Sew cute

Good morning friends,
Happy Tuesday to you all and for those that celebrate Halloween, hope you had fun.
Well here we are with a brand new month, not many left this year......and then also some news. I was invited to be guest designer for November at The Outlaws...Tuesday colour challenge.  These are the colours to use, and the "November novelty twist"  is to use twine.
I was thrilled ...accepted of course...and here is my first card.


 An actual challenge as I had to come up with my own ideas, No DT cards to guide me... Here's what I did.
Paper ...Papermania..different ranges
Image..  Cute dressmaker from The Paper Shelter     coloured with Distress inkapds I love this image, reminded me of when I was younger and my Mom helped me with making my clothes. I did some faux stitching round the edges
I didn't have any twine, but substituted some flate woven ribbon on a diecut cotton reel
Sentiment...computer generated      and finished off with three buttons.

Hope you like it..so pop over and show us what you make.  Have a great week. Now that Halloween is over, I guess it is full steam into Christmas. Take care and have fun.

How sweet is this image and the sentiment even sweeter. The colouring is AWESOME. I need lessons, Ursula. Lol. How nice that it makes you go down memory lane.

And hearty congrats for being on the DT of Outlawz.

Congratulations Ursula!! That is awesome news.
I just love your card - the colouring is fab and the composition of the whole card, super. Yes, sweet memories - I often wonder how many young girls have the privilege of learning from their Mom's, in this hectic life we live now days.
