Le Challenge- Nature

I have just been able to squeeze in an entry to this month's Le Challenge - I came out of hospital for the third time in two months on Monday. I am pretty desperate to get back to normal, and crafting is getting back to normal for me. Before I was into hospital this time, I was planning on doing some printing for this month's challenge, but I just haven't had the time or energy to commit to it.

My eldest son, Albert started his GCSEs on Friday, so I have made him a four leafed clover good luck card. He is a lovely bright boy, but he has found it very stressful without me and revising for his exams too.

My Sissix Big Shot gave me four perfect heart shaped leaves (not sure what I used to do before My Big Shot!). I added a few stitches with embroidery thread for the paler ring that you get on clover.


I once found a four leaf clover when I was a child, on holiday in Austria, and kept it for years. Unfortunately, I think I may have left it in the attic of my old house.

Join in with next month's Le Challenge, by clicking on the link to the right. You can also see all the other entries this month. A new theme goes up on the 15 th of each month.

Love
Mrs Jones xx

    1. It is so nice to be back home with my family. Both my children have found it hard without a Mum being around.

    1. I think searching for four leaf clovers was something my parents suggested to stop us getting bored - it certainly worked. Thanks for your comment.
