Just for fun...

I know I saw somebody post just recently a checkbook cover they had made using Tilda and I decided to have a little fun with that idea too.

I hand embroidered the same stitching pattern on the front and back of my cover, and then stamped Edwin with Bike #135 and Tilda with Bike #368. They are both available at Diana's web shop here. I made this up so quickly that I didn't keep track of the Copics I used.

The front...




The back...





I'm so happy that you took time to stop by my blog today, your comments are such an encouragement!

  18. You have such a way with the beautiful stitching on your cards - and I love the idea of the chequebook cover; surely a Magnolia chequebook cover means that it's OK to use that for LOADS of Tilda stamps? LOL! Thanks also for the sweet comment you left on my blog:-) Best wishes, Charlotte
