Your Next Stamp Challenge #39~Stitching Real or Faux!


Hello!  It's time for a new Your Next Stamp Challenge, and this time we want to see stitching on your beautiful creations (real or faux).  As most of you know I add stitching to almost everything, so this challenge is right up my alley:)

The rest of the DT have made so many cute cards by paper piecing Rainy Day Fhiona, so I wanted to give it a try:)  I used some fun dp from the My Mind's Eye Hattie paper pad and the layout from this week's The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #101

We've decided to change the way we do prizes.  From now Karen will be giving away a stamp set to a random winner!  The prize for this challenge is Bad Hair Day Fhiona:



Isn't she so cute?!

My kiddos are on spring break this week, so we are heading to the beach tomorrow for a couple days.  Hopefully it won't rain the whole time!  Also, my hubby and I are celebrating our 11th wedding anniversary this weekend and plan to go out for a special anniversary dinner on Saturday.  My taste buds are already watering as I anticipate my filet.  I LOVE a good steak!  Have a wonderful day!

Kerri
