Anything Goes Challenge #80 - Stitching, Real or Faux

Hello fellow bloggers.

Firstly I must explain why I have not been blogging  recently. My hard drive died and I was so cross because it was only bought back in July when my other hard drive went to hard drive heaven. You would expect it to last more than 3 months - that's not unreasonable is it? The supplier has now replaced it but I have been computerless and unable to blog.

The worst part has been reinstalling all my software, printers and files AGAIN! Such a pain!

Anyhow rant over!

Our new challenge at Anything Goes is Stitching, real or faux. My card this time is a birthday card for my youngest grandson who was one last week and we're all delighted to hear yesterday that his mum is expecting a little brother for him.

I love this Molly Bloom scarecrow stamp and use it quite a lot, the number one and today stamps are from the Cute Campanions patchwork numbers set and all have been coloured with promarkers. The background  papers have been layered in a patchwork fashion and are from my huge stash of freebie papers which I am still on a mission to use up! Some faux stitching around the edges of the papers and a couple of craft candy adds the finishing touches.

Hope you like it.

I am entering this card into the following challenges: Recycle/Anything Goes Birthday Anything Goes Anything Goes Stitching Anything Goes Birthday with Number
