Using Fabric, and can you help



This weeks challenge at Die Cut Dreams is to use fabric (other than ribbon or trim). I came up with a denim and lace rosette type of flower, after taking my sons jeans apart. I adore Sarah Kay stamps and she went really well with the denim. I stickled the flowers and her bow on her hat. She is coloured with Distress inks and I adore the papers.








I would like to enter this for:-

1. Crafty Cardmakers - "use Punches"

2. A Pocket Full Of Posies - challenge # 4 - All That Glitters

3. Creative Inspirations - challenge # 40 - Recycle (my sons Jeans for my rosette flower)

4. Cupcake Crafts - challenge 103 - Lace (used in my rosette flower)








Recipe:-

Stamps - Sarah Kay,

Papers - Papermania Henbury Lane,

Colouring Mediums - Distress Inks,

Tools - Cuttlebug, embossing folder, Nesties, Border punch, Pinking shears,

Embellishments - Stickles star dust, ribbon, brad, Lace, Denim fabric,



Ok I need a little help, when i'm writing my posts and I use the return key in between lines, if I press twice for a bigger gap, so I can go on to talk about something else, when I publish, the gaps have gone and all my writing looks cramped up with no line spaces, if that makes sense to any one. Does any one know how to keep the line spaces in my post.










I hope you all have a good week and thanks for popping by my blog.


Happy crafting
