A Stitch in time....

Hi everyone!
Wow you guys have been busy! Loads of gorgeous cards last week - big thanks to you all for joining in! I'd like to welcome all the new faces too - there were a few last week! So Welcome to PTW! We'd also like to welcome new DT member - DawnyP! You can check out Dawny's blog here. She makes some fab cards so do keep an eye out for her designs!
The winner of the downloads from Kaboodle Doodles is Madge , so if you could either email me with your details or contact Andrea directly via her website that would be great!
Onto this weeks challenge: A stitch in time is simply to use stitching on your project! It can be real or faux!
Here are the fab creations from the DT to inspire you!







For those without blogs:

Pam sent this card - isn't it lovely!? Thanks for sharing Pam!


Ann said...

Wow Steph, I am so amazed and pleased to win the Challenge last week - fantastic and thank you. The cards this week are absolutely gorgeous, so thats it, I'm off now to get the sewing machine out, and spend the rest of the afternoon creating my card. xxx

Well this challenge was right on time. I just made these this weekend for "My Snowball Lady". I can't sew a stitch, so I love my Cutter Bee Piercing Bugs for faux stitching. I have sevral more on my blog too, but here is the link for this entry.
