Upcycling


Hello lovely crafters.  This post is a very quick one, because it is 01:30 and I only got back from A&E a couple of hours ago.  DH and I had been up there from 17:00 to 23:30 and hadn't even eaten since breakfast, but I was about to post this card before we had a mercy dash on.  To cut a very long story short, my dear mother had to be taken to A&E for a very nasty infection, and they are keeping her in overnight!  

This card was made with a small square of fabric that was sent to me as a sample when I purchased some batting for a bag. And it was too pretty to just throw away, so I just framed it with a gold foil frame and stamped and embossed a sentiment to coordinate.

I'll leave you with the pictures, whilst I go off to bed (early for me, but I'm shattered).  Have a great week everyone.  That's me signing off.
