This is my entry for this week's Stamps and Smiles challenge. The challenge is to follow the sketch provided (see below).

I haven't given much time to crafting this week as my OH has been on holiday and we have been enjoying time as a family - mostly spent in the garden making the most of this great weather.
However, while he was visiting his Mum today today to wish her a Happy Mothers' Day, I thought I would use the time to make a card.

This is my first attempt at using my sewing machine to make a card, and I had great fun!

I've used a Penny Black stamp and coloured it using the OMS technique with a pack of very cheap pencils - I don't know how long the colour will last but I was pleased with the results (it looks brighter in real life!). For the rest of the card I have used Die Cuts with a View cardstock, Anitas Ribbon and nestabilities.
Thank you for looking.
