It's a Patchy One!

Jane set this week's brilliant dare; want you to be inspired by patchwork and make a patchwork looking card. Great chance to use up scraps of off cuts - or buy some new papers if needs be! Any theme as long as it is patchwork inspired.

And here is mine - Made for J's Mum's Birthday:)

MME papers and bracket, Scenic Route rub ons, Doodlebug ribbon, Papermania flowers, brads and eyelets, inking and hand stiching.

The boys also made cards for their Nan - using postcards that they snaffled from the Cinema;

Joah made this;
and Jared made this (his choice of postcard!);
TFL :)

I would pay a lot of money to be there when your mother in law opens the cards from the boys. Ah, they remind me of mine! They have shown great artistic flair. And your card is just heart achingly wonderful. So many perfect little details. I just don't know how you do it!

Great cards. It's awesome you got your boys to play along. I liked your bunny image that was on the Daring Card Makers DT showcase today, but couldn't find that card on your blog to tell me who, what, where! Your blog is great, glad I came anyway.


Have a great weekend!
