Well I survived the first week back at school and my classroom is starting to have a resemblance of order to it so I guess the new year has well and truly started.

Freshly made sketches have a new sketch. Here it is
  and my take on it. Once again I've turned the sketch side ways.
I initially stitched a 'one' in the top right corner but it didn't turn out too well so I just cut it off, hence the strange shape of the topper. To make the card look more balanced I added the little tartan bow with the faces.
Pattern: Balloons: Ann's paper art balloons
             Sentiment: Unknown
Card stock: 160gsm in white
                   Oatmeal is an upscaled calendar (I love the colour so couldn't just discard it, besides it's a great quality too)
Tartan ribbon
Thread: all colour codes and brands unknown
Tartan bow: Scrap book embellish


  1. So much talent in one place. Embroidery and cardmaking. What a beautiful marriage of two wonderful worlds. This is absolutely gorgeous and I hope the recipient realizes what a beautiful keepsake it is. Thanks for playing along with my sketch at FMS this week!

  2. Beautiful card and such a cool take on the sketch! Your stitching is fabulous! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  3. Love those cute little faces and the lovely tartan to have your embroidery really shine, Glenda!!!! So lovely!!!!!
    Have a great week and enjoy the year with the little ones at school!!!

  4. I love that you didn't like something and just snipped it off and it still looks wonderful - that's so creative!! Your stitching is such a wonderful look. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
