Dottie's world challenge..blood, sweat and tears!!


Thios week on the Dottie's world challenge we were asked to use something old and something new as well as a charmed download. This turned out to be a real labour of love as I sliced open my finger on my paper trimmer which bled all over my papers so I had to bin them and start again! Then my sewing m achine jammed and continued to jam and several hours later I found it was something so very simple! I had put the wrong bobbin in it from a differnet machine and it was therefore loose! Oh I cried!! Tears of joy that it was working again and anger because it was something so silly!
Anyway, the something old is the papers, twinkling H20s and sewing machine ( 17 years old!) and the something new are the paper flowers and fibres.

I did smile at your mishapes at making this card, it sounded just like me on a good day!
