Stamp and Create - new monthly challenge


Hi everyone! Well, it's back to the normal world for me, now. My grandson has left to go back to KY, I'm now back to work, and I'm trying to get settled back into my normal routine again. It's time for a new monthly challenge from Stamp and Create. The new challenge is STITCHING/SEWING, which can be hand, faux, or machine stitching.


For my card, I used High Hopes stamp Cheeky Sean and Smile Popcorn Bear for the seniment. Isn't he the cutest?? He's colored with Copic Sketch markers. There's lots of machine stitching on the panels, and even some faux stitching on the sentiment panel that was done with a marker. I also used Ivory May Arts Silk Ribbon along with the Bow Easy; a heart charm, a large flower spacer and a Basic Grey brad for the center of it.  Please join us over at Stamp and Create's blog to play along with the challenge for a chance to win an awesome prize from Lacey. Thanks for stopping by to see me, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
