Had a busy day!

This is the card I have been making all day!!! I decided I would try doing the Just Magnolia Too challenge which is 3d. I have done traditional decoupage often enough but not with my own stamped image - until today. Thanks to Debby Yates of a Scrap Journey for a brilliant tutorial. I have also been brave and done some stitching with my new Janome mini sewing machine which I found on ebay for £19.99. (Brand new and came from a sewing machine shop so if you want details just let me know.) I also used my Promarkers for colouring - sometimes I chicken out and watercolour lol. I used some of my favourite K & Co papers, wild raspberry.I think you can almost see that Spring Tilda has been 3d'd but I have added another pic to show it a bit better. I found some plain card which is just the right shade for the DP. The papers have also been inked round the edges with a Brilliance dewdrop ink pad. I found some of my cross stitch thread just the right colour to tie through the buttons! Buttons, flowers and ribbon from my stash. I'm hoping that this card does for several challenges - after I've spent most of the day on it!!
Friday Sketchers:- the lovely sketch.
Just Magnolia Too:- the lovely Tilda image and 3d.
Papertake Weekly:- any challenge from first 99 - Favourite things -K & Co DP.
Pollycraft Challenge:- Favourite things - K & Co DP.
ABC Challenge :- B for buttons .

Sorry about the card below!!! I made it using the sketch from day 1 of the Mojo Monday week 100. I think the only thing you could say about it is that it is quite cheery. The papers are some I found in a drawer and the sentiment is from Papermania.
I thought I heard the postie about 2 hours or more ago but I haven't been to check cos I'm waiting for the Whiff of Joy Fall set. Ok I gave in - it's here and it's gorgeous. But I can't do anything with it yet cos I'm going to a friend's house tonight to craft.
I have been so wrapped up in this 3d card that I nearly managed to cremate the lamb I was cooking to make curry for tea. I only just caught it in time. I would have been popular if it had been ruined.
Now Id best post this and enter the challenges as the dogs will want their tea and a walk soon.
Let me know what you think - good or bad, comments are always welcome and I love to find new blogs to visit. I follow quite a lot of blogs but you always find someone new as you hop around.
Looking forward to the weekend.
