A stitch in time.....

I am in love with my new sewing machine - small that it is
 - it is so easy to use and takes up very little space...
..I gave it it's first try yesterday and loved loved loved it !!

Over at LCI the challenge is 'Use your new stash' - I have used my new sewing machine !! , ribbon from Dies to Die for , stamp from LOTV.

I love the ribbon too - it is so scrumptious - I came to buy some more yesterday and it is out of stock :(

Eleanor has a school buddy called Anna - who she looks out for in the playground and dinner hall etc - and she absolutely adores her.
Can you believe it's her birthday on Sunday - and it's mine too - bizarre how often this happens.....I have 5 friends (or friends children) who share my birthday !!!

So - did I tell you I got a sewing machine for Christmas - and I love love love it !!
Here is my creation for Anna - I hope there is enough pink and glitter for a 5 year old girl :)

Backing paper - SU
Ribbon - Dies to Die For
Image - LOTV
Number Stamp on balloon - LCI
Coloured in using my Promarkers
Glittered the dress
Glossy Accented one balloon and the black shoes
