Needles and Pins and a right good workshop with Leonie

I've had such fun making this card tonight. In fact I have had a fun day all round. I went to the workshop I mentioned yesterday that Leonie was holding.
She is just like she is on the TV-so friendly I felt like I already known her for ages. I didn't get to finish all the pieces we managed to pack into the day - so I will post those hopefully tomorrow when I get them sorted out. I've got the day off as I knew I would be tired after a long day today - up at 6am and not back home til 6pm.

To get back to my card. I have used a free background paper and image from Free Vintage Digital Stamps blog. I am just in heaven on that blog and it is all free. I took the background paper into MCS to give it a green tint and green faded border. The little tape measure, needle pack and thread were free rubber stamps from Crafty Individuals with the order I received this weekend (what new year resolution??). I am so pleased with them, there were loads of other ones too. The sentiment is from a Sam Poole stamp set.
I'd like to enter this card into:-
Allsorts challenge- needles and pins
Auds sentiments challenge- use the word LOVE
Digital Tuesday challenge - a romantic card

You kept that one a secret Lynn, how lucky are you to have a day with "our Leoni". I always enjoy shows when she is the presented, she is so natural and laid back.

So I guess now you've crafted with celebs you'll not be coming to any more of my classes !!!!!!

On a serious note, a really great card for our theme this week.

Thanks so much for joining us our Needles and Pins theme at Allsorts this week, good luck and hope to see you again.
