Not a lot to show for three hours effort


Hello all who are kind enough to pass by this way. I'm hurriedly putting this post together whilst I run a bath in the background (which gives me approx. 15 mins before it'll start to overflow), to ensure I enter this card into the latest Monday Mojo challenge on time.

I have spent a delightful day, relaxing at a local crop and, for a change, actually spending the time crafting. I had taken along the sketch for the challenge and in a mere three hours, I managed to make this card. It's a good job I don't mass produce these things lol. Mind, in that time, I did hand sew around the edge of the patterned paper as well as cut out and sew together the fabric flower. The only thing I did on my return home was to print out the Birthday sentiment and attach.

It's been a gorgeous start of the weekend, weather wise too, sun and blue sky, if not always warm. Plus, due to a significant birthday of one of the girls later in the month, cake has been involved in the day's activities. Pink, glittery confection I may add too. So all in all, though I wasn't very productive (and to be honest, who ever is when they go out cropping or crafting), I had a lot of fun.

Hope you are all enjoying yourselves too, wherever you may be. Pxx
