Material Girl!

Hi everyone, a scheduled post again today for our new theme at Try It On Tuesday, and as it is a sewing, stitching, faux stitching, textiles kind of theme we are calling it 'Material Girl' 
Please take a look at the Design Team's fabulous samples!

I am not usually much of a material girl but I did enjoy making this card!
I used my machine to sew the old T shirt fabric onto some sturdy cotton, then it was just a matter of layering lace, the beautiful Crafty Individuals image and some flower bits and pieces - some by glueing and some by stitching!

You have the usual 2 weeks in which to enter and there are some rules to check out on the TIOT blog! 

If you are wondering how far we have got we should be in Toulouse by now! 

Thanks for looking, Chrisx

Ooh, Toulouse - that's where my current book has me right now - (Kate Mosse's Burning Chambers.) I'm not much of a 'material girl' either, but I'd never have guessed that from your fabulous page. It's gorgeous.
Hope you're having an ab fab time in my favourite country - and eating lots of yummy French food :-)
