Noble Squares

Hello Everyone,
Thank you for visiting. Today, I'm hoping that OH will be taking me to a local craft centre to look at fabric. I treated myself to a new sewing machine for my last birthday. The one I had was nearly 40 years old. I am determined to get back into dressmaking. I need a floor length dress for work that isn't a boob tube or spaghetti straps or clingy,clingy. Both my daughter (she's 6ft) struggle to find cheapish dresses that are long enough for us. Found a pattern, now need the fabric!
We're going to take MIL too. She has just started card making. Her favourite kit (at the moment!) is an old member's gift bought from C&C, a kit from Craftwork cards with Candi. At 90 years old, she is making some very pretty cards with it

Today's card
I went for the Square set because I tend to make smaller 6x6 cards. I wonder if the Noble rectangles would have to be posted as a large letter, but I really like them AND Sue's latest release too!

  1. Hi Karen I bought the squares last week as I like 6x6 cards. Had a bit of a play but my efforts are not as good as this wonderful card you have posted. Love the image you have created. Have fun shopping today best wishes Jackie xx

  2. Karen. A great card using your die! Love how you have used that image in the middle. Hazel x

  3. Gorgeous card today, love the picture in the centre. My MIL also makes cards & is far better than me, much more adventurous. I say it's because she's got more time than me but really she's just better at it than me!


  4. Brilliant card, love the image and your fantastic design.
    Good luck with the Fanric buying, look forward to seeing what you make with it.

  6. Hi Karen, I am getting back into sewing again. Haven't made any clothes for years though. I am just on bags and patchwork.
    Love the card. Which digi kit was this? I use serif a lot too but do't recognise this image. Looks a great card

  7. Hi Karen
    Great image and love the minty colour.
    I'm sure that your place of work will be happy that you won't be rocking up in a boob tube lol!
    Hope we are going to see what you create on your machine.
    Have a great weekend.

  8. Hi Karen,
    what a very wonderful creation.
    Lovely colour choice, and wonderful image too.
    Sue's dies sure do help with beautiful card making don't they.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  9. Love this card and the simplicity of it and the lips remind me of Audrey Hepburn (not sure why but it was the first thing I thought of when I saw your post)!! Thank you for your kind words on my post - enjoy the rest of the BH weekend xx GailT xx
