Papertake Weekly Challenge - A Stitch In Time

This weeks Papertake Weekly Challenge is called "A Stitch In Time" it is to simply to use stitching on your project! It can be real or faux! As the sewing machine is on remand for good behaviour I went for real.

I have used Penny Black "Merry Kitty" stamp, Cuttlebug ornament embossing folder, Black & red Bazzill (which always reminds me of Minnie Mouse???), Doodlebug swiss dot ladybug paper, Prima flower, black adhesive gem, red ribbon and a metal Making Memories "Happy Christmas" eyelet greeting. I also used my little roller hole making tool (I'm sure it has a real name?) to go round the edge of the black border surrounding the stamped image! I really enjoyed making this card as Christmas is my FAVORITE time of the year, it's my birthday in September and when that is over with the Christmas carols start........YEAH


  1. Lovely bold colours make it a great Xmas card.

  2. Oh -at last someone else who reahed for the sewing machine! My simple machine stitching took ages, but I did have fun. Sounds like you did too.
