Inspiration Monday - {All Wired Up}

I'm particularly wired today, well actually my project is wired not me personally! We have a new inspiration theme at La-La Land Crafts this week - you guessed it - All Wire Up!

It is all about adding wire, or chains, to your makes. So I thought about it for a bit. I knew I wanted to add wire to my flowers, and I was thinking circle flowers - I do have a love of circle flowers. But I wanted to do a bit of stitchery so here is what I came up with this week...

Some Embroidery Hoop art using one of the gorgeous new release La-La Land Crafts stamps - Watercan Marci.

Cute isn't she? I'm a big fan of Hoop Art as you can see from my Hoop Art Pinterest board.

The flowers and leaves are made from my other obsession at the moment - Washi Tape.

The sentiment is from the Marci With Lantern set.

Don't forget to pop on over to the La-La Land Crafts blog to check out the other DT members' Wire makes today and on Friday and link up your La-La Land Crafts makes to the Gallery to be in with a chance to win.

Ok I'll see you later crafty alligators.
