Show us Some Stitching

Good morning to you, hope you enjoyed your long weekend those of you who had one.  It rained such a lot here in Blackpool yesterday - good for the garden!!

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Crafty Sentiments and the theme for this week's challenge is we want to see some stitching - real or faux.  As I have jammed my sewing machine and haven't got round to downloading the manual from the internet I have gone with faux:


I have use the super cute stamp Hedgehog Hello from Crafty Sentiments which is available here to purchase. He has been coloured with Copics and chalks and I added some Stickles to the butterfly and flowers.  The image has been cut out with SB Romantic Rectangles.  I have used a  Cutter Bee Bug to make the stitches and joined them with a Lilac Jelly Roll Glaze Pen.  The papers are Nitwits Bonnets n Bowties.  Dies used are MB Precious Hearts, Cheery Lynn Tags 2 and Build a Flower 1, Joy Crafts Daisy and the leaves were made with a punch.  I used DI in Milled Lavender on the flowers. Ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl, pearls and brad from my stash.

We have a fabulous prize on offer this week for the lucky winner:
