In Stitches


Hello to everyone.
I hope that you are all well and that you are having a nice week  :)

Thank you to everyone who took part in last week's challenge – there were some  great tales on the sketch and as always, some gorgeous work :)

But we need a winner and this week it is ….


It’s you  Andrea – well done to you chick, and  if you e-mail me I’ll pass your details on to Wendy, and hugest of thanks to her for her wonderful sponsorship xxx

And here …..

….. is Andrea’s gorgeous card.

So onto our challenge for this week and it’s one we’ve had before but it’s one we all enjoy I think cos it is

In Stitches

So we just want to see some stitching somewhere on your card – that’s it!! It can be real or fake / faux / doodles. Tis up to you :)

And as it is the last challenge of the month, we are so pleased to welcome back our featured sponsor, the wonderful Heidi from Simon Says Stamp.


There is a $25 voucher up for grabs for you to spend in Heidi’s shop and  as she is so brill and pays for the shipping as well, you get to spend every bit of the $25 on goodies.

Thank you Heidi – you are a star xxx

So without any more waffle from me,  let’s have a look at what the PTW chicksters have done this week – enjoy!!!.

So that’s what we did and now it’s over to you. Don’t forget if you get a sec to check out our individual blogs and see what else we’ve all been up to.

Have a great week peeps and see you next Tuesday.

Ultramum said...

This made me search out a template that I got a while back that helps get the stitches in a regular pattern - something I am not good at freehand!

The cards by the DT really are very lovely this week. Of course, they always are. I think stitching, whether faux or real, really adds to the look of cards.
