25 Years!


of wedded bliss for a good friend, i made her this card! idea came from the latest Sew Somerset magazine.....i stamped some text onto calico, put some muslin over the top added the felt heart and tied a knot in the left over muslin and machine stitched it altogether...then added some hand stitched crosses with some rubbed on corners....and the last part was the little tag inked with some Tim Holtz inks and stamped a 25 onto it.

Thanks for looking and any comments....Jen xx
