Good evening all.,

So sorry, I'm not being a very good blogger past few days. I have been worried and distracted thinking about Poppy's operation today. So glad it over with now, the op went well, she's feeling  a little sorry for herself tonight and a bit sleepy but she still welcomed some cuddles off momma. Bless her. 

I m hoping to have a big catch up on Blog hopping and DT commenting tomorrow, so if I haven't stopped by yours yet, I will be there shortly lol..

I have a quick card to show you now, using a Milton and co topper that came with magazine, a while ago. I have made this to enter into the following challenges:

I was inspired to try this technique from the lovely Kat who showed a tutorial of how she gets the stitching to look so fab on her cards. Thanks Kat. Hope you like my take using twine instead of DMV thread.

Thanks to everyone who visits my blog and for all the wonderful comments you leave. I love reading each and everyone of them

Hugs Kelly
