Sew Happy For You

Hi Crafters,

Well after yesterdays rain I'm hoping for something a little drier today. It doesn't help my mood or creative juices when the weather is so dismal.
I'm sharing the second of my sewing themed cards that I made using the wonderful Hobby House Toppers - Needles & Pins.

Image Topper - The Hobby House, Needles & Pins
Paper - Little Claire Designs
Buttons and Ribbon - Molly Blooms Collection
Sentiment Stamp - Magazine Freebie
Stitching Stamp

Another quick make, anyone would think I had a deadline to meet :)
Love these toppers and I was lucky enough to win eight sets in a challenge recently, so you will be seeing a lot more of these in the future.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Allsorts Challenge - #238 Buttons
Craft-Dee Bowz - Sept. ATG + Bow

Thanks for visiting and for all your lovely comments on my previous posts too, I love to read them and appreciate you taking the time to do so. 
Happy Crafting Everyone!
