Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge WK #25.....Stitching

Hellllooooo bloggers and Happy Saturday to you all :) I lurve Saturday's and there are 2 reasons for this.......one, its the weekend and two it's Secret Crafter challenge day....Yay! This weeks theme has been set by Julia and she would like us to show some stitching on our cards! I bought a cheapie sewing machine yonks ago and thought this would be an ideal opportunity to have a go at stitching some paper to card. I knew the machine was in the loft because that's where hubby put it......can he find it?....not on your nellie :( so I'm afraid my card has faux stitching on it, but it's still stitching....of sorts lol! The DP were a freebie with a card making mag and the orange card is Core'dinations. This gorgeous, sweet, little image is 'Aimee' and she is a digi download from Grab-A-Doodle-Do, she is adorable and I have coloured her in using PM's and added some glamour dust to her wings and crown. The sentiment is an Elzybell stamp and the flowers, brad and tiny heart buttons are from my stash. I hope you can pop over and join us this week :) TFL

LOL Can't find the sewing machine, huh? There is probably an issue there that needs attention Donna, but I live in a glass house so I won't throw stones! I'm so ready for some major Spring cleaning!!!!
Your card is gorgeously adorable! Aimee is so cute and you colored her perfectly! Love these papers too and the subtle distressed look! Great faux stitching!
Enjoy your Sat!
Blessings, Maria
