit when we can maybe plan some more adventurous projects to work on together.
Thanks for dropping by to see today's creations, hope you've enjoyed your visit.
