Woodware - Sweet Dreams

This week our theme on the Woodware challenge blog is "Sweet Dreams". I was going to make a card using one of the cute house mouse stamps. But a few of the girls were thinking along the same lines. So I thought I had better think of something else. There weren't however many sweet dreams this week for me. For the first time I had to attend for jury duty. I never win anything in a raffle or the lottery. So out of nearly 100 people I never thought I would get picked..... but I did. I did find it very interesting, if not particularly pleasant, since the accused was facing charges of rape, sexual assault and robbery. I found that I didn't sleep too well especially the night before we had to reach a verdict. We returned a unanimous guilty verdict and I am happy we made the right decision. But I really don't want to have to go through it again!! After 6 days I was actually looking forward going back to work!

Back to this week's project ..... I decided to make a "quilt" effect for my background. I cut some strips of card in various widths. Then I stamped them tone on tone colours to add more interest. I then cut out a 14cm square of white card and covered it with double sided adhesive film or tape. it is then very easy to lay on your strips to build up your patchwork. I then trim off all the ends.

Then I finished off with some faux stitching and buttons and pearls.

The sentiment comes from a new clear Stampendous set. Remember to stop by the Woodware blog for details of the latest challenge and lots of inspiration!!
Looking forward to the weekend and spending some time tidying up the garden!!
