Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. We did, but it went so fast!
Yay – it’s Friday. For some reason this week has felt like a long week, not that its really been any different to any other. The weather seems to be on the turn for the better with lighter evenings and the tree across the road has its spring blossom. The daffodils are flowering in my back garden too, so its definitely feeling more like spring is around the corner!

I often make projects in between doing other things, running around after the boys, housework, dinner, life in general. I don’t know if I would call it multi-tasking as that makes me sound far too organised lol!
Well last week, I was in the middle of making a thank you card using the Fresh Prints DSP and the Blossom and Pansy Punches. I had paper pierced around the Crumb Cake layer and stuck a mat of Fresh Prints Coastal Cabana spotty design DSP onto it. That was as far as I had got. After I had put the boys in bed one night, I decided to have a “quick” browse on Pinterest. One of the first cards I saw was remarkably similar to the one I was making, except it had stitching around the edges!
I likey was my immediate thought. No sewing machine was my second thought. Another row of paper-piercing was my third thought and after about an hour of hand stitching using the paper-pierced holes my card was completed.
