Week 77 LIM - sewing

I am spoilt for choice this week on the Less is More challenge of "sewing" I have sew many! to chose from as it is one of my fav subjects. I've used a mannequin and sentiment from a Creative expressions set that I only got a few weeks ago and not had chance to use yet. An embossing folder down the edge lightly inked with TH inks, a paper pieced from PTI scrap and a couple of MS butterflies.
It also qualifies for the playground snippets challenge over at  Pixies Crafty Workshop, be gentle with me in the playground though girls I am still a bit wobbly.

Wow Lynn, this is fabulous and so perfect for the LIM challenge as well as using snippets. Love the stamps and that wonderful embossing folder.

We'll let you sit in the shade in the playground, just wave when you need a cold drink or someone to move your chair if the sun comes round :)

Good to see you back, we missed you! Di xx

Love your dress model and those super colours. Never quite sure what constitutes a LIM challenge but if this is it lead on! You can sit son the back of my scooter if you like for a quick spin round the playground. Promise we won,t go via the duck pond!!!!! Hugs Mrs A.
