After making this card recently, it's been in the back of my mind to try other stamps on canvas and I thought this one from Best Of Flowers might look almost as if it had been embroidered on. I inked it up using my beloved markers, huffed on the stamp and pressed it onto the canvas - easy peasy!
I snipped the top into a label shape. TIP: It's easy to keep the label symmetrical if you cut one side and use the off-cut as a template to cut the other side. I added some textured card stock cut with the Modern Label punch and layered a punched circle over it before punching a hole through all the layers and tying up with some linen thread.
The sentiment is from the beautiful Express Yourself hostess set. (These are exclusive sets available for those placing a group or single order of £150 or more, but members of my Stampers 6 club are also able to order them. Click here to find out more.)
My friend gives my youngest son piano lessons and he is very fond of her. I thought you might like to see the card he made for her too. He drew the piano but that's the cat from Storybook Friends on the stool and the speech bubble is from Timeless Talk!

Thank goodness (as they say) it's Friday! Last Thursday evening I mentioned to my husband that it would be Friday the 13th next day. "Is it?" he said and added in deceptively casual tones: "I've got my parachute jump tomorrow morning." Oh very funny! I mentioned it again the following day when my youngest son came home from school. "It's Friday 13th today!" I said. "How was your day?"My son threw his bags down in the doorway. "I know!" he said and added: "Something terrible happened!" I looked at him. "Oh no! What happened?" I asked. He frowned while he considered this for a few minutes. "I can't remember now," he said sunnily and sauntered off to raid the kitchen.
Have a lovely weekend and I'll see you very soon,
