for the boys

Now it's time for some boys cards. Just been having a lil with some of my new Copics, Basic Grey "periphery" papers and SU punch.






I had a new toy delivered yesterday. A new sewing machine...woooo hooooo!! Yippee!!, there is only one problem, I can't sew for toffee...and it's a computerised one......heaven help me, pmsl. I've spent a few hours this morning watching the DVD and trying to understand the instructions, I have now managed to thread the cotton and sew a couple of decorative stitches on fabric and PAPER....ooo errrr get me.....I'm almost a pro now.....lol!! It's a cracking lil machine which I got from e-bay, the model is a Brother ES202o. I only ordered it the evening before last and it arrived 7.40 yesterday morning, COR!! how's that for speedy delivery. So watch this space, as my next cards could feature some machine sewing. Anyway, I hope you all have a lovely weekend, take care all xx vicki xx
