My oldie for Saturday

Hello Everyone, thanks for visiting and if you leave a comment I do value your feedback. The weather here is very sunny but mighty cold I expect.  I say expect because I haven't ventured out since Tuesday because I've had a really nasty, heavy head cold. But (fingers crossed) I think I am over the worst of it.
Today's oldie is a card that I have made several versions of for my crafty friends. Those that knit have a page from a knitting pattern (photocopied), quilters have a paper pieced background and "sewists" have a an image of a dress pattern! The shaker elements are sequins, beads, tiny safety pins, press studs etc. with appropriate embellishments
The sentiment inside this particular one read
"I knit, therefore I am armed with scissors, two very sharp sticks and some very strong yarn. So don't mess with me"
I'm going to have a very quiet week end to see if I can shake this cold off completely - I don't want it to end up as a naty chest infection!

  2. Hi Karen,
    what a very superb card, and such a very superb design too.
    This is so fab for a person that sews or kinits as it would be very much appreciated I'm sure.
    I love all your crafty dies used they are fab.
    I had that cold before Christmas and it sure was a nasty one.
