Hi!

Quick card I put together inspired by this weeks DCM challenge, Supersize me! This week the dare is to use big big embellishments - namely paper flowers so I did use some of my hoard of blooms and layered up a few then used some fabric in the middle and carried on the layering making a button stack in the center.
All the goodies bar the blooms are American Crafts (cardstock, Thickers, ribbon and Craft Fair papers & Flair badge). Those fabric Thickers are my current obsession, they've duped the foam ones to be my favorite Thickers!

I've not updated with new stuff for a bit so I'll share some quick snaps...............
Another current retro crafty thing I'm loving - pom poms! I got a big pile of super delish wool from my haberdashers so I've been away making them, this one is about 1" across so I'm going to make more and make a necklace I think. The polka dot box is something that's sat on my desk inspiring me. The paper is one of a new set I've been designing for Crafty Templates - that's what's keeping me busiest this past few weeks!

Also wanted to share this....
It's the most super handy thing I've ever made because it keeps thread and needles together in one place! I saw the idea here and then adapted it to a jam jar so I could fill it with my bits of embroidery thread to keep with my needles. Super handy for sewing buttons on cards and LO's which I always am and if you are too I can defo recommend making yourself one :)
