Flowers for a "stitcher"

Hello, and thank you for popping by. I do appreciate it. This is the first time I've scheduled a post. I'm out with OH, MIL and SIL for lunch.

So a real quickie, I have a friend who is a dressmaker. She also does lots of other craft including the most fantastic cakes. For her birthday I made her this card.

It includes crochet flowers from serif Knitty Gritty digikit, "proper" press studs, Sue Wilson daisies, D-Lite vase and "bling"

Here's her "make" from the school days project, a sewing kit in the shape of a satchell

See you Saturday


  1. A beautiful card for your friend, I hope you have had a lovely day out, Hazel x

  2. Hope your day has been amazing.
    Love your beautiful card and your Sewing Kit

  3. Hi Karen,
    what a very lovely card for your fiend.
    I hope she enjoyed her Birthday, as she sounds very creative.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  4. Hi Karen love your card and I bet your friend did too and how lovely to use crochet flowers and 'proper' press studs for a knitter and sewer, that is the beauty of making your own cards xx Hope you had a lovely lunch out with the family - I have scheduled mine for tomorrow as I am at work early tomorrow so fingers crossed as it was an 'epic' fail the last twice even though I have scheduled before so not sure if it is blogger, or user error but would put a bet on it being user error!!! lol xx GailT xx

  5. Hi Karen
    Hope you enjoyed your day out.
    Super card that's just perfect for someone who sows.
    Best wishes.

  6. Hi Karen it is so nice how you have incorporated different crafts into the card for your friend, very inventive, as is her school satchel, such a clever idea. Hope you had a nice day out yesterday, best wishes Jackie x

  7. Hi Karen,
    Love the card and it's perfect for a sewer. The use of press studs is inspired and I also like her sewing kit, it's very useful and beautiful.

  8. Hi Karen,
    What a genius idea combining die cutting and embroidery on a card, how very beautiful and clever!
    How are you getting on with your weaving dies?
