Go and have a look at

the challenge is "A stitch in time" and they would love to see stitching on your projects this week, real or faux .
Well I have gone all out and stitched properly.... 
(took me two days.. not 48 hours, that would be daft, just a few of hours over two days)
It looks so much nicer, although I think if I had a sewing machine then I could have just wizzed round the edges with a cross stitch which would have looked just as nice..
(rolls eyes)
 but I don't have a sewing machine so hand sewing it is.
(Toni... that isn't being added to the
OOOO look there's bob... 
your now thinking I am totally mad...but I am not...just half..
Bob is the wooden Pinocchio that Paul made..
He sits on the PC table... no bother at all really.
This is a 15cm square white card, then I have used Purple miri card as backing paper, 
then layered my sewing on top. then I used a Mandala
for your info..
A Mandala is a Sanskrit word that means circle.
full of useless info me...rofl

I am also entering this card into a couple more challenges, I usually do one card for each
but thought I would combine today 
One stitch at a time - Anything Goes
Allsorts Challenge  - Free and Easy July

Anyway thanks for stopping by xx

LOL at the comment about a sewing machine...I've got one and never use it (probably because it is buried under a ton of stuff in the 'craftroom').

This is a beautiful card Claire and the stitching is lovely.

Hi Claire, it's me again.
I'd like to share a blog award with you (piccy & details over on my blog) - you have been producing such lovely work which is a super achievement considering the very limited supplies you have access to.
