A Stitch in Time

Hello Everybody!

What do I say every month--wow! It's already another month!  And now we are going into fall-ok it might be a little early, but I am started to get excited about pumpkins and various shades of brown, red, and orange.  :)

However, the card I'm showing you today has nothing to do with fall but everything to do with our new challenge at House of Cards-Stitching!

I love this card that I made:

For the challenge you can use faux stitching (pen, stickers, etc) or real stitching with a machine or done by hand.  

So my process is funny because I get out this little sewing machine by provo craft and because it has one unpredictable stitch and I'm missing a piece-I totally abandon that idea.  Then I get out my 2 sheets of faux stitches.  And then 3 is a charm you know--I get out my We R Memory Keepers sewing tool thing.

I pierced the paper with 3 different types of stitches and then sewed them up.  I used 2 Stampin' Up stamps that a friend of mine gave me (Thank you!).  I used Copics to color the frog and glued sequins that matched the thread.  

I don't use my We R Memory Keepers sewing thing enough.  But thanks to this challenge I did :)  

Please check out what my teammates have created.  They are super talented!

We can't wait to see what you create!

Until next time my friends...you are sew special! :)
