Up in stitches!

OK you can say that was kinda cheesy(but stiching is today's challenge)....and yes I am double posting again (for you Barb)! But let me tell you this 365 blog has just got me all sorts of creative this week! LOL! I love it!


Today's (or I should say Tuesday's) challenge was to create something with stitching! And not just stitching around the card. It had to be an image of some sort.

So I played with this for awhile. I thought I was going to be so cool and try to free hand something. Well that didn't work. So my WOSFF, Barb, said to stamp an image and then stitch it. Why didn't I think of that? So here is what I came up with.....

I used TAC's Curls and Swirls, stamped on the back and stitched on the front! I think my "stitching" days might be over now though, because I don't think I did a very good job. I think my sewing machine does a much better job!

I also added some bling with some colored gems and a little dot here and there with my Stardust Gelly Roll Pen! I love that thing!

One more note, the background paper is some of my favorite TAC retired paper. I am holding on to it like gold because I just don't want to use it up. (It's like buying a candle and not burning it right?) I love that paper SO much and it isn't available anymore. But I am happy to get it out and use it today!

Gonna go play with the kids! Hope you are having a great day!

LOL!! I love this... I don't think the machine would have made it look as good :)
And I've got only about 1/4 to 1/2 of a sheet of that paper left... hoarding it!

I only have scraps left of this paper. I love it, too, and am so sad that it is gone! Your card is gorgeous and I agree with Barb...your stitching rocks! I love it!
Hugs,
