Happy Ever After!

Hello! I hope you're all well and had a good weekend! Mine was very quiet, I was going to say saving money but that's not been the case as I've been lured in by all the online sales and new season craft stash and bought way too much - oops! One thing I bought was this beautiful MME Love Me paper pad, I'd seen it on a few blogs and had to have it so here's a card made with it! It's also using ..ahem.. a new stamp too! One thing I didn't buy though; you may remember a couple of posts back me saying Jamie had got me a few crafty bits for Christmas, well one of them was this We Are Memory Keepers Sew Easy tool, it's like a little wheel that punches stitch holes to either leave as the are or sew through without faffing with a sewing machine. I decided to sew on this card, it's maybe a little too 'homespun style' for this card and I think I need a bit more practise to keep the lines straight but I like it nonetheless! ! I hope you do too, have a great Monday!
I've paper pieced her dress and blinged up her engagement ring!
