Totally Papercrafts ,,,,, Stitching Challenge :-)

Hi all :-) It is almost the weekend ,, again ,, where do the weeks go ??

This week we have a couple off announcements to make ,, we are welcoming 3 new DT members to the team !! Wendy, Dora and Linda :-) Welcome aboard :-) We also have the pleasure to invite Lisa who is joining us as out guest Designer for the next 2 months :-)

This week it is the boss, Cathy's, turn to choose the theme and she chose ,,,


I do love sewing on my cards and have my machine constantly plugged in but you can use faux or hand stitching too if you prefer :-)

We are sponsored by Susie from Die Cut Dreams and she will be giving one lucky entrant a lovely assortment of Tibetan silver charms :-) Thanks Susie xx

For my card I just HAD to use my new House Mouse stamp ! This is the new stamp of the month for November and is called ‘Balanced Diet’ ,, soo cute ! :-) I coloured with Copics and inked the edges with Tumbled Glass DI, I then added dots of Glossy Accents to the sprinkles and Star Dust stickles here and there. The papers are My Minds Eye from the Life of the Party pack and I used some Chocolate Chip SU card and Whitewash Coredinations too. I embossed the panel of Coredinations with a Sizzix Dots folder and sewed all the edges on my machine. I added a ribbon and BG Button with twine and the sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp Exclusives set.

I followed the fab sketch on the Midnight Madness Challenge. America, on behalf of the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge is sponsoring with 2 gorgeous HM stamps this week, neither of which I own so I will be keeping my fingers crossed :-)

Thanks for looking :-) Please pop over to the TPC to say ‘Hi’ to our new DT and GD girls and please leave comments too ,, we all like to read them eh ! :-)
