JUGS - last project as GDT

Hi there, happy Sunday to you all. 
Well... I gave the sewing machine a good run yesterday afternoon. I made a sewing machine cover! All shaggy patchwork. I'll have to take a photo and share it with you. Loads of fun and I love the neat finish on the stitching. I luuurvvve with it I am!  I should have said yesterday - I will NOT be using it on my cards, lol. No way! I can't help but wonder if stitching on cardstock and through gluey bits is what made my old machine deteriorate as fast as it did? So I will be taking my little old faithful Brother in for a service and a clean so it is feeling a bit loves and I will put it aside to do the papercraft stitching.  The new Singer is most certainly reserved for fabric ;)

Anyway... I'm here today to share a card with you. This is my last project for Just Us Girls Challenges. It has been wonderful participating this month as Guest DT. Thanks so much for having me! 

The challenge this week is to use a Template or make something 3D with the theme of Valentines. I decided to use a Step card template and this sweet Tilda. She was a special edition Tilda - Raining Hearts Tilda, which I purchased form Creashop in The Netherlands. Two Euro from each stamp sold is being donated to Pink Ribbon as well so I can't think of a better excuse to buy buy buy!!

The papers are Prima Romantique - looove these papers! All of the gorgeous flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts

It would be great if you could come and play along at JUGS this week!

Some challenges for me to enter are...

I will be back later on with my MDUC card to share with you. Until then, have a lovely weekend!
