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 tent...so 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.
Stamp: Lacy Sunshine - Eleanor and Pickle Smores
Paper: Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight, Acorn Hollow 6x6 pad.
Accessories: Stampin Up framelit and festive paper piecing mat, Fancy Tags 1, copic markers, chocolate and yellow pearls, floss and needle.
I would love to enter my card into the following Challenges:
- Challenge #80 - Challenge - Include Pearls on your Creation Twist Lots of Layers
It would be great to see you at Creative Knockouts
this week. For more incredible inspiration please hop on over and see my fellow DT's creations. I would love to see how you sewed on your project be it real or faux.
Have a spectacular day! May it be one filled with tons of laughter.
Thanks for sharing it with me!! Hugs
