Challenge #27 at 4 Crafty Chicks.

Good morning! First off I want to say sorry for my late post. I am not feeling very good and my bed called to bad on me I didn't even pre-post my card. Sorry to my fellow peeps too for letting you down.

Secondly, loved, loved everyone's take on Lori's challenge last week. It was a blast seeing all of the beautiful creations.

Thirdly today is Thursday and you know what that means! A new challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks. Who is the hostess this week? So glad you asked it is our fabby creator and the girl who can make you laugh until you cry..LEANNE from Banking on Crafts. Let's get onto her fabby challenge for us.


What a terrific challenge. I usually do fo stitching but today, I am going to shock you. This is my very first hand stitched card. I used two strands of white cross stitching floss, after I poked holes. Now I was surprised at how long it took to do, but I like the effect and will be doing it again...LOL. Thanks, Leanne for pushing me with this challenge to try something new to keep up to my crafty peep *wink*.

The color combo I used for my card came from Scrapmaster's Paradise (it is such pretty colors and the DT's have amazing inspirations for it).

My sketch came from Clean and Simple. It is their 129th challenge. It really helped me with the colors. Thank you so much.

Here is my card. Like I said I used white floss and the stamp set for the flowers is from simply said (SU retired). My Sentiment is from Verve-Beautiful you! I used a punch from SU, flowers, and nesties. My mom seen my card and has put the request in to have it...LOL. The stitching took a while but I feel it is so worth it.

I have great news! One of our other crafty chicks Lori and her family are going on a trip with my family. We are going to seek the sun for two weeks. I am looking so forward to it. We are getting ready to leave tomorrow. The sun and warm temps are going to be so wonderful. I will check out everyones inspirations for the challenges when I get back.
Hope you enjoy Leanne's challenge as much as I did. My other crafting partners Lori and Melissa and Leanne have rockin, rockin inspiration for you. Come and join us for some stitching.

Thanks again for stopping bye! Have an amazing Thursday!
