Dotty, but I'm not that crazy!!

Hello!!  Hope you are well and are enjoying your week!

I thought I'd do a bit of experiment and zig zag stitch, but I don't know now, wish I'd done straight stitch instead, maybe more practice is required!!

And it looks all wonky in the pics, although it is spot on - I had to measure the gaps to make sure after I took them, just to make sure!!

Anyway, enough waffle/excuses and here it is

I used some more of my Theresa Collins Papers and saddle stitched grosgrain from Scrapbook Sisters; lace from John Lewis, Prima flowers and a Papermania felt brad

And a sweetie of an image from The Paper Shelter, and I love how she coloured up!!

Hmmm - not my favouritist card ever, but it's OK - HB has been encouraging me to pare down my designs (I think he has figured out how much some of the embellishments cost!!), but I'm not sure it worked with this one... humph!!

Anyway, there you go...

Let me know what you think!!

More tomorrow

Sue xx

I love your image and the coloring Sue. I think your stitching is fine, it is the dots on the paper making it look wonky.
