Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge 42...Stitching

Happy Friday everyone...the weather has cooled down considerably this week and I am once again a happy bunny because it is cooler...sorry to you all you sun lovers out there...I guess you can't please all of the people all of the time lol!

Today see's a new challenge at Dare U 2 Digi Stamp...a fab theme this week of stitching...I dug out my sewing machine which threw a hissy fit half way through stitching round the card...I had to remove the thread...finish stitching the holes and then join up the dots with a black fine line pen...what a palaver! It kind of looks OK even though I had a wobble in a couple of places! I've used this gorgeous Beer Monster from Pollycraft and I just love the expression on his face...he's so cool! Pop on over to the Dare U challenge blog to see the rest of the creations from my teamies...they are fab and very inspirational!

I'm also entering this card into the Pollycraft 'FLASH THOSE FREEBIES' Challenge!

Your card is gorgeous as always; no one but you could make a monster look so cute! I love your lay out and the colors are just wonderful! You always have coordinated brads, ribbons and such to go with your image that you've colored - really neat! I love the stitching - you can't see that it had a hissy - my sewing machine does that too - but one day I'll drag it out! LOL! Glad the weather has improved; might be a little hot today for us but that's long as I'm not in it! :)

how awful that you took the time to use your sewing machine and then it wouldn't cooperate! naughty machine!

take care
hugs & blessings!

I'm with you about the weather Donna, such a relief that it's a bit cooler! I love your card, the beer monster made me smile and I love how you've coloured him. Nightmare about the sewing machine but what a brilliant recovery :D! Have a great (cool) weekend, hugs, Chris xx
