My Favourite Things

Yesterday, on probably the hottest day of the year so far, we ventured over to watch the Battle of Chippenham Civil War reenactment, the action was fab although my heat addled brain may have been helped with a Bob Hale Horrible Histories style voice over!

As well as lots of guns, horses and shouty men, there was also an encampment and nestled amoungst the apothecaries and blacksmiths, there were very talented ladies spinning yarn, including some rather fine linen thread, for sale too at the very cheap (and modern!) price of 30 pence (so I purchased 2 lots :D)

and this is a card that I made using it - as it is my new favourite thing, it fits exactly with this week's Shabby Tea Room Challenge of 'My Favourite Things' - the card also has some of my other favourite things - patterned paper, paper flower, hand stitching, button twine and seam binding - lots to choose from!

Paper/Stickers - October Afternoon, Little Yellow Bicycle
Image - Etsy
Die - Sizzix
Ribbon/Twine/Button/Seam binding - The Ribbon Girl
Flower - Hobbycraft
Rub ons - Doodlebug
Ink - Clearsnap, Letraset Promarkers
Other - Peg

and may I just say a huge thank you to Katie for featuring my cards today - you can browse her brilliant blog here :)
