Holiday Monday & A New DT Card

Good morning all!
Firstly can I say a big hi & a wave to my latest follower, BA! Thank you for joining my blogging journey & following my humble little blog! Ladies do check out BA's fab blog if you have a mo!

It's Monday again & that means a new DT card for My grafico challenge & inspirational blog!

This week we were given the fab Sew Much Fun Digital Stamp Set

 from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff to play with!
I have to say it made a pleasant change to make something other than Easter cards!
I seem to have been making them for ever! lol
I merged some of the digi's to come up with this image.
I trimmed the image & matt with decorative edge scissors to give a raggedy appearance
I used promarkers as always to colour up the image.
The measuring tape was coloured to match my Mum's tape which she's had as long as I can remember!
The burning question has to be just how accurate is it after all these years?
The scissors are coloured like my tiny decoupage scissors which I seem to have misplaced at the moment!
Has anyone seen them?
The sewing machine was coloured from my minds eye, the thread just wanted to be pink & the heart fell onto the image as I was making the card up so I stuck it where it fell!
The flowers, buttons,ribbons & brads were all from my stash!
I made the sentiment up on my PC & went over the letter with a promarker.
The striped paper was from Southfield Stationers as was the pastel lightweight cardstock.
The layout of this card was inspired by a sketch that I found on Feline Playful

This is for the Eat Sleep Stamp Challenge this week! Thanks for dropping in!
