My buddy Blu

this is my card for the challenge over at stampinfortheweekend. They always come up with such great themes and just what i need to get the creative juices flowing. It also gave me the perfect excuse to try out my new HighHopes stamp which i love.

papers are from MyMindsEye, Everyday Tango. Velvet ribbon was in the cheapie basket at the Range so that had to come home with me....well it looked sad and loney!

flower brads were out of my stash and the charm is from ebay, i got little boys and girls, how cute are they. there are some lovely charms over at and also some really cute digi stamps.

back to my card... i finished it off with some fake stitches. very simple to do, just use a pokey tool to make two rows of alternate dots then join them up with zig lines useing a fine liner pen.

i used the left over paper to decorate the inside of the card.....waste not, want not. as my old mum used to say.
