That's A Smore Eh!

Whaooo! We are into our second week of holidays and so far we have survived my oldest sons wisdom teeth removal, physiotherapy, doctors appointments and of course the beautiful hot weather.  I am still dreaming of having everyone sleep in for at least one day during this summer :).

I am giddy with excitement to show you my new DT card for Creative Knockouts.  Our sponsor this week is the wonderful Lacy Sunshine and she has graciously let me create with the Eleanor and Pickles Smores digi image.  We are on Challenge # 45 and we are asking you to SEW IT UP - REAL OR FAUX

I picked this image because this is one thing I just love doing with my kids each summer.  Sadly we won't be able to go camping this year because of my accident but I did try to get the camping feeling on this card.  We love to I decided that this card required some real stitching.  First thing was to find my Framelits and was very excited to use my Festive Paper Piercing mats.  It is my first time using them and thought it would be the perfect thing to help me hand sew on this card. Then out came the embroidery floss and my cross stitch needle. Both layers were sewed by hand and two different styles.
