Anyone seen the month of May??

Anyone seen the month of May?  It seems to have just flown by and not stopped for me to enjoy it. My roses are out in full bloom and I've missed seeing them bud and blossom. The perfume from the pink one is amazing I'm told, (I don't have any sense of smell!). As it's on a north facing wall and in the cool of an evening, many people have passed by on their way to our local and commented.

It's time for a lovely new challenge at International Art And Soul (INTAAS) and the challenge for the next two weeks is Stitching. Please drop by the blog and show us your lovely cards.

For my card this week I chose to stitch with my little pink sewing machine, still can't stitch straight with it as you can see!!  I can't believe this little machine can do so many stitches.  I chose three pages from the First Edition Spring Feast paper pad and layered them up and distressed the edges .  The little green die cut is part of a Marianne Dies set, I think its called Anja's Squares, feel free to correct me.  The centre bird house image is by Hunkydory from my stash as is the birthday sentiment. The little pink poppies are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Please drop by my teamies and see their fabulous creations.

Before I go here the previous fortnight's card, just no time in the last two weeks to get to the blog. It looks like June will be the same, where did I ever find the time to go to work? A fabulous stencil from Red Dot Laser Designs and using Sue Wilson's double Pierced squares A and B. Sentiment from Spellbinders.
