Stitching Real or Faux

Good morning bloggers from sunny Florida!! Well actually I am here in Blackpool still but I am scheduling this so when you are reading it, if Mr Blogger behaves, I will be in Florida. Today sees the start of a brand new challenge at Delightful Challenges and the theme this week is:


Well my sewing machine is jammed and I really haven't had the time to sit down and find the on line manual to sort it out so I have added some faux stitching to my card:

I have used Joyful Jamie which is available to purchase here from Digital Delights.  She has been coloured with Copics and glitter to her wings.  I have cut her out with a SB Nestie and distressed the edges with Antique Linen DI.  The papers are by Memory Box called Pixie and I have also used some glitter card from my fabulous 12 x 12 pad of glitter papers my daughter bought me last time we were in Florida together.  The snowflakes and holly are all done with Spellbinders dies and the poinsettia is a Marianne die.  The sentiment is from Wendy's Caroling Sentiments Set which is available to purchase here. The gem, lace and ric rak are from my stash.

Please pop over to Delightful Challenges and see what the rest of the Design Team have made for lots of inspiration. Remember you don't have to use a Digital Delights image to enter but we love it if you do and then you can enter it twice!!

Thanks for looking I'm off now in search of a roller coaster lol!! Take care xx
