The Rag Trade

Nearly forgot my High Hopes post, thats because I've got my head down trying to get ahead of myself for the weekend away.
So you have to use Fabric on your card, now this was a real challenge for me, I don't sew, although I do own a sewing machine but he's called Damon and doesn't like me so he's gathering dust upstairs hidden in the bedroom. So if I don't sew what are the chances of me finding fabric, so I begged some off my Sister and she had this fab green check stuck.
I did have issues with the pinking shears that won't cut anymore, really shouldn't use them on cardstock and my flower I needed more practice but time was running.
Of course now thinking about I could have used felt!
So I used this fab stamp by High Hopes designed by Dustin Pike, the papers are My Minds Eye and thats faux stitching.
Now don't forget to pop over to the blog and check out the rest of the Divas I'm sure they've made a better job of this challenge than I did.
