Stampavie and Wild Orchid Challenges

Today I only have one card to share – just as well because I am not getting that much time to craft with the back pain I am having, not even the morphine has been helping.  I just hope they can get it sorted quickly, I’m fed up now.  Enough whinging Bev!!  On to today’s card.

The challenges are: Stampavie – Die Cuts, and Wild Orchid Challenge is Stitch it up.  Two nice and easy challenges so I hope you will join us this week. 

This is another of the cards The Hobby House commissioned (still using those Mistletoe papers, I’ve got one more to blog I think).


I just adore the new Sarah Kay stamps, and have found it really hard to find a favourite they are all so stunning.


I stitched with gold thread for a change, really like the effect.  Lots of Diamond Stickles going on here too, on the edges of the paper, the image and also on the flowers.

  4. Stunningly beautiful card Bev, simply brilliant. Love the stitching; your patience must be endless! I hope you get something sorted for your back soon - as a fellow sufferer, you have every sympathy. What's really annoying with mine is that the docs know what the problem is, they are just refusing to treat it until there is no other option - so it's been 12 years of pain so far. Hugs, Sxx
