The Saga of Scary Monster

Unbelievable!!  Totally unbelievable.  Hi everyone, welcome to my little corner of blogland.  You may need to check out last nights post here to get some references but basically me and Scary Monster were clipping along at the trot last night.  You know that patchwork paper is a lot of sewing.  I'm glad I went real.  I am sure if I had resorted to the pen then I would have run out of inspiration before the end.  Anyway, this morning feeling buoyed by the success I decided to make some cards.  Me and SM.  Would you believe SM jammed on the second stitch!   Arrggggg.  OK, deep breath, sort it out, try again.   OK, now we are cooking, I mean sewing.   Thread break!!   Deep sigh.  OK, off again.  Needle break!!  OK, I get the message.  Luckily I had done the bits that show so please forgive my resorting to the glue. 

I liked Darcy's clean style cards she made.  This background is so lovely so why not showcase it.  I have sewn on a piece of DCWV Dots paper and the sentiment is from Art Impressions.

Thanks for dropping by again.  It's a particularly wet and yukky day here in Norway so maybe there will be more, although I really must tidy a little after the explosion of masks and stamps and paints last night.  Maybe me and Scary Monster will be back on speaking terms.  At least I have to fix the needle.  Now where are my spares.....

Have a great day wherever and whatever you choose to do.
